    I have a USB flash device that I'd like to have my application use. The device has some extra custom commands beyond what you would find on a normal flash device.

    Can I create a userland IOKIt driver or do I need to have it be at the kernel level? The device manufacturer has given me a document that details the commands for the special functionality. The commands look like SCSI commands but I'm not sure as I'm new to hardware programming. They're basically data buffers that have to be setup a specific way and then sent to the device.

    thanks in advance
