    Hi basically i have a program that gets a handle on a USB device lusing '\\\\?\\e:' but i want to be able to get a handle on it using its device instance id 'STORAGE\REMOVABLEMEDIA\7&324ACC50&0&RM:'

    How do i impliment this, i have tried the following below and it just doesnt work but i guessed it wouldnt be this easy, any ideas????????? any help would be apreciated!!?

    HANDLE hRead = CreateFile(
    //("\\\\?\\E:"),
    (" \\\\.\\STORAGE\REMOVABLEMEDIA\7&324ACC50&0&RM:"),
    FILE_GENERIC_READ,
    FILE_SHARE_READ,
    NULL,
    OPEN_EXISTING,
    0,
    NULL);
