Clone a USB Dongle? - Page 3

post #21 of 27
Ok, I have an idea. Take a strong lock box, and mount it under your desk. Drill a hole just large enough for a USB extension cable, but not the dongle to fit through. Put the cable thru the hole, plug the dongle in to the cable, and lock the lock box. Then if you need the dongle, you plug in the usb extension cable. The lock box protects the dongle from damage since nothing can get near it. You could even add a layer of something soft like foam to further protect it.

If you really love your dongle, you could line the box in velvet or silk, but I think that's a bit over the top for most dongles. tongue.gif

If you have purchased the software legally you can get the USB dongle replaced easily.

Plug the USB dongle into the back of your case?

I appreciate the tips guys, but this isn't what I'm asking about. If it's not possible, then it's not possible.

It's probably not a flash drive, so you can't "clone" it. It has different hardware inside. All it has in common with a USB flash drive is it has a USB plug and a driver.

Thanks, that's what I'm finding too. But looks like there are companies that can do this legally.

I am looking to do the same this, aha company have you found? Thanks

Hello!

We are in the same boat. The company where we bought the software stop supporting the version that we use for years.

Importing all files from format X to Y represent more work than the value of doing it. So we do not want to upgrade all our file and all the custom programming done around the file used.

Because we use the dong in a plant, we would like to make a copy of the dongle in case somebody steal it or broke it.
(some people used to steal grey hard ball in old mouse, why not a dongle?)

Does someone found a way?

Thank you,
Have a great day!
Sebastien
