Default List your DeviceStage Ready Devices

NOTE: DeviceStage ready device is not a device that just shows up in Devices and Printers, Its a device that either has a corrent hardware Icon and or expanded device options/controls.

So far, the only DeviceStage ready devices I have are:
Logitech G9 mouse
Xbox 360 Wireless Receiver for Windows
Microsoft Lifecam VX-6000 Webcam

for some unfamilar with DeviceStage, here is an example


List your devices!

Is this in the RC? Or has it only appeared in the latest builds?

It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, but in this case, I would settle for a sentence, to define where to find this data?

Why? The device manufacturers have to provide the drivers, either to MS to be included or via download from their own site. Are they going to sue themselves?

yeah, what crainger said, device manufactures have the SDK and have to add support by them self.

Thought the manufacturers would be mad because MS is providing something to use instead of their software. Typically features like that are only offered through their third party software.

But, if they have to give them to MS, then ok there wouldn't be a problem.
