Device.Portable Testing Prerequisites
Before you test a portable device by using the Windows Hardware Certification Kit (Windows HCK), review the following requirements:
System that supports USB 2.0 (at a minimum)
A USB cable for the device that you're testing
The latest Windows HCK filters or updates
A class driver provided by Microsoft
If you provide a custom INF with your device, you must run the HCK tests using the Windows class driver (you may not test using your custom INF).
Your device must install with the Microsoft Media Transfer Protocol class driver.
For Windows Vista and later, your device must appear under the Portable Devices category in Device Manager.
Devices that are read-only must include at least one sample of each format type supported by the device.
If the device supports removable media, the media must be added before testing.
Run the test with only one portable device connected at a time (this includes Mass Storage Class devices).
The battery on the device should be fully charged before testing is started.
Test computer configuration
To run portable device tests, you must know how to:
Switch a device to a computer connectivity mode before plugging it in.
Plug a device into a USB port of the computer and maintain the connectivity throughout the test.
Provide continuous power to the device throughout the test.
Troubleshoot device installation by checking if the device is installed successfully in Device Manager or by looking at the SetupAPI device installation logs.
