FYI, it is easily possible to "listen in" on the transactions between
a USB device and Windows using interposing drivers and data capture
tools you can download on the net.

You can therefore run such a device under windows and get ALL the
control information that goes back and forth to the device, which
makes reverse engineering and doing a driver much much easier.
