While using a USB Drive most people must have observed that BSOD(Blue Screen Of Death) show up if the memory usage is high. Simple USB Logger is a free tool that monitors all traffic data of the USB Drive. This can help users who want to determine what problem is occurring in a situation which then further helps in pinpointing the exact problem.
It not only shows the traffic data, but also helps you monitor both real USB and virtual USB drives. It can also show the complete structure of the USB Drive in full form or basic form. During BSOD it saves the data and then later lets you analyze Memory Dump, which further shows which latest file was accessed before your computer crashed. If you want to search for a specific packet, it has a build-in quick search feature as well.
When you start the application it will ask you to select sessions that you want to monitor. You can choose between Hardware USB Hibs, Virtual USB Hubs, or both. There is also an option to capture BULK transfer and ISO Transfer without data buffer.
Here is how the main window looks like. Notice that there are three windows, to analyze the traffic, see full information of the USB drive, and the Rav Type View.

This can be useful for developers too who are looking to create a portable application and as well as users who want to pinpoint the problem.
It works on Windows XP, Windows Server 2003/2008, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Enjoy!
