I have been trying different approches to accessing mass storage 
flash memory cards via the SCSIPASSTHROUGH layer under windows. I was
able to issue the reduced instruction scsi command set with a windows
DeviceIoControl() call. The main problem is finding information on how
Microsoft merged the usb mass storage interface to the scsi routines.
