It implements support for the Mass Storage Device class.

It should work with all  compatible  mass  storage  devices  -  disk,
memory  sticks,  all  sorts  of  memory  cards  interfaced  through a
compatible card reader, etc.  Note  that  not  all  devices  actually
follow the USB specs, so some of this simple don't work.
