I think you're right but my only problem is that i'm not sure prism54
driver support my hardware. My device is not listed as supported one and
if the prism54 driver is based idVendor and idProduct it could be not
work. I don't know how to know the chip in it ? And as far as i
understand prism54 driver is also based on firmware (*.arm file) and i
can't find this kind of file in my windows installation. So this could
be work for none ...
