...but meanwhile, this whole discussion is moot because you haven't
actually tried it with USB, have you?  You qualify your statements as
something akin to "I haven't tried it, but it probably won't work" but
I don't see anything convincing me it won't work, just that you're too
much of a stick in the mud on this issue to give it a try.
