    USB data receiving


    Hi,

    Imagine i have 3 devices each one connect by usb, and they are sending information continuously.
    Now, i've got 3 threads, one for each port, to deal with the information i receive.

    Is it possible that i may loose some bytes?
    If some, is there any way to make this a little more "real time"?

    thank you

    hello and welcome!

    Without any further information (about the device itself and how much data it is capable of sending to the host, etc.), I would say that you are probably fine. Does each device have its own dedicated connection to a physical USB port on the computer, or are they all sharing a single USB port via a USB hub?
