    How would you find out the VID & PID for an interal micro SD card reader (HP Microserver)? Without hiding it the unit does not sleep, but no way to plug it into another PC to get these ID’s

        yes…. my point is how to find out the values for the card reader when its on board and the only OS is synology. Is there an app to identify it?

    Well I had windows in my machine before and looked it up, I think the values are the same as long as it’s the same system, I can check mine tomorrow
