See more: C# Keyboard USB/HID
I have a usb cardreader that is recognized by my PC like a keyboard. I wrote a small app to read the data from the card, but it doesn't work I dont get any data in my filestrteam. I was wondering if the hid class works for keyboard like devices.

Yes, see, for instance HID at Wikipedia[^].

CPallini Do you have any idea, why reading the card using the hid doesn't work for me. My device gets detected but I cannot read it, Filestream.BeginRead() doesn't get any data so it never returns ant the callback doesn't get hit.

I did the reading with raw input and it works fine.

Nope, I suppose you should contact the device manufacturer.
