    Hi guys,
    hope it's nice weekend for all.

    I'm working in my project it's about "LCD network cable tester", but I want to add a usb port to be able to connect a flash memory and save the test result in a excel format (.xlsx) or .txt

    is there any idea or info can help ?!
    thank you very much for all your support and help I learned a lot :D

    Your PIC do not have a USB master port. So that is not an easy task. Is this nice to have or need to have in your project?

    it's nice and added feature but not required.
    IS there any idea or advise to add this feature? OR I have to use another PIC

    Equivalent of 16F877 but with USB it is PIC18F4550

    All the pins are the same except the ones for USB...

    But for in order to write a USB memory stick. You must have a PIC that can work as USB master. That will not the latter 18F chip be able to do. As it is only a slave type USB
