Get the time and date from the USB Host controller

Hi all,

Is there is a way by which a device connected via USB can get the time and date from the USB Host controller?

There is a constraint, the device when it get connected should not install any extra drivers at PC side(generic drivers okay). And there should not be any need for any application to be running in PC side to complish the above mentioned task.

With Thanks & Regards,
A.Ilamparithi.

No. The USB host controller does not know the date and time. You’ll
need a driver and/or an application.
