I know that it is possible to read the registry files on a windows system and find out the details of a USB storage device that was inserted in the system. This can be done by reading HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB from the registry.

Now, my question - Is it possible to find the exact time stamp of when a particular storage device was inserted on a windows system (Windows 7 to be specific) by reading registry values? If yes, then how can we do that?

Is using a third party tool acceptable? Try nirsoft.net/utils/usb_log_view.html –  NewProgrammerJames Oct 25 '13 at 20:05
    
No, without using a third party tool, if possible. –  Rahil Arora Oct 25 '13 at 20:34
