I was wondering if anyone had any good sites that will show how to use C++ for USB, Serial, and PCI devices. I can't seem to find how to do much in C++ with this? Thanks :)

Presumably by 'use C++ for' you mean you want to communicate with such devices using the C++ language. How you do this is OS specific and may involve writing a driver. I'd need more details (i.e. OS, what you're trying to accomplish etc) before I can give you more info.

What sort of device? Windows has drivers for certain classes of USB devices. If your device is one of those you don't need to write a driver, you can use the regular APIs which will in turn use the pre-supplied drivers.

If it's some custom hardware you'll need to write a driver that exposes it to a Win32 API.
