i guess, i could try helping out with that.
so DCs support both USB and COM ports?

if so this will mean that we have to go trough the list of USB drives,
find any known labels such as "UEMISSDA" (from a static table) add
them to the combo. then also grab the list of COM ports from the
registry and add them as well.

such lists will look like:

is this the correct logic?
i already have test code that does the above, but hopefully a single
combo box with multiple device types will not be confusing.
