I have installed Wireshark 3.05 and USBPcap on a Windows 10 machine (Version 10.0.18362.418) to sniff some USB communication from devices. Wireshark shows me three USBPcap interfaces after start:

Interface 1 and 2 give me results like this

But I get some sort of changing data after starting interface 3.

So I want to sniff the communication with my USB mouse (Logitech G5). I checked the device manager for the VIDs of the mouse devices and set the filter in Wireshark

But Wireshark doesn´t list any input from that mouse. I got the same result when I try the second mouse from the device manager.

So what is going wrong here?

Have you tried with a filter of just usb.idVendor to check for any packets with that field?

This sample capture usb_u3v_sample.pcapng on the Wireshark Wiki has one packet that matches the filter.

Also the capture mentioned in this Ask Wireshark question has one packet that matches.
