Wireless USB hub python programming

P: 32
So this new wireless USB hub from Belkin is coming out very soon its date is mid December, so soon, but I was wondering if anyone knew how I could write a program in python or could you possibly do it for me which would tell the computer to extract the images from the camera automatically to the computer once it it plugged into the usb hub. How the usb hub works is, there is a hub and a flash drive dongle looking thing, which is hooked up into a computers USB port. Now what will be done is the camera will be hooked up into the hub a distance away and it will be recognized on the computer b/c signals will be sent to the dongle and the camera will appear on the computer. Next the images can be extracted manually, but I was wondering if anyone knew how to write a program that would tell the computer as soon as the camera is connected into the hub and appears connected on the computer to automatically download all the pictures into a folder on the computers hard drive without me having to go to the computer personally and do it manually?

I don't understand what this does? It didn't have much of a good description on the website, but the person who makes me the program isn't going empty handed...I am willing to pay someone to create it.

There may be someone willing to do that, but it's pretty hard to arrange. Mostly, this is help forum so, after you come up with a rough draft, you can get help fine tuning your work. I believe that the point of using python for any project on your computer is that you can create a program without being a professional programmer. If you want to pay for software, I'm sure that the are commercial tools available.

well could and would you help me out on how to get started and what I need to do? Basically can you help me write a program that will extract all images from the digital camera once it is hooked up into the USB port of my computer not the USB hub?
