        My company sells a USB barcode scanner that acts as a USB HID keyboard (scanning a barcode types the barcode value). It does not require any additional software to be installed as it behaves as a keyboard. We've been selling them for about 14 years and haven't had any compatibility issues until now. It works with every operating system we've encountered except for El Capitan. Connecting the scanner shows these messages in Console:

        The device will scan a barcode but nothing is typed and the scanner stops responding until it is disconnected and reconnected. This behavior occurs in OS X 10.11.1 beta 2 (15B22c) and the final OS X 10.11 (15A284). It looks like Apple rewrote the USB stack/APIs in 10.11, which wasn't supposed to break anything but did:

         

        https://developer.apple.com/library/mac/releasenotes/Darwin/RN_USB/Articles/10_11Changes.html

         

        Has anyone else seen this kind of behavior? Are there any workarounds?

          I am having the exact same issue with a barcode scanner of the model DataLogic Gryphon D432 SB3952.

           

          "System Information" returns the following:

           

          Datalogic Bar Code Scanner:

          When plugging it in, Console spits of these lines:

          At first, I assumed it was related to the new System Integrity Protection feature introduced in El Capitan, however disabling this did not help.

           

          The symptoms are the say as described above, the scanner seems to connect fine and is able to scan barcodes, but it doesn't actually produce any output on screen as it used to do in Yosemite.

            I am also seeing problem after upgrading to 10.11 with one of my HID devices. It's a composite USB device (mouse and keyboard).

            OSX is able to connect the mouse part of the device but the keyboard fails and enumeration continue to infinity (row 16-27 repeats).

            Something is definitely changed.

                same issue here, already reported it with no response

                i my case this is another device: vendorid: 0x0111 productid: 0x0111 (unitech ms146 professional bar code reader)

                manufacturer advised us to roll back to yousemite, which we cannot do, dough...

                  Same problem. https://discussions.apple.com/message/29034567

                  Maybe someone have kexts or something?

                    I have same issue with my 3rd party external keyboard.

                     

                    After updating to El Capitan, the keyboard is no longer working.

                     

                    The symptom is something like below:

                     

                    - Before the OS boot, the keyboard is working (you know this because 'Caps lock' is working and ALT(Option) key is working for boot selection).

                    - Once the OS is fully boot up, the keyboard is not working anymore

                    - From System report you will see the keyboard is still recognized

                    - Difference between working one / none working was (from the system report, in my case) that working one has USB Speed of 1.5Mb/Sec, while non-working one has 12Mb/Sec

                    - The system.log will report following Error when keyboard is connected:

                    - Apple support will keep saying 'contact your keyboard vendor'. They even reject to open internal ticket for Dev investigation.

                     

                    If someone from Apple support is monitoring this forum please engage your dev and have them take a look into this simple but annoying issue.
