Why doesn't receive callback get called CubeMX 4.20.1

Hi All,

I am new to this community so please bare with me.  I am developing a USB GPS application using STM32F4, CubeMX (4.20.1) and Keil uVison 5.  Using CubeMX I created a USB Host skeleton and succeeded in getting the device to enumerate as a CDC device.  After many hours I came up with a solution that works (sort of) but would like to ask if this is the correct way to acheive the desired result.


First I had to expose Appli_state flag (extern  ApplicationTypeDef Appli_state) in main.c in order to determine that enumeration had completed. In the while() loop following MX_USB_HOST_Process() I placed

        if(Appli_state == APPLICATION_READY) {
          USBH_CDC_Receive(&hUsbHostFS, UsbRxBuf, 64);

          printf("%s", UsbRxBuf);   

This resulted in data coming through, however, the USBH_CDC_ReceiveCallback(USBH_HandleTypeDef *phost) did not fire to tell me that data transfer had completed and allow me to put the printf() elsewhere.  Without putting delays in the call to USBH_CDC_Receive() I am getting duplicated data, i.e. old data still in the buffer.


The reason for the callback NOT being fired is in usbh_cdc.c:


static void CDC_ProcessReception(USBH_HandleTypeDef *phost)

        USBH_BulkReceiveData (phost,
    CDC_Handle->data_rx_state = CDC_RECEIVE_DATA_WAIT;


At the completion of the CDC_RECEIVE_DATA case the state machines next intended destination was CDC_RECEIVE_DATA_WAIT: as below but it never got there.

        URB_Status = USBH_LL_GetURBState(phost, CDC_Handle->DataItf.InPipe);

    /*Check the status done for reception*/
    if(URB_Status == USBH_URB_DONE )
      length = USBH_LL_GetLastXferSize(phost, CDC_Handle->DataItf.InPipe);
      if(((CDC_Handle->RxDataLength - length) > 0) && (length > CDC_Handle->DataItf.InEpSize))
        CDC_Handle->RxDataLength -= length ;
        CDC_Handle->pRxData += length;
        CDC_Handle->data_rx_state = CDC_RECEIVE_DATA;
        CDC_Handle->data_rx_state = CDC_IDLE;

I suspect the problem may be related to the nature of the GPS device sending a continuous stream of characters but can anyone explain or suggest a better (proper) method.  I should note that all searching I have done on the web mentions a source file (usb_cdc_if.c) which does not get generated by the current version of CubeMX.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
