Firmware you found was most likely too short. Binary file size should
be about 3.3K. Take a look at http://rafb.net/p/0t085M48.html

Line "000439:  OUT: 000001 ms 000439 ms 40 22 01 00 69 ff 00 00 >>>" is
the important one here that you need to find in order to verify that
you havent missed anything. I think m920_sp_parse one bug that prevents
it from generating proper file when reading from usbsnoop. Anyway, let
me know when you find a dump with either 69ff(usbsnoop uses
different byte ordering) or ff69.

Used components can be identified by looking at usb dumps. You can also
open your device if you wish. Though, we will need some logs anyway.
