How can I develop drivers of new peripherals for BB

For example, I want to use a special SD card on my BB or a special USB peripheral connect to my BB. I want to use some special functionalities on them but can not find APIs for them.

 

So my question is how can I modify or add drivers for them?

Do I need to contract RIM? If yes, how? and who might be able to help me on it?

 

Thank you!

Haven't you already asked exactly the same question here:

I'm sure if you have a solid business case for providing this sort of integration, then RIM will listen to you.  However I don't see that myself.  Can you explain why using the USB or connecting via the SD Card would be a better solution than Bluetooth?
