You don't need a hardware reader. You need a device which has a camera (a tablet, a mobile phone, a pc with a webcam,...).
ZXing decodes barcodes from images.

The above one not working for Windows phone 8.1 bcs it has different API compare with windows phone 8.

But i want to use a USB barcode scanner. Which has been tested with Zxing?

No one was tested with ZXing because ZXing is an image processing library.
An USB scanner acts in most cases like a virtual keyboard. You shouldn't need ZXing.
