Maximus-Decim Native USB Drivers

Recommended Posts

For those of you that like to follow my way but do not have access to WinXP, I attached herewith that small USBSTOR.INF to try (at your own risk though).

Could we implement this method into the official NUSB release?

Sure you can use it with the NUSB from Maximus-Decim.

BTW, NUSB is an UNOFFICIAL patch.

I know NSUB is unofficial as in not from Microsoft, but it also a great update, which is easy for noobs to install.

Maybe should make a similar patch using this method.

Plug in your USB storage device, open “Device Manager”, expand “Disk drives”, click to select your “USB Flash Disk”, click “Properties”. Then click “Settings” tab, down below under the “Reserved drive letters” enter the driver letter you want, for example H: for the “Start drive letter” and “End drive letter”. Click “OK” to close the “Device Manager”, next time you plug in that device again, it will be drive H: (for this example).

The logical step to enable the detection of as many as possible USB devices is to add the VID and PID of new devices into the USBSTOR.INF, but doing so will quickly fill up the 64 kB limit that Win98SE can handle INF files. In spite of using abbreviation “DD” instead of “DeviceDesc”, Maximus-Decim has reached 62 kB in his NUSB 2.2.1!

To work around it I use another approach as it is done in WinXP. Most of the USB storage devices, such as flash disk, thumbdrive etc. are compatible to the generic driver, hence for the detection of those kinds of devices I rely on the following lines in the USBSTOR.INF:

.......

We need to specify the VID and PID only for the devices that do not fall into that generic category, e.g., digital camera, USB IDE Hard Drive and so on. With that done, we can have a small USBSTOR.INF of only 17 kB, giving ample of space to add those non-generic devices.

USBSTOR.INF can be reduced to an even smaller size [15 KB], by deleting unnecessary spaces and quotes.

Please see attached...

I think I'll be pulling the download for W9xPP, since there's been a bunch of various updates since release, and I had included 3 separate files for this single addon. (NUSB v2.21, NUSB Decorator, and mdgx's unofficial v2.22 patch).

Good work, Maximus-Decim! Thanks again!

Maximus Decim Native USB ver.2.3

I had v. 2.2 up to now and all devices did work for me, up to 1 GB. :)

Minor problem: for some of them confirming the driver is required,

few clicks, but found automatically, no private drivers.

This thing needs a better webhost: it is too small and to good for

rapidshare !!! :yes:

The program nusb23e still doesn’t work with my PQI 1 Gig memory stick, although it works with my other sticks.

The technical data for the memory stick is as follows

Device Descriptor:

bcdUSB: 0x0200

bDeviceClass: 0x00

bDeviceSubClass: 0x00

bDeviceProtocol: 0x00

bMaxPacketSize0: 0x40 (64)

idVendor: 0x3538

idProduct: 0x0042

bcdDevice: 0x0100

iManufacturer: 0x01

iProduct: 0x02

iSerialNumber: 0x03

bNumConfigurations: 0x01

The fact that the standard Windows ME/XP drivers work with this device would indicate that the Maximum-Decim USB driver can still be improved so that it will work with any USB memory stick and be truly universal.

Can I just run the latest NUSB if I've installed the earlier version and separately patched systray?
