Done. But please note there appears to be a problem with the usbstor.sys file. I needed to replace it with an older version (4.90.3000.1) before USB sticks would work. The one supplied with NUSB 3.0 (5.00.2195.6655) did *not* work. (Have 98SE2ME and 98SESP2 installed)

I'm sorry but I don't have the time to read through 13 thread pages. I have a Kingston U3 flash memory device and a Sandisk Sansa m230 mp3 player. None of them support Windows 98 and I need to get either of them to work on that; preferably the Kingston memory. I found a link to this thread on another forum; they said I could find a basic driver on the 1st post of this thread. I tried that, but the link doesn't work. It says "file not found". Quickly looking through the pages of this thread, I found several other links posted and I have no time to read what they're all about, so if someone please could help me or provide me a link to a basic driver for use of my devices for simple storage, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Try the link I posted in the post before yours....

http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php

The drivers should work, so long as you have Windows 98SE

Thank you, but I have Windows 98 not 98SE. Will it work or not ? Also, is it possible that this driver will do some damage to the device ? Could it affect it in any way or is it safe to try ?? Thanks.

Can someone please answer this ?

@toxic_97

MOST probably it won't work. :(

But rest assured, no software can damage a device, though it may "damage" your windows install.

If the question is "is it possible to make USB sticks working in win98 FE ?", the answer is probably yes, but I would guess that since you "don't have the time to read through 13 thread pages", you will have also not enough time to actually try learning and experimenting to (possibly) do it.

There is a common replacement for "time" that is called "money", you can find someone and pay him for the time needed to develop such a solution, or I guess it's easier to search on e-bay or wherever for someone selling a Win98SE CD and license.

the driver works quite good, except for the fact that i receive a bsod after removing my (usb-2.0-) memory stick. however to see it working (i.e. reading and writing) is a huge improvement, since before my system would crash upon inserting :)

is this a known bug or simply incompatible with my hardware (via kt800, socket 754)?

Did you stop the device before removing? I'm asking because XP doesn't complain when removing devices directly but in 98/ME/2k you need to stop them first using the system tray icon, and if you do not do that, in Windows 98, you'll get a BSOD.

Phew! Second the opinion on [not] rapidshare. But, hey, thanks to maximus-decim for the great job he's doing!

BTW what did wdmstub.sys do or otherwise to warrant its removal?

Instructions say to uninstall current usb drivers. I have a Jumpdrive Trio that is working just fine under win98 (takes SMS, SD, XD), and one of those frustrating valgear GXT usb keys (GXT-64MB-PD to be exact) that won't work in win98. Does this mean I have to rip out my good trio drivers, or can I just supplement them with the NUSB install?

Thanks

I just installed NUSB 3.0e last week. It works great. It is even faster than the original driver for my Kingston DTII. It detects faster and I can unplug the thumb drive without worrying that the computer will hang when shut down. Great job Maximus Decim. Thanks.

Now, what should I expect from NUSB 3.1e?

Hey there MD, been using NUSB for a while now and its great! Thanks ...

However, it would be excellent to have the installer package behave like other MS hotfixes, ie if you use the /Q:A /R:N switch, the installer shouldn't prompt to reboot. When i first tried 3.0 out it seemed to work as expected. But when i use it inside Auto-Patcher within the batch script, the reboot prompt appears (i'm assuming 3.1 does the same). I've made my own installer to get around this, but just letting you know that this is happening and that at the moment i'm packaging my own version of NUSB31 for inclusion in AP.

Hope that's OK ... sop.

EDIT: actually i'm still having problems, my installer is doing the same thing --- i can't seem to be able to create an unattended installer -- is this by design? I understand that the reboot has to occur at some point, and i am coding the update to install by itself and immediately reboot but it seems its not enough

... is there something in the INF file i can change to stop the reboot prompt?

To force automatic reboot [without prompt most of the time] from INF:

[Version]

Signature=$CHICAGO$

AdvancedINF=2.5

[DefaultInstall]

UpdateInis=WX

SmartReboot=AS

Reboot=1

[DefaultUninstall]

UpdateInis=WX

SmartReboot=AS

Reboot=1

[WX]

WININIT.INI,Rename,,"NUL=%10%\WININIT.LOG"

WININIT.INI,Rename,,"DIRNUL=%31%\_RESTORE\TEMP"

To force automatic reboot [without prompt most of the time] from SED:

[Options]
