Maximus-Decim Native USB Drivers

804 posts in this topic

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.

PS: I have Windows 98 not 98SE. Will that work ??

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

are some of the new files changing the language, if they are not localized versions?

http://rapidshare.com/files/18379200/nusb30da.exe.htmll updated, forgot to replace english hotplug.dll

Here's my try of a danish versions of 3.0. It should be working perfectly unless any of the new files in localized versions are required.

French Version 3.0 available

You've got to be kidding me ! Nusb 3.0 in french since two days ago? :blink:

I just spent hours translating it... s*** !

Well, guess now there are two localizations around...

You might still wanna try mine if you need to keep user.exe and so on as french versions : download at rapidshare.com

Anyway. Thanks Matze for your (fast) translation.

I have tested NUSB 3.0 English with a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 1 GB stick:

http://www.sandisk.com/Products/Item(1919)...Black__New.aspx

It did not work properly [yellow exclamation sign in Device Manager] until I replaced USBSTOR.SYS 5.00.2195.6655 with USBSTOR.SYS 4.90.3000.1 from Windows ME setup CD-ROM [found in BASE2.CAB].

Oldies goodies? Or specific affair? First version: normal NUSB 3.0 and version NUSB 3.0 for SanDisk1GB?

@jaclaz

Thanks for all the information. The USB ID Database under http://listing.driveragent.com/usb/ is probably out of date. There is a very recent version in a German pdf, which is available for download at

http://www.kilonca.de/download/DeviceGuard_Handbuch_de.pdf

View pages 37-43. "VID_1516" can be found on page 42 - and, yes, you were right, it actually is "Skymedi Corporation"!

So the corresponding entries in USBSTOR.INF should be:

[Manufacturer]

%Skymedi.Mfg%=Skymedi

[skymedi]

%USB\VID_1516&PID_8628.DeviceDesc%=USBSTOR_BULK,USB\VID_1516&PID_8628

[strings]

Skymedi.Mfg="Skymedi"

USB\VID_1516&PID_8628.DeviceDesc="Skymedi USB Mass Storage Drive"

I suppose only the controller is made by Skymedi. Only a few hours ago I read that their controllers do not support as many third party memory chips (Samsung, etc.) as many others. And I found a posting by somebody, whose "VID_1516" USB stick does not work under Linux. My impression is that Skymedi is probably rather a low-cost manufacturer. Or they are still exercising, as they have been founded only four years ago...

Edit: I corrected one of the entries above and used Skymedi's denomination ("Skymedi USB Mass Storage Drive").

What are you talking about? Could you be more specific, please?

I borrowed a friend's USB stick [sanDisk Cruzer Micro 1 GB], and tried to install it using NUSB 3.0 English released by Maximus-Decim on February 21 2007 [newest available version] on my tweaked Win98 SE OS [with 98SE2ME already installed].

Never installed SanDisk drivers and never had any USB or USB 2.0 sticks installed previously.

To make it work, I had to replace Win2004 USBSTOR.SYS 5.00.2195.6655 installed by NUSB 3.0 with older WinME USBSTOR.SYS 4.90.3000.1 from WinME setup CD-ROM CAB.

That's it.

@Pirates

Thank a lot for the link to the .pdf. :)

Strangely enough, it refers to this page:

http://www.usb.org/developers/tools

as source of the info, the "Company List" file "usb.if" , apart having "peculiar" separators appears to be made in decimal values :blink: rather than in hex.

Thus you won't find "1516" in it, unless you import it in an a spreadsheet and convert dec to hex, and besides the list is ordered the "wrong" way (using dec numbers as they were text).

I guess the info contained in the usb.if is "Public" so that if I attach here a .zip file containing the data in a spreadsheet, with hex conversion and ordered BOTH as Vid and alphabetically, easily searchable, it would be ok.

On the page there is the recommendation to always download latest usb.if because " this list changes almost daily" but I guess that with this file one can consider himself "reasonably" updated.

I'll think about making a small batch conversion tool to .csv....

EDIT:

Ok, done, it can be found here:

http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=1659

(unfortunately for all diehard Win9x users it requires Win2k/XP)

About the entries in .inf file, do download the 98 driver from Valgear:

http://www.valgear.com/WIN98/PD1-SK6201.rar

and get them from there.
