Maximus-Decim Native USB Drivers

Recommended Posts

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 ??

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

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

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].

HTH

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 The USB ID Database under http://listing.driveragent.com/usb/ is probably out of date.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.
