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.

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.

Well done and thanks for the spreadsheet... :) I guess your batch file will probably be even more useful in the future. I also noticed that link, and usb.if reminded me of a .csv file, too. But I had no clue, why "1516" was untraceable in it, so I regarded it as useless due to its mysterious format :blink:.

Today I had a conversation with CnMemory's support. I thought it would perhaps be useful for Maximus' NUSB, if I could figure out the PIDs of the other three Skymedi/CnMemory USB sticks (512MB, 2GB, 4GB), so the whole "Core" product line could be supported by NUSB, not only the 1GB version.

The employee I had on the phone claimed that he had successfully tested all four "Core" sticks (512MB, 1GB, 2GB and 4GB) in conjunction with Windows 98 SE and NUSB24/NUSB30... As I confirmed, that it had not worked for me, he said it would sometimes also depend on ones USB controller, respectively its driver. I cannot deny that, since I am still using an old VIA USB 1.1 Controller (+VIA Hyperion 4.47 +USB 1.1 Filter Patch 1.10 and otherwise it is working fine). But he also told that CnMemory's "Core" sticks are inconsistently equipped with chips from three different manufacturers :wacko:. What a mess :realmad:. That means the sticks he had tested might possibly be essentially different from mine, although all belong to the same product line. So no conclusion is possible at all.

I don't want to test the latest VIA Hyperion Drivers, since VIA themselves do not recommend them for Windows 98 machines and older chipsets

( http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageI...&CatID=1110 ).

Also, I actually don't need a USB 2.0 controller at the moment (except for testing). So if here is somebody, who has a stick with a VID_1516 and a PID_8628 (can be found within Win 98 SE's registry, after it was once successfully attached) and had it working with Windows 98 SE and NUSB24 (or prior) without any additional entries in usbstor.inf: SHOUT. :P

These sticks are most likely concerned:

1) CnMemory "Core" line,

2) ValGear "GXT" line.

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)

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.
