Maximus-Decim Native USB Drivers

804 posts in this topic

Hi Maximus,

That is a master-piece!!

Just would like to feedback to you, that it should be allowed to unplug the USB drive after right-click the drive in Windows Explorer and in the drop-down menu then click Eject. When we do that, your driver will come up with "Unsafe Removal of Device" popup. Would be great if this can be corrected.

Thanks to sunamigaza for the SUBSTOR.INF.

Unfortunately there is no reply from Maximus regarding the possibility of using "Eject" as described in my message above.

Has someone else any idea?

Anytime, Wijono.

AFAIK, on Windows 98SE using drivers from USB Disk vendors:

- when running Windows Explorer or double-clicking My Computer there'll be an

icon "Removable Disk" then right-clicking it will open pop-down menu which

lists i.e. "Eject" to remove USB Disk. (CMIIW)

- the eject icon (if) appears mostly only once on the System Tray when plug-in

USB Disk for the first time (CMIIW), if the USB Disk removed that icon gone.

If replug-in USB Disk that icon won't re-appear (however, the USB Disk still

working and have to use "Windows Explorer...Eject..." steps to remove USB

Disk) unless re-booting.

Since NUSB22 from M.Decim uses some of WinMe files:

- the above function of "Eject" is replaced by the icon "Unplug or eject

hardware" on the System Tray to remove USB Disk.

Therefore the above steps (Windows Explorer...Eject...) seems inapplicable

coz a pop-up menu will give a warning "Unsafe removal..." and suggesting to

use the icon "Unplug or eject hardware" on the System Tray instead.

- and that icon always appears each time re-plug USB Disk, no need rebooting.

[Win Me/XP style. :) Dunno of Win2k, any1 knows pls info]

PS: add 3 new lines in USBSTOR.INF, pls have a look into Readme.txt in the

revised Readme.zip

Hope this might help.

Hi

Recently i bought a camera: Sony Cyber-Shot 3.2 Mega Pixels DSC-P32.

With Windows XP, the camera was recognize, but on Windows 98 was not recognized.

So i tried to install Maximus Decim Native USB ver.2.2.

But nothing changed, The same message appear, "searching for a driver"

post-51485-1126565560_thumb.png

I would like to know if it's possible Win98 recognize the camera like WinXP.

Just a curiosity; Is it necessary to have SYSTRAY.EXE file in windows\system?

Hi folks...

I have two USB 2.0 devices: an ADS enclosure (housing a DVD drive) and a Maxtor One Touch II. The problem is that they can not seem to co-exist in Win98SE. Tech support for ADS suggested that both devices may be trying to access the same driver, causing my system to hang.

Would the Maximus Decim Native USB ver.2.2 solve this conflict? Any other work around?

Thanks... :)

Hiya All,

Would it be possible to use/adapt this package for Win95 OSR2.5B with the usb support add-on?

I'm rolling out a bunch of legacy PCs and this would be really useful.

Thanks for your time.

maximus-decim, do you plan to update the original 2.2 installer with this new INF?

it would be great and easier to deploy if an updated installer is available.

Yet will not be, later. The structure of the usbstor.inf for reduction of its size will be changed. New devices will be still added.

Thanks to Maximus.

Works great ! (The USB patch included in SP 1.6.2. was poor) :)

Does it support USB 2 also ? (I can't test it becasue of lack of HW)

I managed to get the patch working without adding any of the registry entries that are normally added by the installer, into a ghost image of Win98SE. Now, it's a whole lot easier getting Win98SE systems up and running, with the mortified ghost image... erm, modified.

A fix for hotplug icon missing from system tray:

After installing the USB update, my USB flash drive was recognized, but no hotplug icon appeared in the system tray.

In the registry branch

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CV\Applets\SysTray

HotPlugFlags = 0x00000002

Services = 0x0000000d

The fix was to edit the Services key to 0x0000000f.

It looks like the bits in the Services value specify which icons appear in the system tray.

0x0000000d = binary 1101

0x0000000f = binary 1111

The 2nd last bit probably controls the hotplug icon.

Clicking the hotplug icon activates Hotplug.dll

Maximus - perhaps the Services value could be set up accordingly in the nusb installation script.

I help in the school of handicaped teenagers and would like to istall your USB PATCH on school computers since lots of students carry their seminars on USB drives. The computers are still running Win98 since the school won't allow budget for new compos.

But the problem is that they are all running Win98 SE SLOVENIAN EDITION. What would happen if I installed your USB patch which is only for ENGLISH version of windows?

Tanx in advance

Hi everyone,

Just joined the forum and found this wonderful proggie. Thanks Maximus!

1) Hotplug Icon Missing

---------------------------

The Hotplug icon did not appear on my system tray

even after trying iscove's suggestion to edit the registry key in

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CV\Applets\SysTray

Services = 0x0000000d

I discovered that, for some reason, the volume icon has to be turned on

in order for the hotplug icon to appear on the system tray.

The last bit turns on the power icon, the second last the hotplug icon,

the 3rd last the volume icon, so just set the 2nd and 3rd last bit of the

Services key to 1 and it'll be fine,

i.e. set the key as any one of the following:

Services = 0x0000000e

or

Services = 0x0000000f

The first will turn on both the volume and the hotplug icon

and the second the power, volume and hotplug icon.

Alternatively, simply go to Control Panel, Multimedia and

check "Show volume control on the taskbar".

Reboot and plug in a USB mass storage device and viola! The hotplug icon appears.

2) Sony PlayStation Portable

---------------------------------

I edited my USBSTOR.INF file as follows and Win98 recognizes my PSP! :)

[Microsoft]

;Sony

%VID_054C&PID_01C8.DD%=USBSTOR_BULK,USB\VID_054C&PID_01C8

[strings]

;Sony

VID_054C&PID_01C8.DD="Sony PSP"

Try it out. It should work unless there are different PIDs for different PSP models.

Hi! :hello:

Just a question. Why does the package susbstitute user.exe. My Windows version is not English so I don't want the user.exe included in the pack. May I change it to the original version after installing the package?

Cheers.
