Before anything, apply KB240075 UHCD.SYS hotfix and see whether that solves your problem. If that's not enough, then try adding it's VID and PID to usbstor.inf.

Take your pick of a Disk Imaging Software. Boot from a floppy or CD (can be from the CD that has the imaging software) and make a full system partition image. If you happen to have both system and data in the same partition, then image it all. In case anything goes wrong, redeploy the image. You have to create the image of your system before adding anything else, in order to be on the safe side.

It should install OK, on your system, as it is.

You don't need to. But you might want to. In any case, you can do it after installing nusb. Or you can do it before installing nusb. It's indifferent.

"Foolproof" instructions for this driver? ;) I'm fixing up an olde Compaq Armada 7380DMT* (I don't have a USB card for it) and writing what I hope are user-proof instructions for various things. Here's what I did for this USB driver.

Feel free to copy, modify, add to, remove from, fold, spindle, mutilate, translate into Farsi...

*This laptop dates from 1999, quite possibly the last laptop series ever *without* built in USB. Strange of Compaq to not have USB on these when others had it at least as early as 1997.

1. Obtain a Cardbus USB card with Windows 98 Second Edition drivers.

2. Follow its instructions for installing its drivers.

3. DO NOT install any drivers for your USB Mass Storage devices.

3. Run nusb33e.exe to install universal USB Mass Storage drivers.

All USB Mass Storage devices such as external hard drives, thumb/pen drives, floppy drives, audio/video players, digital cameras and cell phones with drive/disk/mass storage mode should work, as long as the filesystem is FAT16 or FAT32.

In other words, if you can plug it into WinMe, 2000, XP or Vista and use it like a disk drive *without* having to install a driver, it *should* work in 98SE with this driver.

If not, go here. http://www.msfn.org/board/maximus-decim-na...ers-t43605.html

This driver DOES NOT SUPPORT non-storage devices such as scanners, printers, tablets, cameras/phones that *don't* have a drive/disk/mass storage mode, or any other device that doesn't act like a disk drive.

If it is a storage device and requires a driver for WinMe, 2000, XP or Vista, it won't work with this driver in 98SE. (Note that some storage devices may have drivers/utilities for features other than basic storage support that does not require a driver to be installed.)

This USB driver is only for the ENGLISH version of 98SE. See the above forum link for versions for other languages. If there's not one for your 98SE's language, ask nicely and someone there may be able to fix you up.

Why this driver instead of installing individual drivers for every camera, drive and phone? Multiple USB Mass Storage drivers use up room on your hard drive, use more RAM, add more bloat to the Registry and can cause conflicts with each other.

Additional note for media with a formatted capacity of less than 32 megabytes (includes media with exactly 32 meg unformatted capacity). Windows 2000 and XP will format such media as FAT12. Windows Me and 98SE with this driver will format such media as FAT16. It's best to never format 32meg or smaller media with 2000 or XP, especially when it's the non-removable memory in a device.

I am looking for info on whether it is possible to get the device names to appear in Explorer instead of just "Removable Disk". I tried to edit the obvious .inf but nothing has changed. Any info on how to do this?

I ask because some devices mount as multiple disks and it's hard to distinguish them. Thanks.

What is a "native USB driver," as opposed to any other kind of USB driver?

Native means, as the name implies, built-in USB driver support without the the need for installation of additional drivers for each type of USB device being used.

I've run into a problem with this wonderful driver package.

After I install it, my USB network adapters stop working.

I have a Win98 FE machine that has all of its PCI slots full. Installing the USB Driver makes usb flash drives work, but the ntkern.vxd included doesn't work with either my linksys usb200m or a d-link of similar fashion. Neither device loads and the problem goes away when I use sfc to restore ntkern.vxd... but then flash drives don't load.

Is there a solution to this? Thanks for the support over the years! Just having this ability is awesome. :)

Oh yeah -- as a note, this machine is connected to a domain, if that makes a difference.

Have you installed the correct package for Win98FE?

NUSB3.3 is for 98SE and NUSB3.2 is for 98FE. See post#350 in this thread by PassingBy, the creator of the 98FE version.

Thanks for the reply. I did make sure to download the FE package yesterday, so I'm pretty confident that I got the right one. Further, it did actually work -- it let me plug in a USB mass storage device which I could read/write to.

It's just that the USB network adapters stop working, and I need 'em. :)

@jrronimo

This problem may have surfaced on a previous occasion with NUSB98FE3.2 if you read post #455 in this thread. Sadly no one then posted any suggestion on how to cure that problem.

There are a small number of 98FE users here, perhaps one of them may pick up on your problem.
