Hi
I am glad to find this forum! I have been looking for a generic usb driver for Win98se and was certainly overjoyed to find the MaximumDecim USB driver.

I have downloaded and it works for the Palm T5 in drive mode ! great stuff and thanks to you Maximum Decim!

I am encountering some problem though.. 2 issues..
1. I got an unknown (I cannot find any brand name anywhere on the flash drive) flash drive from friend and after plugging in, the system identify it as ADAM USB device and installed the relevant driver. Now the sytsem could recognise the drive but the problem is that it cannot access the data on this flash drive because all the file names are "____" with the respective file extn eg. .ppt, .doc etc for MS office files... Can anyone help me out ? I suppose the installed driver in this case was not totally compatible... Is there a way to install a new driver and where to get this driver ?

2. RIght now I can only access the Palm T5 on drive mode but is unable to sync data with desktop because Palm does not provide any drivers for Win98se since Microsoft is not supporting Win98/98se anymore... can anyone help in this area ? where do I get the driver so that I could sync the Palm t5 with the desktop on win 98se ?

thanks !!

Just an idea - isn't possible that these file names are in different character set than is the default character set of your Windows 98?

Is the NUSB22E (and its updated .inf file) sufficient for USB 2 storage to work ? I mean, without also doing the MDGX "98SEtoME" modification ? I don' t like the idea of going for the latter, esp. since he does not provide non US versions, and I am nervous about how that would interact with Windows Updates, and finally because I do not want some of his replacements - the Scandisk from ME for instance is definitely not good for 98 SE (doesn't work with Drivespace).

Please see READ1ST.TXT for details how to install 98SE2ME option 8, which installs only USB, Firewire + WDM drivers from WinME CD + 98SE2ME directory [C:\9!M] without installing the rest of 98SE2ME:

Hope this helps.

Hail, MDGx! Yep, since that earlier post of mine I have tried many things, including the NUSB2 and 98SE2ME limited to USB/Firewire, as per your earlier posts. It's fine, but has done nothing to alleviate my problem, which as discussed in another thread is that the motherboard manufacturer, SiS (now Foxconn I believe) did not want to pay for licencing the OrangeWare USB 2.0 stack for Windows 98/SE/ME, nor did they bother to develop one in-house. As a result of this, users of SiS based mother boards in Windows 9x are limited to USB 1.1 functionality even though the hardware is USB 2.0 capable (and works in Win 2k SP4).

Thank you for your impressive work

Maximus-Decim,

So far, only one little bug concerns me. That is when I click on the Unplug or Eject Hardware icon and follow the prompts until the Wizard says it's O.K. to remove the device, the LED on the flash drive is still on. With my XP tower, the LED goes off when I reach this point.

When I plug in my Avixe USB 256MB drive nothing happens. I have to install drivers for it separately (after nusb22e), and the drive works BUT there is no tray icon / remove dialog.

Maximus! Many thanks to you for this excellent driver! I purchased a Sandisk Sansa M240 mp3 player as a gift for my son thinking that it had Win98se support. Unfortunately, Sandisk does not support Win98se for this player, which led me on a long search for a driver to allow me to load files to the player. After finding this forum and installing your driver....Sweet Relief!!!! It works perfectly and is very easy to use. You have my thanks and respect Sir! Keep up the good work! :thumbup :thumbup :thumbup

A very handy tweak indeed, yes many thanks for your efforts Maximus..
It didn't work 1st go though, but I worked it out in the end...
1st it wouldn't detect a thing so I browsed through this entire thread
& installed all add-ons I thought might help, & in the end I have 2
98se machines seeing all my different brands of flash drives..
1st, I installed the nusb22e.exe from the 1st post & not much
happened at all after a reboot, except that the machine now
has the dreaded shutdown problem { wont shutdown }
then I installed the updated usbstor.inf into the Windows\Inf
folder, but still no-go.
Then I installed the drivers for one of my flash-drives &
then it would detect, but now all other brands detect as well,
plus the icon for disconnecting the devices also shows next to
the volume icon, bottom right..
I'm wondering if installing the drivers for one of my flash drives
somehow made a registry change that kept it working & detecting
every other drive from there on in using your drivers..


The only problem was the shutdown didn't work, until I installed
3 files from MS
1: 239887up.exe = shutdown supp # 1

2: 4756US8.EXE = shutdown supp # 2

3: 240075up.exe = usb controller update, which according to MS, is for
a system running via chipset with K6 cpu, well one system had a K6cpu, but
had an ALI chipset, yet this update was also needed for that system to
shutdown every time without locking up too.

Some pics to show it working below...

My PQi 1GB flash memory drive is not recognised by your NUSB22E driver file. Is there any way of modifying an inf file so that it will work (instructions please) and will it be supported in future versions.

To work around this problem you can right click the Removable Disk in Windows Explorer and in the drop-down menu click "Eject", the LED will go off. And if you don't want to be bothered by the Unsafe Dialog (error) message that will pop-up, you can patch the SYSTRAY.EXE as I explained here:

http://www.msfn.org/...ic=43605&st=116

After the patch the hotplug will behave like it is in WinXP.

My friend has mistakenly installed NUSB into his Win98 First Edition.
Certainly it won't work. BSOD will come up each time a device is plugged in.
Any hint on how to uninstall it?
Thanks a lot.

Mate, I have to thank you!

not only does this usb driver allow Windows 98 SE to detect most of my usb thumbdrives it has now over achieved.

It allowed Windows 98SE to detect my SonyEricsson w800i memory stick

I can now add and delete mp3's to my w800i through windows 98SE usb connection!


1st I had to install Sony Ericsson's USB driver then your USB driver!

You little ripper!

Here's a way to add the "Unplug or Eject Hardware" icon to systray:

1. Install "PCIC or compatible PCMCIA controller" driver, restart.
2. Remove the driver, restart.

The icon should show up after plugging a USB device.

after leaving my usb flash drive in over a period of time
it creates a temp folder on the flash drive and data is writing to it allowing me
not to unplug or shut it down.I have to snatch it out just to close it or restart my computer.

Hello World ( :P ),
This driver is great, thanks!
I have 3 USB keys, are they present in the driver?
1/ no name, driver = SNXPDR.pdr
2/Verbatim Store'n go, driver = MDOCUSB.sys
3/Ramosruntek disk, drivers=
UMSSFDK2.sys, UMSSPDR2.sys and UMSSPDRF.pdr.
I have, of course, all these drivers which work perfectly under W98SE.
If you need them, I can E-mail them to you.
Greetings from Belgium,
Z.

The logical step to enable the detection of as many as possible USB devices is to add the VID and PID of new devices into the USBSTOR.INF, but doing so will quickly fill up the 64 kB limit that Win98SE can handle INF files. In spite of using abbreviation “DD” instead of “DeviceDesc”, Maximus-Decim has reached 62 kB in his NUSB 2.2.1!

To work around it I use another approach as it is done in WinXP. Most of the USB storage devices, such as flash disk, thumbdrive etc. are compatible to the generic driver, hence for the detection of those kinds of devices I rely on the following lines in the USBSTOR.INF:

[Generic]
%GenericBulkOnly.DeviceDesc%=USBSTOR_BULK,USB\Class_08&SubClass_02&Prot_50
%GenericBulkOnly.DeviceDesc%=USBSTOR_BULK,USB\Class_08&SubClass_05&Prot_50
%GenericBulkOnly.DeviceDesc%=USBSTOR_BULK,USB\Class_08&SubClass_06&Prot_50

[Strings]
Generic.Mfg = "Compatible USB storage device"
GenericBulkOnly.DeviceDesc = "USB Mass Storage Device"

We need to specify the VID and PID only for the devices that do not fall into that generic category, e.g., digital camera, USB IDE Hard Drive and so on. With that done, we can have a small USBSTOR.INF of only 17 kB, giving ample of space to add those non-generic devices.

There is a tradeoff though, if you plug in a new device to the system for the first time, Windows will ask you to click “OK” to proceed installing the generic driver. But that should not be too much a problem, right?

With this solution implemented it can detect all my thumbdrives of different brands, it can even successfully detect card reader, the most recent I use is a Neodio based 45-in-1 card reader that I tried already for CF, SD, MMC and MS Pro flash cards.

For those of you that like to follow my way but do not have access to WinXP, I attached herewith that small USBSTOR.INF to try (at your own risk though).
