Meanwhile, I found an intermediate solution, i.e., by the use of USB View (usbview.exe) from Microsoft, Version 5.1.2600.0 upward, with the "Config Descriptors" turned on, we can find the "MaxPower" in the "Configuration Descriptor" that show how many mA is drawn by the device.


you can find newer versions of the USB Viewer app [usbview.exe] bundled inside the Windows Server 2003 SP1 DDK and Windows Vista DDK. these versions resolve the problems listed in MS article 838100-
http://support.micro...kb/838100/en-us

also, can you try out usbview.exe version 5.00.2195.1620 here and see if it works on your Win98se computer.

Version 5.00.2195.1620 works on Windows 98, it is the same file as http://www.ftdichip....ies/usbview.zip already discussed here.

I have tried to compile the version from Windows Server 2003 SP1 DDK and not only that it works on Windows 98 SE, but it also displays VIA EHCI (USB2.0) controller correctly! Nice. Both XPSP2 and WS2003SP1 versions (5.2.3790.1830, 5.1.2600.2180) work OK on W98, surprisingly building for Windows 2000 platform resulted in the following error message:
1>BUILDMSG: Warning : The sample "c:\winddk\3790~1.183\src\wdm\usb\usbview" is not valid for the current OS target.

Thanks for this information erpdude.

Petr

Edit: Now I have tried also Windows Vista WDK (build 5744) and usbview.exe does not run in Windows 98 OS regardless on the build environment used.

Here is compiled usbview.exe with added about 1000 additional Vendor-ids from http://www.linux-usb.org/usb.ids.
http://old.winpack.o...etr/usbview.exe
Works on Windows 98 SE, XP and probably on all similar platforms.
Please confirm that it displays everything correctly.

thanks Petr. I'll try the newer build on my Win98se/ME machines later this week.

I've also found a "modded" edition of Usbview.exe here. if you run this version it's version 5.1.2600.1106 but if you click on the About command to display the About dialog box, you will see it has been modified by someone. This specific version of Usbview has the Auto Refresh and Config Descriptors enabled by default.

I found a USB 2.0 driver install pack
and i was able to connect multiple USB 2.0 devices with no problem
the only flaw is it didn't show up in the systray
maybe these files can be added to nusb23e.exe

here it is

that's because most usb 2.0 devices are NOT supposed to be listed in the system tray. they should only show up in device manager unless you are connecting usb flash drives or other removable usb drives

do you mean, safe removal system tray icon? buy the IOMagic Datastation USB Floppy drive/ 7-in-1 media reader and try connecting that to a usb 2.0 port. I know that device should show up in both device manager and in the "safe removal" system tray icon
