USB 2.0 Stack for Win98/ME

77 posts in this topic

This driver is created from Windows 2000 SP4 USB 2.0 stack by SweetLow from russian Ru-Board forum.

http://sweetlow.at.tut.by/download/usb2.zip

http://tihiy.ahanix.org/usb2.zip

This is an expirimental build, i'm uploading it because i don't have enough Win98 park.

Please try it if you can/want.

Remove current USB/EHCI drivers (and their .inf files if there are), delete EHCI controllers from Device Manager.

You can also try to install it by right-click.

Feedback appreciated.

They'll be included into newer NUSB version if positive :rolleyes:

Wow, it seems to work!

Intel ICH6 chipset + Kingston Elite Data Traveller High Speed, transfer speed 23 MB/s.

Now what is the origin of those files? They are not from SP4.

Usbport.sys 5.00.2195.5652 is from Q319973, SP4 contains 5.00.2195.6681

Usbehci.sys 5.00.2195.5652 is from Q319973, SP4 contains 5.00.2195.6709

Usbhub20.sys 5.00.2195.6655 - this file is from SP4

Is there any reason not to use all files from Windows 2000 SP4? I tried them and they apparently worked.

Here is list of USB 2.0 controllers, I think it is nice when exact detail name is present in the device manager.

But do the newer files work properly?

This is very good question.

I tried to find some relevant SweetLow's post on forum.ru but I failed.

So I tried just to copy newer versions over the old ones.

All files form SP4 worked.

usbhub20.sys and usbehci.sys from Windows2000-KB838989-x86-ENU.EXE worked too.

usbport.sys from Windows2000-KB838989-x86-ENU.EXE caused Windows Protection at Windows startup.

Tested on Windows 98 SE, with Intel ICH6 southbridge and VIA VT6212 USB 2.0 controllers, when I wrote "worked" I meant that Kingston USB disk was successfuly recognized and files could be copied in both directions at high speeds.

Maybe there are other problems that I have not identified.

I had also several blue screens during driver installation but I don't know what was the root cause and it is too late today to continue with experiments.

It is really great to see this generic USB 2.0 support.

Maybe somebody could proceed full Hardware Compatibility Test to check the driver for any possible problem.

BTW, has anybody tried http://sweetlow.at.tut.by/download/umss.zip ?

You can always test them yourself [222 KB]:

http://www.mdgx.com/files/USB20DRV.EXE

Experimental = for Windows 98 SE + ME only:

test if it works. If it doesn't = restore original files as instructed further below.

This iexpress installer copies these 3 newer files from Windows 2000 Fix:

http://support.microsoft.com/?id=838989

to %windir%\system32\drivers :

USBEHCI.SYS 5.00.2195.6882

USBHUB20.SYS 5.00.2195.6891

USBPORT.SYS 5.00.2195.6926

INF [uSB20DRV.INF] tweaked to force install on WinME [work around SR/WFP (System Restore/Windows File Protection)].

To restore original drivers:

Start button -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs -> select "Unofficial USB 2.0: Restore original drivers" -> click Add/Remove button.

So this driver is so you don't need to install any 3rd party drivers for your computers USB ports,

be them built into the motherboard or as an add-on PCI card?

Those files were taken from pre-sp4 microsoft usb 2.0 drivers:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/319973

Attention: usbport.sys higher than 5.0.2195.5652 is know to be faily, so please avoid now downloading MDGx pack.

There are also reports of BSODs when installing flash drives first time. They seem to be fixed in future NUSB.

Also non-letal BSODs are possible when disabling/removing controller or hub. Please test those cases.

Not all of them, Usbhub20.sys is from SP4.

Attention: usbport.sys higher than 5.0.2195.5652 is know to be faily, so please avoid now downloading MDGx pack.

I was able to work with

Usbport.sys 5.00.2195.6681

Usbhub20.sys 5.00.2195.6891

Usbehci.sys 5.00.2195.6882

What failures are known?

Yes, I have experienced many of BSODs both during installing and when removing the controller in the device manager. I was not able to find any reproducibility, it was just random, both with old and new files.

And strange thing, when installed on computer with ICH6 and VIA controller, with VIA USB 2.0 driver installed, Usbport.sys remained the old one (4.90.3000.11) and the other two files were replaced. Unfortunately VIA USB 2.0 driver uses exactly the same file names as this generic driver.

It's a driver set for usb 2.0 contollers. It's already included with NUSB 3.3.

Surprised to see update on this thread. Anyway, just come in to say thank you.

NUSB 3.3 is the first version that I used on 98 recently. Very powerful and convenient. Thank you once again.

@ MDGx i have installed from WinXP SP1 hotfix KB838989

USBEHCI.SYS 5.1.2600.1515

USBPORT.SYS 5.1.2600.1532

and they seem to work very well I have not witness any problems

maybe you and others should test more (Double Check) just to make sure i'm not wrong.

Can I just replace those 3 *.SYS driver files in my W98 by this newer? (I could use CZ version). This are original WinXP files or modified some way?

Tihy wrote about Windows 2000 SP4 *.SYS files but nUSB 3.3 already use it, what's the point? I think that INF file needs extension for intel ICH9 and ICH10.

EDIT1:

I just installed USB20DRV.EXE over nUSB 3.3 but my EHCI stopped work:

NTKERN.VXD failed to load driver code 2

I checked that SYS files was replaced OK.

I tried redetect EHCI and point USB20DRV.INF but still the same.

I found that USBPORT.SYS has missing import of some kernel funcs

EDIT2:

I tried USBPORT.SYS 5.00.2195.6941 and 5.00.2195.6926 from KBs suggested by Petr but then I got "Windows protection error" at boot in text mode and I had to revert older version 5.00.2195.5652

I confirm xRayeR's results:

In my experience, the last USBPORT.SYS to work OK in Win 98SE is v. 5.0.2195.5652, while for USBSTOR.SYS (in case one installs it with WDMSTUB.SYS v. 5.0.0.6 from NUSB30E) it's v. 5.0.2195.6773 (from KB823086). And for USBEHCI.SYS, the latest version that works is v. 5.0.2195.6882 (the latest available for W2k, check it here). Now, in what regards USBHUB20.SYS, it's more complicated: almost all chipsets work ok with v. 5.0.2195.6891, but VIA's don't. For VIA's chipsets, one needs VIA's own USBHUB20.SYS v. 4.90.3000.11 (findable inside VIA_USB2_V270p1-L-M), in order to avoid BSOD's on removing (hot-deplugging) USB 2.0 HUBs from the machine. Note that it must be substituted by hand, in true DOS, because NUSB3.3 contains v. 5.0.2195.6891, so it's really a downgrade.

With all due respect, I really marvel at how PROBLEMCHYLD's machine can get to run those XP versions at all.

Also non-letal BSODs are possible when disabling/removing controller or hub.

This issue mentioned by Tihiy is precisely the one due to USBHUB20.SYS v. 5.0.2195.6891 and VIA chipsets. While one can recover from the BSOD, the only sensible thing to do at that point is to restart or shutdown the machine.

@MDGx: If you could create a downgrader just for USBHUB20.SYS, for VIA machines, that would be most welcome and handy. Since NUSB 3.3 installs OK even on those machines, it would just be a matter of running the downgrader after installing NUSB, but before using any USB 2.0 HUB.

Sorry I'm quoting myself but when i replace the files above manually i didn't have any error messages, but then

we are all using different motherboards/chipset, btw mines is intel p4. Further testing is appreciated. My USB flash drive is a 1GB Sony MICROVAULT.

Thanks to all you guys.

I didn't, myself, test Win XP SP1 files for USB, up to now. Those from XP SP2 and SP3 don't work OK, according to my tests.

So, here is a preliminary analysis:

windowsxp-kb838989-X86-ENU.exe

USBEHCI.SYS 5.1.2600.1515 PE Timestamp: 04/11/2004 3:21:54 AM CRC32: C45C00F6 Size: 025216

WDMCHECK: Module has no missing import links.

USBPORT.SYS 5.1.2600.1532 PE Timestamp: 05/14/2004 7:40:19 PM CRC32: CFC74047 Size: 139136

WDMCHECK: Module uses the following missing functions: IoCsqRemoveNextIrp; IoCsqInitialize; IoCsqInsetIrp.

Compare with:

USBEHCI.SYS 5.0.2195.6882 PE Timestamp: 12/12/2003 5:37:43 PM CRC32: 85F85C09 Size: 019792

WDMCHECK: Module has no missing import links.

USBPORT.SYS 5.0.2195.5652 PE Timestamp: 04/23/2002 5:46:44 PM CRC32: F7760957 Size: 135920

WDMCHECK: Module has no missing import links.

Having missing functions, USBPORT.SYS v. 5.1.2600.1532 is a no-no. USBEHCI.SYS v. 5.1.2600.1515 may be viable, however, and warrants more testing. I generally tend to stick with Win 2k files as they should be the least distant from the 9x files, at least in theory. But I'll give this one a try, soon.

Ok guys... here is the updated downgrade [or the downgraded update]: :wacko:
