USB Support for Windows NT 4.0

By dwayne.sealy@caribsurf. ·
I've been researching for some time the area of support for USB devices under the Windows NT 4.0 O/S (particularly NT Workstation).

I recently came across a product called USB for Windows by BlueWater Systems, my question is whether anyone has had any success in connecting this software to an HP CD-Writer drive.

USB Support for Windows NT 4.0

Dwayne,

As you are probably aware, NT4.0 does not "natively" support USB. To get native USB support under NT, you need to run Windows 2000.

As far as connecting a USB CD-Writer under NT4, I don't have any experience. The Bluewater looks interesting though.

Good luck.

I just bought BlueWater to get NT4.0 USB drivers for an IBM memory stick, an HP scanner and other "oddball" devices. The BlueWater specs only provide for keyboards, mice, etc.

Did you have any luck getting a CDW hooked up?
