NT 4 Plug &Play and USB

By BlackDiamond ·
Hey,

Just want to see if what I think is right.

NT 4 does not support USB.
NT 4 does not support Plug & Play devices. If you install pnpisa.inf, it will pick up some P&P devices. Use at your own risk.

Installing pnpisa.inf will have no effect on NTs ability or lack there of to support USB devices.

Thanx

Normally you are correct. Look at this though:

I don't know if it works.

P&P is "somewhat" supported. Generally it works on P&P devices that can be configured to use certain resources and you have them preset (kind of defeats the purpose). It does work to a point though.

USB is not officially supported by NT 4.0, but there are some companies (such as bluewater mentioned above) that are making drivers, but Microsoft does not support them.
