NT4 & USB

By michael.mulholland ·
I have been trying to install a HP cd-writer, 8200 or 8206e, on a NT WORKSTATION but it will not accept the drivers. I have also downloaded the drivers from the HP web site but have the same problem. NT replies that the drivers are for windows 98.
The NT workstation beside the one in question has a HP cd-writer, 7200 series, running on a parallel cable without any difficulty.

Does NT4 support usb? If so, does anyone know where I can find the appropriate drivers.

Thanks for your help.

I don't even know of an add-on. But Win2000 does support USB, if your going to upgrade now is the time. No reason to take a step back to Win98

NT4 does not support USB. I would suggest either Win98 or Win2000. Win2000 would be the better choice...why not go with the latest and greatest. Good Luck.

Windows NT 4.0 does not provide built in USB support, you will need to wait for Windows 2000 or switch to Windows 98. Some boxes convert the USB devices into serial ports.
Inside Out has produced USB cards and hubs for NT 4.0, see http://www.ionetworks.com/press/nt.html although these are limited. http://www.ltitl.com/ has announced they are developing a Windows NT 4.0 USB driver: This is a good site for information. Once you go to the site click on solutions and it will have information for USB Drivers.
