USB and NT 4.0

By emarshall ·
Does NT 4.0 workstation support the USB port? I can't seem to get the workstation to recognize the USB card reader that worked with Windows 98.

I don't think NT 4.0 (any SP) does. Win 2000 does as far as I have read. lo

Hi, the first respondent is correct. Nt4.0 does not support usb, although 98 and 2000 do support it. One option to consider, if you need usb support, would be to dual boot nt4.0 with either 98 or 2000 and use usb while using those operating systems.Hope this helps.

Windows NT 4.0 does not provide built in USB support, Windows 2000 does 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

Hope this helps :)
