USB Drivers at DOS Level

by maxwell edison In reply to USB Drivers at DOS Level

You may be able to get the necessary DOS support files (driver) from Computer Access Technology Corporation. A link follows:

http://www.catc.com/products/usb4dos.html

(REMOVE SPACES from the pasted URL.)

They state, "...Computer Access Technology Corporation provides USB support under DOS for production line testing and embedded applications. DOS application developers needing to communicate with USB devices now have the ability to do so in a clear, straightforward manner. Using a simple software interface, applications can configure USB devices, monitor their activity in real time while quickly transferring data back and forth between them..."

There is a download link, but I didn't try it since it required a registration. (I'mon enough email lists already!) And I don't know if there's a cost involved.

It may be worth a try.

Good luck and have a GREAT 2002!

This link:

http://imagcom.ffclrp.usp.br/pub/Windows/Driver/Zip%20USB%20DOS%20Driver/

appears to have one, but which one is it????

(That one may be for a zip drive, however.)

I think your best bet is Computer Access Technology Corporation.

USB Drivers at DOS Level

I visited suggested URL & posted my question on their site as well as emailed it to them. They answered that they are interested in providing DOS drivers for USB devices to developers at a cost of dollars running in to thousands. Not suitable for individual for personal use. Thanks for your suggestion, but it could not help.
