USB on NT 4.0

By bgrady ·
I've recently had to install ntws on several
computers which have USB devices attached to
them. I'm having a real hard time getting NT
recognize them however. Is there a way to get
NT to recognize USB devices?

USB on NT 4.0

NT 4.0 doesn't support USB. I searched a while back for the same answer. As far as I could tell, it just flat doesn't support it and I couldn't find any 3rd party software to provide that support either.

Your best bet is to upgrade to Win2K orgo to Win98.

Hope this helps,
Howard H.

bgrady@mindspring.com,

NT4 does not support USB as supplied by Microsoft. Only Win9X-based and Win2K OSes support USB. To enable USB under NT4, you must use a third-party solution. There are several companies that make them.

Also consider that the software supplied by the USB device suppliers may not work with NT4 even when you obtain USB support. If USB is really important, I would consider upgradign to Win2K.

Good luck.

I recently went to this web site: http://www.ionetworks.com/support/epdrivers.html where there are drivers for the USB to be recognised in NT4 WS. The problem I am having is that there are no NT4 drivers for my HP3300C scanner. This is something you should be aware of as in one of the previous answers.
