USB port not being recognized

By luv2bike2 ·
Is it true that in NT USB ports are not recognized? Is there a way to make them work in NT? I have 3 computers that are not connected to the network so I can not copy the files to the network and back them up. The 3 computers do not have CD RW drives. I wanted to use a Flash Drive but when I connected the drive it was not showing up.
Thanks,

No out of the box way to make USB ports available in NT that support flashdrives. You must use custom developed drivers to enable USB port.

True, Windows NT does NOT support USB devices period.

The work-arounds, even the BSquare software offer ONLY limited device support.

In fact, BSquare was looking into adding more device support a couple of years ago and was having trouble finding programmers to work on the project.

If any USB drives are supported, they are going to older first generation drives.

Another option would be a floppy drive or PCMCIA slot to memory card adapter.
