USB on dimension 4100 98SE???

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

I have acquired a second-hand Dimension 4100 from a friend. Having
reinstalled from the system recovery disk I still needed to download a few
drivers, but all seems ok now and there is nothing amiss in Device Manager.

However when I insert my USB Memory in to the USB port on the back it
detects the hardware but cannot find the driver.

Motherboard is and Intel D815EEA. I have looked for drivers but can't find
anything on the Dell or Intel site.

Any ideas please.

Cheers.
Roger.

    Instead of going through all this frustration, and ending up with an
    obsolete USB 1.0 port, why not do like I did and go down to Wal-Mart
    and spend 30-bucks on a USB 2.0 card that has the drivers you need
    included.

    Did you install the Intel .inf chipset drivers for the board
    (support.dell.com, enter service tag number, choose downloads, then chipset
    utility)?

    If memory serves me correctly, the USB drivers are not installed
    automatically. They are on the Win98SE CD and must be installed manually.

    I think so - I have tried so much now!!!
    I will check and get back.

    At the moment on inserting the memory it detects a 'composite usb device'
    but cannot find a driver.
    I point it at c:\dell\drivers\ but can't recall where that folder came
    from, also a few others after downloads from Intel - sorry not much help
    really!!
    I'll get back.

    Ta.
    Roger.

    Just checked - yes I had downloaded and installed the chipset drivers.
    The device in question is a Dell 128MB Memory Stick - one of those that goes
    on a key ring.
    Should I have a driver with that?

    No - I expand the zip file into a folder but when I point at that folder
    during the installation it says that it does not contain information about
    the hardware (or something similar)!

    Which won't help.

    For Windows 98, you need the drivers for the KEY. It should have come with
    them.

    I don't understand. The Belkin 5-port USB 2.0 PCI card, which I
    referred to, comes with the drivers for Windows 98SE, which the
    original poster said he had.

    The Belkin CD installs two USB 1.1 OHCI controllers and one USB 2.0
    EHCI host controller. Are these what you refer to as the KEY? Or
    does Belkin make the assumption that the KEY is already in place for
    98SE?

    Yes, all seems ok now.

    For some reason it was detecting a 'Composite USB Port'.

    What I think sorted it was going into to Safe Mode, then DevMan, deleting
    all the USB stuff, including the 'Composite USB Portt and starting again but
    pointing at the extracted Memory Key files from the Dell site when prompted.

    All worked fine.

    I reckon it was me that selected the Composite stuff somewhere and from then
    on 98SE always seemed to detect that when I put the key in!!!

    Cheers.

    Win9x does not have USB drivers for most connected devices, and if a
    device is connected without a driver, the OS will just pick some device
    from a hat even before the hardware wizard starts. USB device drivers
    must be installed before the device is connected the first time. When
    this problem arises, it is best to boot to safe mode and remove
    everything from there and start over.

    No. The OP discussed a USB memory KEY.
