Solved: Can Just the USB2 Drivers Be Extracted from the SP-2 Disk?

Q: Solved: Can Just the USB2 Drivers Be Extracted from the SP-2 Disk?

One of my drives has just Windows XP Pro on it. NO service packs.

I have a usb2 mass storage device that connects to the xp drive but this storage device (drive) only functions with usb 1 capabilities. IF I install SP2 I can get usb2 capabilities but I notice that some of my games run more slowly. (I don't know why)

Is there any way I can extract just the USB2 drivers from the SP-2 disk so I don't have to install the entire service pack to the drive?

Thanks,
HULK

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

I went from having 3 working hubs 2 x USB2 and 1 with 1 USB2 port in it.... then 1 day 1 one of my USB2 hubs stopped working...... now that 1 is working and the other 1 has stopped.

Things I have done to date :-

I uninstalled them all .. then swapped positions in my tower, still no joy, with the one USB2 Hub.

Uninstalled them all (the drivers), removed power supply from each, unplugged from the tower, then added the non working one first, all the drivers installed successfully, but still nothing will run from it.

Uninstalled it again, removed the INFCACHE.1, restarted the PC, all drivers were successfully installed but this one Hub will not recognise anything!

Hey everyone, I have an issue that has been bugging me for weeks, that alas I cannot solve. Usually I can solve most things, but this problem eludes me, and apparently most of the internet.

I have an ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution mobo, with 6x USB2.0 ports on the I/O panel. None of these USB ports are running at enhanced speeds, and no matter how I go about it, they will not update drivers. Ive got the latest windows updates (running windows 7 x64), latest chipset drivers and BIOS for the mobo, Been through the bios and made sure that USB2.0 is enabled and Legacy USB support is disabled (was originally enabled, no difference) Tried manually updating drivers but it says "windows has determined you already have the latest drivers. etc"

Tried manally uninstalling individual USB ports in the device manager, but the only way to recognize the device again is to scan for hardware changes, and then it just re-installs the same drivers.

this problem baffles me.

Ive heard people say if you uninstall EVERYTHING to do with USB and their controllers, root hubs etc then go back to dev manager and force it to rescan it will work, but I need a PS2 mouse and keyboard, I have USB, and would prefer not to go out and buy one solely for this fix (I live in a very remote area).

If anyone has any suggestions of knowledge on this issue, and could help me anyway, I would be extremely grateful.

Cheers,
Mitchell.

Hi there

Just want to say that on a decent laptop (i5 processor) running Windows to Go from a standard external USB2 disk (using a 7200 RPM old laptop drive connected via a sata==>usb2 connector) performance is certainly totally ACCEPTABLE. Even running Photoshop is OK - and I've connected the USB drive via an UNPOWERED USB hub !!

The Windows to go system is certainly nice as a portable system with my own copies of Office etc in various languages and keyboard configurations -- certainly when I'm on site where other languages / keyboards are used.

For those who think you have to use a "certified" device -- you don't -- you can install on "bog standard" devices -- you will need to extract the IMAGEX program from the WAIK -- you can use the Windows 7 WAIK (downloadable from Ms) if you haven't got it. Ensure you chose the x86 / x64 version depending on what version of Windows you want in your Windows to go system.

Here's how to create a Windows to Go system on a "normal" device. (You still of course need W8.1 Enterprise).

A:Windows to Go on standard USB2 ext disk

I may have another go at that. I have a Windows To Go setup now on an external USB 2 enclosure with a laptop hard drive in it. I have a Kingston Hyper X 64 GB USB 3 thumb drive I'd love to use but its not certified so the official Windows To Go Utility won't use it. I think I'll wait for update 2 before I do it though. I bookmarked that link for future reference so thanks for that.

That's something I just don't get? It will let me install on my dirt slow 5400 laptop drive in a USB 2 enclosure but won't let me use a faster USB 3 thumb drive? Common Microsoft, get it together will ya.

Hi there
Just running some tests on three average external USB2 HDD (self powered) 1TB drive -- Thicker older WD model -- not the Passport type but still self powered.

On a USB2 connection the data transfer still around 50% FASTER than when formatted with standard MBR.

Unless you NEED the older MBR system I can't see ANY disadvantages to making all my disks GPT where possible - except for the small SSD I have as my Boot disk -- even on a non UEFI system (where a GPT disk won't be bootable - but perfectly fine for DATA etc).

Anybody who knows any reasons for NOT converting -- please post as from what I can see it's WIN in every way -- and gets round the stupid 4 primary partitions for MBR drives and also is compatible with my larger (> 3TB) drives too.

Hi all,

I'm new to Photoshop. I'm trying to save an image without the white square background. I was able to create a layer by going to Image > Extract and tracing around the object. I haven't figured out how to save the extracted object. When I save the image, it looks the same as the original (white background included). I've tried saving in different formats (JPG, GIF, PNG, etc.). How can I save the foreground image only? I've spent way too much time today looking for this, and it's probably very simple (and will make me feel like a schmuck I'm sure).

I would like to "UPGRADE" to win XP Home but the hard drive isn't seen because it's missing the xp sata drivers. I already went to gateways driver site and downloaded the 32bit sata/ mass storage controller, the chipset wich supports XP and the Sigma Tel Audio Driver. I am going to use "nlite" to slipstream the drivers into the XP install disk but have a few questions because I have never done this. First, do I need to insert all drivers into the xp install or just the sata/ mass controller? And If anyone has ever done this could I get you to walk me through it? I appreciate your time and effort! By the Way, the laptop doe NOT have a floppy and I do not have a usb floppy.

 

A:Solved: Help with slipstreaming drivers into xp instal disk

I think you're making a big mistake by downgrading from Vista to XP.

I don't see XP drivers at the Gateway site for that laptop for the wired adapter and wireless adapter and display adapter, so you're going to have a connection problem and a display problem after you get XP installed.

It may not be necessary to slip-stream the SATA drivers into the XP CD. Examine the settings in the BIOS setup screen and see if there's an option to enable IDE support.

I lost the drivers to my USB stick aka Flash Drive aka USB Mass Storage Device. Googling around, it became apparent that this is not unusual, and with a variety of suggestions, some of which are a bit extreme. What fixed it for me, and what seems a sensible place for anyone to start is to reinstall the driver. To do this...

Put the USB stick into a USB port and when the Add New Hardware wizard appears Browse your way to C:\windows\inf then let the wizard complete the installation process. This may take a while as it works it way through all the options.

If the wizard does not appear then open "Device Manager" look for the Flash Drive, which will have a yellow fault icon, right click it, select properties, and do the Install Driver procedure, browsing to C:\windows\inf.

I'm fairly sure (but not certain) that the file needed is usbstor.inf so you may wish to just select that to see if it speeds things up.

I hope this is some help i getting you out of what seems like a very deep hole when you're in it!

Hi,

I have an old Dell DIMENSION 8300, Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4CPU 2.60GHz 2.59GHz, & 1.00GB of RAM that I ended up having to do a reformat of the hard disk yesterday and when installing the drivers I had run into some problems with the audio drivers. I have the utility disk that came with the computer, so I was installing the drivers with that. The audio driver showed to be 198xIntegrated Audio Driver Sound Max. When it gets to the installation process, it would run through and then an error would pop up saying "Driver not found, Reboot Your System and run step again". I tried this and it would not work. I checked in device manager and everything else seemed to be okay except under other devices/multimedia controller had the yellow question mark. I even went to Dell's downloads to get the same exact file and try it but it didn't work. The file for it was R58182. I did some searching on the net about this issue and there were other folks that had run into this problem but I couldn't find any resolution to it. Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Hi,

A:Solved: Not recognising any ports as USB2

Do you have errors in Device Manager? If you have USB controllers listed with a Yellow question mark, then uninstall then and reboot and then they'll install correctly.

Also install the latest Intel Chipset drivers: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/con...All&OSFullName=All Operating Systems&lang=eng

The Original version of XP did not support drives over 137GB or USB 2.0. Service Pack 1 added that supported.
To create a partition out of the unallocated space on the drive use Disk Management from the Administrative Tools.

It is obvious to me that USB2 cables are fundamentally different from USB3 cables in that there are additional conductors in the USB3 that don't exist in the USB2 cables. Obviously, those wires have a function; but, I also assume one could use a USB3 cable for a USB2 device without a problem.

Is that true? I know it seems obvious; but, I just want to be sure.

I'm about to order a small number of USB cables for stock and it seems logical to stock only USB3 cables if this is true.

It suggests that I am connected to a HI speed Hub so why the error message?

I was having a lot of troubles with XP PRO after a CPU failure, when I tried to do an XP installation Repair. It failed miserably and after a month of posting and searching for answers, I threw in the towel.
I reformatted the HD and did a clean install. On the advice of a MS Tech, I downloaded SP3 and installed it first thing. After I got everything up and running with all the updates, I discovered that XP no longer recognizes my USB ports as USB2. I found some original drivers on the Motherboard installation disk, but it will not allow me to install them because my XP SP2 install disk is already supposed to have them.
I tried removing all the USB drivers and forcing XP to figure it out, but no luck. It is an ASUS P5GD2 Deluxe with a P4 processer and an XP PRO SP3 Operating System. It was working fine for at least 2 years.
Anybody know how I can fix this?
 

A:Solved: XP Pro SP3 doesnÂ’t recognize my USB ports as USB2

my 2 cents: slipstream SP3 into your installation CD and start over.

Using WinXP Pro SP2, Asus P4B533-E (6 USB2.0), and Benq EW1621. Windows keep redectecting the dvd-writer drive and says that the drive is not connected to a high-speed usb2.0 port when those are the only ones I should have. What is wrong?

How do I make sure the USB2.0 ports are working properly?

Do I need to update the BIOS for the motherboard since the usb ports are from the motherboard?

Using everest.exe:
Field Value
PCI Devices
Bus 0, Device 29, Function 7 Intel 82801DB(M) ICH4(-M) -Enhanced USB2 Controller [A-1]

Has anyone ever done this ? I am new to and just bought a JVC miniDV Camcorder. It says in the owners manual that one can: transfer still images stored on a memory card to a PC using USB. It also says that you can transfer still/moving images that were recorded on the DV tape to a PC as well, by using USB. I thought that one had to use the IEEE 1394 Firewire to transfer or capture the digital stills and moving images(digital video) from the Camera's DV Tape to the PC ?
If someone knows how to do this could you please help me out and elaborate some how this is accomplished using USB rather than Firewire ?! I'd like to use what I hav cuz i don't have "Firewire" on my PC as yet.

Any help id be really appreciated. Thanks.

I used 7zip to open up a .gz zipped/archived file. It seems like 7zip extracts and downloads the files to open it? Is that correct? If so, where are the files located? Or is it just stored somewhere temporarily and then deleted after?

I want to extract a .zip file of Windows icons in XP.

To which folder should I extract them?

A:Where Should Icon Packs Be Extracted To?

make a new folder on your drive and name it icons and then when you want to change an icon to one you have unzipped, point it towards the folder you have created "icons"
it's not like Fonts, that has it's own folder - icons are usually associated with the program or app - when you want to change them, you have to tell the program or app where the new icon is that you want to use

I don't know if other people had this problem but I have a folder that I need to extract but apparently when I extract it to desktop, I click on the folder and noticed some files were missing. I check the unextracted folder and all the files were fine.
I realized when I extract the folder to desktop, the files aren't actually deleting because they seem to be there in the unextracted folder but not there when I extract them.
the next thing I tried is extracting one file that gets deleted from that folder into the desktop and then nothing happens. So the main thing is that the files wont extract to the desktop for a weird reason. I use McAfee anti virus and I tried disabling
everything possible from it and extracted the file. But it didn't work; also i'm running Windows 10.
All I know is that this is probably not from my antivirus and it has to do something with the file not being extracted.

Please help me fix this problem ASAP as the internet has no good answers or no answers at all.
