I'm going into device manager, selecting the USB, update driver,
have disk, and selecting the driver from u2e304.zip which is the
usb driver to use on the webplayer for Win98. but it says that
the driver does not match my hardware and refuses to install.
does anyone know how to override it. what values do I change in the
.INF file to make it think it's the correct driver?
before I had removed the usb device in device manager and rebooted.
I then pointed it to the new driver directory. but now based
upon the above paragraph I'm not sure if it actually used it
and instead used the Win98 default.
If your usb adaptor uses the kawasaki driver, after you install it there will be a file called usbenet.sys (I think in \windows or \windows\system) Use Find files to locate it, then copy the version contained in the zip file over the top of it.
One thing I did try that seemed to help in my case: If you go to the "Compaq Openhci" device, go to update driver, show compatible devices, you can choose "Standard Openhci"
The difference appears to be that the Compaq driver has a patch for a bug in handling hubs that is not needed with the usb controller in the webplayer.
