I've had no luck enabling a pci USB2 card on my W98se build [based on an Abit AV6 mobo with USB1.1]. I've tried an IOgear with NEC drivers, a Rosewill and a Syba both with the VIA drivers. All three advertise W98se compatibility.
The rig's onboard USB ports work fine and I use flash drives and external HDs. I installed IE6 [core only], nUSB33, and tried both the basic enhancement/fixes of the Unofficial SPs 2.1a and 3.
I've heard these cards are hard to pair with one's system, can anyone recommend a brand/product number that might work for me?
EDIT: Thread title should read W98se not 95....
EDIT 2: Success. Went back to the IOGear GIC220U 2-port. Installed over pretty driver clean W98se/unofficialSP21a [fixes/tweaks only] SP3 [IE6 core only], and nUSB33e. Also had the VIA Hyperion 4-in1 chipset drivers installed.. It's mad black art...
