It's so difficult to find *any* driver for a Windows version newer than Windows 98 (means XP, Vista, Windows 7 etc.).
I've seen there was a Driver for Windows NT 4.0 (see attached file sd_nt4e.zip), but naturally the setup.exe does NOT run on Windows 7 x64 for example.
And unfortunately there is no ".INF" file for the driver files (MKEATAPI.SYS and MKEFPD.SYS), just a setup with a "INI.TXT", which is a bit similar to the searched .INF file, but not recognized for driver installation by the device manager in Windows 7.
I tried the NT 4.0 drivers because the Windows 95/98 drivers are far, far away to be usable for Windows XP or above, but the NT 4.0 drivers (or better Windows 2000 drivers) would be really recognized for a driver installation.
I've also found a 4.5MByte setup archive for Windows XP 32bit, but for sure it does NOT work with Windows 7 x64, too. I can upload this setup also, but I need to use it for x64 Windows 🙁
I even tried to use the DOS (LS120.SYS) driver with a bootable CD which starts DOS 7.1 (from Windows 98), the LS120.SYS does not recognize the drive).
This can be related with the ITE8211 parallel ATA/ATAPI controller I am using, but the card itself recognizes at boot-time the LS-120 drive correctly.
The LS-120 drive is also usable with Windows 7 x64 as a 1.44MB floppy drive (if a floppy disk was inserted at boot-time), but the "Eject" function is missing and you can ONLY use 1.44MB floppy disks, NOT any LS-120 media.
May be a BARTPE Windows XP boot CD would help, too, but for this I might need also XP driver (although some web sites claimed XP has integrated LS-120 drive support even for 120MB diskettes).
