Hello,

I've just finished setting up eCS Prv2 on my old IBM TP560X, and everything works just fine except for USB und PCMCIA/WLAN.

According to the IBM technical specifications the TP560X is equipped with an UHCI USB host controller which is supposed to be compatible with the USB drivers coming with Warp/eCS.

Unfortunately I always receive an error message reading USBUHCD.sys: (Additional) UHCI Compliant USB Host Controller not found.

Using the cw-usb package instead doesn't solve this.

Due to having no floppy drive or docking station available, it's pretty tough setting up or copying anything to/fro the harddrive (I've to take it out of my TP and put it into a PC, so lots of manual labour).

Any ideas?

Cheers,
Martin

It lisits your Thinkpad model with a mini-dock.

Here is a mini-dock for that model Thinkpad.

I had a similar problem with the USB on my A22m. When I connected the port replicator (with a usb port), it saw it. I had installed the latest USB drivers from the eCS member download section.

Have you considrered a port replicator? It might have an usb port.

(search results at eBay using thinkpad 560 port).
There are 18 items/port replicators in the eBay store.

Hi Martin

You want to make sure that USB Legacy (DOS) support is Off/Disabled and USB is On in the TP BIOS.

How many controllers does the system have? - and how many are you trying to load drivers for?

USBcfg may help configure USB drivers to the system requirements http://hobbes.nmsu.edu/pub/os2/system/usbcfgb7a.zip

Regards

Pete

Hi BigWarpGuy,

Thanks!

Seems I have to go for the enhanced port replicator, 'cause it comes with an USB port.

Cheers,
Martin
