To add another network scanner (WiFi)

Brother ADS-1600W

I does double sided scanning and scans to FTP and CIFS from the touch screen.


And now to USB Keyboards.

Roccat Isku+

It works with the USB keyboard driver but not to its full potential I think because it has three interfaces built in (there are Linux interface drivers for it that might be interesting).


Corsair K95

It works if set to legacy mode but this prevents any of the extra keys being recognised.

Corsair K55

This keyboard is not seen by our USB keyboard driver.

Hi Ivan.

Thanks. Here it goes:
- Brother ADS-1600W (Scanner)
- Roccat Isku+
- Corsair Gaming K95 RGB Mechanical Gaming Keyboard

Does the Corsair K55 does not work at all as a regular keyboard? Can you generate the hardware report of it to also document it? Or it does not even get recognized by the USB stack?

Hi Martin,

The Corsair K55 is seen by USBRES but that is all.  I think the problem is its multi section and the USBKBD.SYS doesn't find the one that is the keyboard - the others do LED lighting and macros.

Attached are the USB outputs for OS/2 and windows which might give someone some idea of what is going on.  It would be nice if it could be made to work because, like the K95 it is a solid mechanical keyboard reminiscent of the old IBM ones.

Hi Martin,

I am using the Conceptronic CSOUNDU C08-041 USB audio stick with the Lars Erdmann USB driver set. This adapter contains the C-Media CM109 chip.

Regards,

Wim.

Thanks Wim.

I will include it.

I also have one with a "C-Media" chipset that I want to try. Does the Audio input works to put a mic there and record audio?
Any tips on the how is the config.sys configuration/parameters of it?

Yes it does. It works very well with DTAPE V1.0 Beta 10 for playback and recording.

When using DTAPE for recording you need to set the correct Record Type before you open a new file.
You have to do this only once anytime that you plug in a different usb audio device.
For this device I used PCM, 44100 Hz and 48000 Hz, 16 bits, Mono, Line in.

When using DRECORD for recording I used "drecord /1 cmedia.wav" and "drecord /F:48000 /1 cmedia.wav"

No. DEVICE=D:\MMOS2\USBAUDIO.SYS /V
Just follow the installation instructions in the C:\READUSB.TXT file that comes with Lars Erdman usb drivers:
Quote
Q: Why does the USBAUDIO driver come as a zip package (copied to the \MMOS2 directory) within this zip ?
A: For audio drivers it's not sufficient to just copy them to a directory and modify config.sys.
They need to be installed via the "minstall" tool.
You need to extract the USBAUDIO.ZIP file into a temporary directory, open a commandline and run "minstall /*" from within that directory.
That will properly install the USB Audio Driver. Note that the ArcaNoae drivers might add an entry to config.sys
for USBAUDIO.SYS which you will need to remove/comment out first.

May I add that Wim and me we are currently working on a fix for USB 1.0 audio devices to being able to control playback volume/mute setting. But this is only a minor issue.

That said, ANY USB audio standard version 1.0 compatible device that supports sampling rates <= 48000 Hz should work with USBAUDIO.SYS. But you are limited to wave playback: MIDI does not work and properly never will (unless you use a SW emulation like Timidity). I have yet to come across an USB audio device that supports MIDI in HW. Wave Recording will also work but the current driver does not bother to support any controls regarding recording (like automatic gain control on/off etc. etc. etc.).
One of the reasons for this is that OS/2 does not have a user interface that would allow the user to control all that stuff (and the standard is very generic, it supports all kinds of odd controls, from compression to reverb, echo,  mixing, etc.)

Beware that more and more USB  audio devices now follow the standard version 2.0 because Microsoft has started to deliver such a driver for the Windows OSes (a few years ago). Unfortunately these standard versions are not backward/forward compatible which eventually will leave OS/2 behind (unless someone starts writing USB audio version 2.0 driver). As so often.

I have this scanner and I never could make it working !
How did you made it work ?
What are your definitions ?
Thanks

Ok
- Enable network under ADS1600W and connect it.
- Creates a folder for ADS1600 on my NAS (which has ftp server enabled)
- Created 3 profiles under
   http://ip@/scan/scanprofile.html
   tried secure ftp but it didn't success  -  used  local network ftp on port 21
   * profile for pdf
   * profile for pdf (ignore blank page)
   * profile for jpg
- Having a netdrive network connection to my NAS under ArcaOS, I could read scanned document
   (fine)

Select which profile to take (from those previously created) from under ADS1600W display (sensitive)
And scan + FTP

Is this a MIDI in hardware device? It is supposed to be class compliant.

Mini Portable 3G/4G Wireless-N Hotspot AP 150Mbps RJ45 USB Routers inalámbricos

https://www.ebay.es/itm/Mini-Portable-3G-4G-Wireless-N-Hotspot-AP-150Mbps-RJ45-USB-Routers-inal%C3%A1mbricos/201415658894?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

This accessory works well as wifi, wireless client mode, does not need drivers, is configured by web,
as power needs a port usb3.0 or 2.0. and an ethernet network cable from the PC to the accessory.

The only downside that I see is that it forces me to modify the tcp / ip with another network range
than the one I use abitually, but that's it.

Hi Martin,

I am also using the Logitech USB Headset H340 with the Lars Erdmann USB driver set.

When using DTAPE for recording I used PCM, 44100 Hz, 16 bits, Stereo, Line in.

When using DRECORD for recording I used "drecord logitech.wav"

Regards,

Wim.

Yes, that is a MIDI device. However, I was thinking about a USB device with a built-in synthesizer/wavetable that generates audible output from the input MIDI stream. Much like what normal sound cards did/do.
In short: something you can throw a MIDI file at and then you can listen to some sort of sound output.
I don't know if that exists. Maybe MIDI is dead.
