type BASE2.CAB in search, click on it and find USBMPHLP.PDR
right-click and choose Extract. It will ask you where you would like to save the file to, select C\:PROGRAM FILES\CREATIVE\WDM_INST

You can right click on My Computer from your desktop, then go to the Device Manager, click on Universal Serial Bus Controllers to expand, then look to see if there are any conflicts (or green question marks)with your usb devices. If so, right-click on the conflicting device, and choose Properties. Click on Driver, then Update Driver. it should find the driver you extracted and placed in C:\PROGRAM FILES\CREATIVE\WDM_INST

Even if you no longer have your Win 9x/ME disk, this should work because there are drivers that are put in places you may not think of looking and will not show up in SEARCH unless you extract them and place them in the proper spot.
You can try going to the Microsoft website and typing in the name of the driver you are looking for and it will give you a page that will tell you where to look for the driver. For instance, I needed USBMPHLP.PDR and I found out it is in BASE 2.CAB
I looked in BASE 2.CAB, and sure enough, it was there. I then right-clicked it to expand, then choose where to save it.
Common spots for "hidden" drivers to be found are C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\INSTALL

hope this helps! play with these until there are no longer any conflicts or question marks in you device manager (assuming there are), then try the problem usb device, it should work.

: I am trying to install device drivers for my Sony PC30 digital camera in a Gateway computer (OS: Windows Me). It requires three files that are missing from my cmputer:
: 1) usbntmap.sys
: 2) usbstor.sys
: 3) usbmphlp.pdr

: I dowloaded the first two files from usbman website. But I can't find the third file anywhere. Neither Gateway tech support nor Sony tech support was able to help me on this matter. If you have any informtion about usbmphlp.pdr file, please reply. Thank you very much.
