It says Click Find driver updates for hardware devices. Click Other hardware. In the Manufacturer name box, click Microsoft Corporation. In the Operating System box, click Windows 2000 Professional RTM. Click Search. Download the driver that is named "NEC usb software update released on June 01 2001."
i cant find 'find driver updates for h/w devices' there is the hardware link at the top of the page Could you point it out?
Actually W2k SP3 already includes the Microsoft USB2 driver. Whether there's a later version of the driver in SP4 I don't know.
The link I gave you is for using Windows Update Catalogue. Connect to Windows Updates, on the left, click Personalize Windows Update, tick the box on the right to include Windows Update Catalogue, click Save. Then you'll get the Windows Update Catalogue option on the left. Click that, and you'll understand what the link is talking about.
Whether it's USB1 or USB2, w2k sp3 should have the usb controller driver. What error message or problem in Device Manager are you encountering?
