Lack of XP drivers a big problem

March 28 2002-Consumers using Pinnacle devices are being asked to fork out €29 to pay for Windows 2000/XP drivers, causing rage on the firm's forum.
One user told the INQ that not only did they want him to pay the €29 to get a Studio 7SE CD to install DC+10 drivers – still in early beta, but the firm has also said the PC TV Pro drivers won't be free of charge either.
He said he wasn't sure whether he had to pay up for driver CD for this or just "trash his old Pinnacle PC TV Pro card" and buy a brand new one for what it may offer in the future.

OSR Driver Loader (V2.2)

New and Improved V2.2! Installing and starting NT kernel mode drivers can be a hassle. This is especially true during the development stage of a project, before you've built an attractive gui-based custom installation program. Now, OSRLOADER eliminates your trouble. This GUI-based tool will make all the appropriate registry entries for your driver, and even allow you to start your driver without rebooting. It's even got a help file, for goodness sakes! If you write drivers, this is another one of those utilities that's a must have for your tool chest. x86 architecture. Get it here.

OSR's DeviceTree Utility V1.0 (For NT)

Okay, this is for NT, not XP, but, you've never seen a utility like this. It's so cool, it's hard to describe. This utility lists every driver installed in the system, and for each driver, lists each device object created by the driver. It lists all the information about the driver, including the I/O function codes supported, the Fast I/O entry points supported, and the like. For each device, it lists all the information from the Device Object. For media devices, the VPB is shown, and the associated file system and file system instance device object are shown. If any device is attached, it shows the attaching device and its driver. As I said, it's so cool, it's hard to describe. If you're a file system or driver writer, you have to get this utility. Distributed as a .ZIP archive containing the executable image and its associated DLL. Get it here.

OSR's DeviceTree Utility V2.6 (New Rev!)

The greatest utility ever written by OSR master toolsmith and driver expert Mark Cariddi (and that's saying something)! This utility has two views: (a) one view that will show you the entire PnP enumeration tree of device objects, including the relationships among objects and all of the device's reported PnP characteristics, and (b) a second view that shows you the device objects created, sorted by driver name. There is nothing like this utility available anywhere else. It demystifies the Win2K PnP stack, and is an invaluable asset to driver debugging. Get it here.

Driver Protection List for Windows XP

The Driver Protection feature in the Windows XP Professional and Windows XP Home Edition operating systems protects operating system stability by preventing the operating system from loading drivers that are known to cause stability problems. Driver Protection is built upon application compatibility technology present in Windows XP. Driver Protection is active at all times—during operating system upgrades from prior versions of Windows and at runtime after the operating system is installed. Driver Protection is not intended to be disabled by end users.
Drivers known to cause stability problems are listed in a database included with Windows XP. Driver Protection checks this database, the Driver Protection List, to determine whether to load a driver under Windows XP.
Decisions to add drivers to this list are made in consultation with the vendors who produce and distribute these drivers. We engage and inform these vendors before adding a driver to the Driver Protection List. For more info on the list, how to update the list, etc go here.
