hi. i have a hp minibook with xp sp3. i need a step by step for the following:


On the XP SP2 disk you would have to look for

usbaudio.sy_

And that file would have to be copied using the following command:

expand [driveletter]:\I386\usbaudio.sy_ c:\windows\system32\drivers\usbaudio.sys ( i do not know what to do with this)

i downloaded the usbaudio.sys file but i can't do nothing with it.

i have a behringer uca200 sound card and xp sees an unknown device. but vista sees it.

help please. :confused:

Where'd you DL it from? It should normally be found in the c:\windows\system32\drivers folder.

It's located in the I386 folder located on the windows xp cd.

Make sure you're WINXP cd in inserted

Now use the following command:

Click Start > Run> Type: cmd

When the cmd window appears type these commands:

expand d:\I386\usbaudio.sy_ c:\windows\system32\drivers\usbaudio.sys

I only provided you the file just in-case you didn't have the installation cd but using the xp installation disk and using the command prompts I listed would be the best way to copy the file from the cd. It's a better approach and more efficient approach.

Yes insert the windows XP disk.
Next: Click Start > Run> Type: cmd (hit enter or click OK)

When the cmd window appears type this command:

expand d:\I386\usbaudio.sy_ c:\windows\system32\drivers\usbaudio.sys

by the way Victoria thanks for your time.

If you're opening the I386 folder browing the XP disk and looking for the file after you copy it to the drivers folder you have to rename the file ".sys" Just remove the "_" and add an "s" Which would change the file format to a .sys file. ;)

Hope this helps..

Can you run a search and make sure you deleted the file you downloaded for me while I look for another solution?

Not the windows file the one you downloaded. Retrieving the file from the xp cd and copying it to the system32/drivers folder via command prompt should fix this issue.
