Need Windows CE driver equivalent of drmk.sys RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was wondering if I could just copy and paste into Windows CE 5 program files from Windows Vista program files. I am trying to get a USB audio driver into my Cowon Q5W which runs Windows CE 5. I have the driver from my Vista PC. I'm a newbee and not a programmer so a little help would be very cool. Can I just copy and paste the driver into my Windows CE program files or does it need modification to work properly and not crash my system. I have all the driver details if necessary. It basically is a Generic USB Audio driver. Thanks in advance.

    It's a Windows Vista program file:

    C:\Windows\system32\drivers\drmk.sys

    Is there an equivalent of this driver for Windows CE 5? I'm trying to utilize a USB 2.0 host port for an external DAC.

  • You are in the right place.   No there is no equivalent - that is no USB DAC driver is provided by Microsoft.

    Well, this driver is designed by Microsoft... for Vista. How hard would it be to develop one and how much different is it actually from the Vista driver? Meaning, can the language of the Vista driver be slightly altered to work in embedded? I really have no idea how close the actual programming languages are so bear with me. But I, and about 75% of the audio community, would like to see this driver developed. Not kidding, it really would solve a lot of issues for many frustrated audiophiles on the go. If you can even imagine frustration in that hobby. :^) Some people, like myself, take it very seriously.. Thanks Bruce! But seriously, what can I do to make this happen?
