Hey people.
Hope someone can help...I'm going crazy.

I've just bought a digital camera but I can't install it through USB cuz the
install wizard can't find a file named "Filter.SYS".
I've found something on the net describing what I have to do to install it,
but I don't understand what it says. Can someone maybe explain it to me??

Here's what it says:

"Installing a WDM (Windows Driver Model) filter driver for a USB device
requires that just a few lines be added to the .INF file, which is used to
install its primary device driver. In the example .INF file provided (Listing
1), FILTER.SYS will be installed as an "upper" filter driver to SESUSB.SYS.
Three things need to be accomplished by these additional lines to the .INF
file. First, the filter driver image itself, FILTER.SYS, must be copied to
the %systemroot%\system32\drivers folder. Second, an entry must be added to
the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services to
define the filter driver as a service. Finally, a registry value must be
added to the entry within
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Enum/USB for these particular USB
Vendor ID and Product ID values. This is to specify that there is an upper
filter driver that must be loaded into the device driver stack for this
particular device. (This .INF file was tested with FILTER.SYS, which is the
sample USB filter driver provided in the Microsoft DDK)."

Can anyone help??? Don't know where to begin :-(

Hugs from Christina.
