All you need to do is download this file, USBSTOR.sys. This version is taken from Windows XP. Rename the original just in case.
The file goes in C:/Windows/system32/drivers/
Hope this helps a bunch of you!
When I went to the page, It said “folder not found” and the file didnt appear
Or you cannot rename the USBSTOR.sys file, as happened to me.
I had copied the dang file twice to C:/Windows/system32/drivers/ and it still wouldnt recognize the dingoo. So I went the other route and got the driver by downloading the dualboot zip and pointing to the unzipped folder when installing the driver.
But, that stil didnt work.
I went back to the system32/driver folder to try deleting the usbstor.sys file and what do I see.
So it turns out I never replaced the original usbstor.sys file in the first place.
Well, I couldnt delete the original, windows wouldnt let me, I couldnt rename it, because windows wouldnt let me.
so I downloaded UNLOCKER, and it let me rename the usbstor.sys file, which I did, then I just removed the -2 from the other file, and deleted the third one I installed.
After that I restarted my computer, and plugged in my dingoo, windows found it and said the hd needed to be checked for consistency. so I let it, and also checked the box to repair any bad sectors.It found my dingoo, as well as my 16gb microsd card that was in the dingoo.
It took like two minutes to do a drive check, and thats it. It saw the dingoo as one hd, and the sdcard as another drive.
Also, just as an fyi, I am running Vista sp2.
I hope that helps somebody, because that was my missing link.
If I had just replaced the usbstor.sys file correctly to begin with I would have saved myself a ton of headaches and resets.
Here is the link to UNLOCKER.
Hello everybody , after searching a solution to close all security on vista to install usbstor without sucess, i have take the luck to check on windows update to the microsoft website and surprise there a patch.
Download on microsoft website this file: Windows6.0-KB971035-x86.msu
After installed it , my dingoo was perfectly reconised without any problem ans-d solve another compatibility on usb device.
I followed your steps and it really works!!
As much as you could consider this a, “solution” this is not acceptable, where are the vista/7 drivers at? XP was released 9 years ago, and two new operating systems have been released since. I can’t get the device to read under Linux, or Vista, when is some real support for this device going to come out? I’ve spent quite a bit of time browsing to forums and I have yet to find a solution to actually get this working correctly. Has anyone any ideas besides using XP? I do not own an XP machine, I haven’t in years. Anybody at all?
I can confirm that this does indeed work. If you have Vista 64-bit, you will need this link:http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=1088
im no XP user no for quite some time now, and plug ins, add ons, and other systems are quite unreadable nowadays. maybe hackers are not as effective now as much as before. but what the heck, if we all stick to spontaneous and working stuff, we dont have any problem.
This stuff does not work for me!
Windows 7 Professional(Original Product), is on my computer, 32 bit.
rewrote the file, but does’nt change, NO recognize the USB!
Please, somebody help me, because I can not use my Dingoo!
I can’t get this working on windows 7.
The drivers are there but it asks me to format everytime and format always fails.
It also says the size of the device is 62mb??
That worked great! Thanks a lot.
Does anyone out there have a copy of the 64-bit version of Windows 7 RTM that they could share a copy of the USBSTOR.SYS file from? I think that’s the only way I’ll be able to get my Dingoo to connect on my Windows 7 machine.
I can confirm that Windows 7 32 bit and 64 bit commercial release versions will see Dingoo no problem.
Only the beta and RC versions had this unsigned driver issue.
Damn! Unlocker does not work on 64 bit systems!!! Does anyone know a similar tool which can unlock the USBSTOR.SYS? Help me please!
Win 7 RTM seeing my Dinggoo A320 with no problems.
Is there a way to transfer a dingoo programing from one dingoo to the other?
I have crazy issue. I have two dingoos.
One has a broken r button but runs dingux!
The other dingoo has a working R button but i cant seem to flash dingux on it. It has some strange issue where it says firmwarE failure and it wont run dingux. it seems to a rising issue amgonst new dingoo owners.
JUST AS NOTE OF WHAT I HAVE DONE TO THE DINGOO WHO CANT RUN DINGUX, YES I HAVE REFLASHED THE ORGINAL FIRMWARE USING BOTH RECOVERY TOOL AND DUAL BOOT, YES HAVE USED BOTH INSTALL METHODS, ONE FROM COMPLETE IDIOTS GUIDE TO INSTALLING DINGUX AND THE USBTOOL.EXE METHOD, AND YES I HAVE THE CORRECT LCD IMAGE AND NEWEST DUAL BOOTER, i HAVE FLASHED MY CARD MUTIPLE TIMES, AND REFROMATED THEM AND EVEN USED DIFFERENT CARDS.
IF YOU WANT TO SEE PICTURES GO HERE TO THIS FORUM FROM ANOTHER PERSON WHO HAS SAME ISSUE
BUT MY REAL QUESTION IS “IS THERE A WAY TO TAKE MY DINGOO’S (THAT RUNS DINGUX) SYSTEM PROGRAMING TO TRANSFER IT TO MY NEW DINGOO (THAT DOESNT RUN DINGUX)? BASICALLY TRADE OUT ITS FIRMWARE AND SYSTEM CONFIG! OR IS THERE A EASY WAS TO TRANSFER R BUTTONS?
Instead of posting this as a comment for something which has very little to do with what you’re asking why don’t you just create your own topic in the forums? It’ll probably get more attention there too. So could you please delete this? It really is quite irrelevant.
i have im just flooding every one to get a response quicker
well i doubt that’ll help. just be patient. we all have lives we have to go live.
OMG!!!!! It really works as instructed. As mentioned in the reply, just rightclick the original USBSTOR.sys in WIN 7 and use unlocker to force rename it as USBTOR.BAK or whatever name you want then replace it with the downloaded USBTOR.sys and now it works like a charm. I am using Build 7100 Win 7 RC fyi.
copied new usbstor file into win/system32/driver location
Dingoo not recognized still in vista sp2
when i plugged dingoo in it wanted drivers for Jz4740_usb so i installed them.
All device manager says is “USB mass storage device” but with an error it seems
so what’s my problem with it not working? should i find drivers for something else? Anyone with vista 32 how did it work for you?
It worked for me at the first try.
Did you use Unlocker to rename the existant usbstor.sys into something like usbstor.bak first?
Because only then, you will be able to copy the XP version into the directory.
i’m using windows 7 build 7100 but the driver instalation failed. i have a winxp vm just for dingoo operations, but i get lazy about having to start it and then i give up dingoo’ing.
What do you mean by failed? First replace the file then plug the dingoo in and it should recognize it properly. If you did not replace the file it won’t be able to install the device.
I’ve done everything the instructions have been posted. I get an error 10 unable to start device after replacing the file with the xp file usbstor.sys. Using Vista 32 bits and service pack 2. Tried uninstalling the device multiple times but will not work.
I just got my Dingo A320 with v1.1 firmware. And I heard about all the problems with Windows 7, but I decided to try it all the same with my Windows 7 RTM machines.
I had no problems accessing the A320 as either a USB Mass Storage Device for copying files, or installing the Boot mode driver to flash it for multi boot.
What problems are you guys facing?
It works with Windows 7 Build 7000, but anyone using a build newer than that will have problems. The device is not recognized and the dingoo freezes when plugged into the USB port. It gets stuck on the startup screen and the reset button must me pushed.
It also works on later Builds ut on the actual RETAIL version of Windows 7 which is RTM 7600 works perfectly fine, just as plug & play
Mines x64 Ultimate, no issues
The only version that had issues was RC 7100(not sure of later in between version before 7600)
I am using vista 32 bits with service pack 2. Followed the instructions and replaced the usbstor.sys file. I get an error code 10 not able to start device. My computer won’t even recognize that the dingoo device is attached to the system.
I was having problems on 64 bit vista and downgraded if you will back to 32 bit and got it running again. My old web hosting box ran Windows NT and it took me a few years to upgrade to server edition.
If you tried it with SP2 earlier and it tried to install it as something else you might have to go into Device Manager and uninstall it so it will be installed with the new driver. If not then I’m sorry I have no clue. Someone else might though.
If you are having trouble renaming the original or replacing it try using this program:
Thanks! I will try when I get home but I don’t think it will work for Vista or Windows 7 64 bit
Yeah well, it works great for me on Vista 32 SP2
Thanks a lot !
