    Can't because admin rights. Everyone that is cool with the admin is allowed to have admin rights but because I don't kiss his ass I can't have them. All I want to do is install the drivers for my USB Iomega 250 drive so I can bring in some MP3's. Not like I'm gonna bring the network down, it's the same friggin thing as a floppy driver.

    Is there any way to install this or get around the restriction?

    No it doesn't, but I believe that iomega's driver can enable their devices on USB ports under NT..

    Driver does support NT, but I too was under the impression NT didn't support USB.

    parallel port is controlled with a scsi driver under nt, but i have never seen a usb port used on nt. nice if it was developed, but i have yet to see that

    correct..it just maps scsi commands over the interface. That's probably what it does over USB as well, regardless of OS.

    I thought NT was like 95b. It was miss on 95% of USB devices.
