Hi,
I recentl installed xp sp3 rc2 on my flash drive and cleared out the driver cache to make room for programs. I am now running into an issue installing my sound card's driver. Is there a way to recover the driver cache? If so, how?
Thanks

Hmm, you could extract the SP3 into a folder (run its executable with the "/x" switch) and then copy the driver.cab and sp3.cab from that folder back to %systemroot%/Driver Cache/i386. This is only an idea though, I haven't tested it and can't say for sure if it'll work.

Find also the folowing files, related to audio:

aec.sys (acoustic audio canceler)
kmixer.sys (Kernel Mode audio mixer)
splitter.sys (Kernel audio splitter)
wdmaud.sys (Wave MIDI api mapper)

that should be on windows\system32\drivers and copy them to: \WINDOWS\Driver Cache\i386\

If the file are missing also in windows\system32\drivers, you have to extract them from SP3.



An alternative approach (NOT TESTED !) could be the installation of windows media pack KB886540, but it installs some other components that you don't need... and fills your flash drive.
