    Default A service installation section in the INF is invalid


    My son has an iRiver H10 20GC MTP player. His laptop _(Dell Inspiron Windows XP home; SP2) has blocked realizing it; but my desktop realizes it fine.


    In the Device manager on his laptop there is a yellow exclaiming mark. It has no drivers (code 28) and when I attempt to install them I get an error message:-


    I contacted iRiver who sent me Firmware and said that would sought out the problem; but it has not (nor did I think it would as the H10 workd fine on my desktop.


    I then followed this thread from the Dell forum. Just a detection issue and your pc just needs to recognize it again ..... Like I said on your thread in the Dell forums:


    Just wanted to make sure that you did the following steps:


    Connect the 'bad' Ditty Open up Device Manager. Locate the 'bad' Ditty, right click and selected Properties On the Driver tab click on Update Driver.


    Depending on how many updates you have for Windows a message may appear saying to connect to Windows Update, select No, not at this time and click Next Choose the option for Install from a specific location (Advanced), click Next Choose the option to Don't search. I will select the driver to install, click Next Click on Have Disk
    Browse to: C:\WINDOWS\inf . Here I was capable to browse to C:WINDOWS\inf but not within the folder so I could not execute the remainder.


    Move on wpdmtp , Move on open up button and Select MTP Device Click on Next button. It will set up the necessity stuff and hopefully your song will work .Therefore I went on to do this but to no available. Otherwise you can go into the registry:


    The driver on my GOOD desktop is wpdusb.sys. As a said, there is no driver on my sons BAD laptop and whenever I try to set up one using the Device Manager Troubleshooter I acquire the same.


    Please can you help?

    I had similar trouble when setting up USB network device on my machine with windows XP. I was acquiring same error "a service installation portion in this inf is invalid."

    What i did was i opened the .inf driver file, went to "XP" section of the driver skipping 98,ME, 2000 portions and then saw a line "ServiceBinary = %12%\usb8023.sys" when i went to windows\system32\drivers folder, i saw that there was an existing file usb8023x.sys so i replaced the line in the .inf driver file which i had (of course backed up original one) and changed the line to usb8023x.sys from usb8023.sys and then tried providing the same driver again and Wooohaaa.

    It worked. Right now my devices works awesome. This is 100% working fix, let me know if it works for you which i am sure will.....

    Worked for me. I'm utilizing a "stripped to the bone" version of XP Pro, and it's been occurrence on my camera driver. (Kodak C633 Easyshare). It was appearing on usbscan.sys. I had copied it to the /system32/ folder, but the %12% stands for /system32/drivers worked like a charm. (for my problem. Thanks!)

    I first posted this trouble in October; attempted a few fixes but have been away from it for six months - apologies! My son's return home has ignited my interest (and exasperation!).

    I opened up the folder Windows\inf - a "hidden folder" (yes?) I could unseen anything called .inf driver still there was drvindex, drvindex.PNF, drvmcdb, drvmcdb.PNF

    The PNF files ask for a program to open then with; the other two open in the usual way (right click and then open from the drop-down menu). In my windows\system\system32\drivers folder there is a file usb8023.sys AND usb8032.sys. Still in neither drvindex nor drvmcdb could I watch either or the entry "ServiceBinary - = %12%\usb8023.sys"

    I had a trouble with a 2 RS232 PCMCIA card not setting up - it used to set up perfectly. It turned out the following line was wrong in the .inf file. ServiceBinary = %12%\oxser.sys

    The file this refers to was in capitals in the installation folder. I wouldn't have thought it would matter but I changed the file name and I'm back up and running the card.

    Setting up this framework worked for me. My 2GB Sansa Express functioned fine out of the box, but randomly began affording me the similar error. Afterwords setting up this, not only did it work again, but it today shows up as a portable device instead of only a removable disk.

    To someone, and all they said was "Oh, Its defective, return it" which tells me they know absolutely nothing, because the problem was not with the player, it was with the computer. I spend over 4 hours on the computer before coming across your solution that worked. Thanks, now I don't require to return it.

    If you have attempted to link your portable instruments and it has failed to set up with the error: "A service installation section in the INF is invalid", only download and set up this file, (which i did) and then re-link your device. If it stills fails, then go to Device Manager, select your device (which should have a yellow mark on it) and click on Update Driver, just follow the prompts and it will finally be recognized and correctly installed.

    It has worked for me. I have been attempting to link my Samsung Vibrant (Android phone from T-mobile) to my PC (windows xp sp3) to the Kies (Media sync software) and was always acquiring this error, now , after setting up the referred file it works!!!

    If you were not able to browse files inside C:\Windows\inf, you may not have selected the right options in the Hardware Wizard... at least, that was my problem the first time I tried this.

    After selecting to "Install from a specific location (advanced)", choose "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install". On the undermentioned display, click the "Have Disk" button. Browse to C:\Windows\inf and select the file marked "wpdmtp.inf"

    I can't believe the generic players have such crummy provide when hence many people have this trouble! I think the Windows file trouble might be caused by "compressing old files" when you do a disk cleanup.
