Trust SC-5500p: Drivers for Windows 7/8/10 64bit

I still have an old USB soundcard lying around here, which is working quite well – a Trust SC-5500p.

This device works out out-of-the-box on Linux, but not so much on Windows 7 where it is only recognized by a default driver. This driver can’t handle more channels than stereo and the optical outputs of the card are ignored, too.

The website of Trust is only offering drivers for newer revisions of this card: 14134-02 and 14134-03. Drivers for the very first release (14134) are nowhere to be found.

After taking apart the card I easily recognized the soundchip inside: It’s a CM106-F, which is the predecessor to the CM6206. I needed a driver for that chip in the past and it’s still archived here.

The card does work with this driver, too. All I had to do was extract the setup.exe with a ZIP program and edit the following lines in the included cm106.inf:

;;;USB Product
%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106,	USB\VID_0D8C&PID_0006&MI_00
%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106,	USB\VID_0D8C&PID_0102&MI_00
%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106,	USB\VID_1B80&PID_D715&MI_00
%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106,	USB\VID_145F&PID_0090&MI_00

%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106X64,	USB\VID_0D8C&PID_0006&MI_00
%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106X64,	USB\VID_0D8C&PID_0102&MI_00
%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106X64,	USB\VID_1B80&PID_D715&MI_00
%CMIUSB.DeviceDesc%=USB106X64,	USB\VID_145F&PID_0090&MI_00

Each of the last lines in the sections adds the vendor/device id for the Trust soundcard and the driver can now be installed by running 7_Setup.exe. Even the C-Media control panel is working perfectly.

May it last long!

  1. Danke für die Mühe.
    Allerdings bekomme ich den Fehler “Bitte schließen Sie ein USB Multi-Channel Audio Device Gerät an!”

    Das Gerät arbeitet ja eigenlich auch out of the box unter Win 10. Aber ich wollte dennoch mal die Treiber installieren, weil der Mute-Button ohne Treiber keine Funktion hat.

    1. Sicher, dass du auch die “7_Setup.exe” ausgeführt hast? Mit der X_V_Setup.exe kommt dieser Fehler.

      Nachdem man die zwei Zeilen in die cm106.inf hinzugefügt hat, sollte die Karte erkannt werden. Es sei denn, deine Karte hat andere Nummern für VID und PID. Kriegt man über den Gerätemanager – Eigenschaften – Details – Hardware-IDs raus.

  2. Hallo,

    ich habe alles nach Anleitung gemacht, habe aber das Problem, dass keine 7_setup.exe da ist. Alle anderen setup.exe bringen Fehlermeldungen hervor.
    Wo soll sich diese Datei befinden?
