Before We Start

Before we start doing anything I'd like make a few things clear;

1. I have already installed the drivers on my PC so "EMS Inter-Link Cable" is displayed instead of "USB Device".

2. I am also using the file "GC Menory Adaptor V2.1(1).exe" taken from EMS Production Limited.

3. The following files are included in the .exe file;

Config.ini
EM3LINK.inf
EM3LINK.sys
GC adaptor.txt
GC USB memory adaptor.txt
GCIF.dll
GCZHUP.exe
Skins
default
Mysterious Skin
Natural Skin
Skyblue Skin

4. I have unpacked the files from "GC Menory Adaptor V2.1(1).exe" to D:\My Documents\Craig's\GC USB Memory Adaptor.

Installing the USB drivers

STEP #1
After you've inserted the USB cable into your PC and connected it to your memory card you'll notice the found new hardware box appear on your screen.


STEP #2
After the found new hardware box appears the found new hardware wizard will start. You will be asked what do you want the wizard to do? Select install from a list or specific location (advanced).


STEP #3
Select search for the best driver in these locations and check include this location in the search. Click the browse button and find the folder where you installed the files from "
GC Menory Adaptor V2.1(1).exe". The default folder name is "GC Menory Adaptor V2.1". The folder name has a typo and should say GC Memory Adaptor V2.1.


STEP #4
After you click the next button you should see a hardware installation window appear saying the drivers may not be compatible with Windows XP. The drivers do work so ignore this box and click continue anyway.


STEP #5
Windows XP may install the drivers on its own, but if not a files needed window will appear asking to find the file "EM3Link.sys". This file is located in the folder "GC Menory Adaptor V2.1". After you click the OK button Windows XP will have successfully installed the drivers for the USB Memory Card Adapter.


Using the USB Memory Card Software

When you first start the USB Memory Card Software "SAVER FAVORITE(for gamecube)" you will see a screen that will look something like the picture. I will explain the functions of the software below.
