Windows XP 32bit
The drivers to connect the Huawei Ascend Y511 to a Windows PC are below. These drivers can be used to flash the firmware to a stock ROM removing bloatware and unlocking more potential.
If you connect your Y511 without using the drivers, it will just charge your phone, or it may come up as a mass storage device so you can backup photos etc. So if you only want to do a backup or charge your phone don't install the drivers.
This driver for the Intel 82371SB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller Driver is required for many USB disk drive devices like the Iomega Zip drives and other devices. The driver does support up to Windows XP and Server 2003 but later operating systems should not need to have a driver installed as it is included. Install this driver with extreme caution as it is a base system driver. As always backup your data before installation.
Iomega Zip drives were the choice for expanded external storage in the 90’s and early 2000 because alternatives were 1.44MB floppy disks that were becoming a problem due to the nature of files and multimedia need much more space. CD writers were available at the time but were slow and un-reliable at times. Also Zip drives were much cheaper to purchase, however the disks for the Zip drivers were expensive compared to CDRW discs. Storage is 100MB, 250MB & 750MB hence the 3 models that have each number. New models are backwards compatible with smaller size disks.
