Camera Driver Refresh

The full driver database exceeds 35Gb in size (35.1 Gb IMP). Please follow the guidelines below for optimal performance. This database release still covers Windows 7 through Windows 10 (64-bit only).

Note: As of the January 16, 2020, the full UIU driver database available for download from the web site will contain only drivers for supported 64-bit Windows operating systems, (Win8.1, & Win10). Requests for Windows 7 and also 32-bit support should be directed to UIU Support. Online Updates will continue to support both 64-bit as well as 32-bit support for Win8.1 and Win10.

Two static Windows 7 only driver databases will be made available on demand; one (based on DB-21-01-26) that contains no Nvidia drivers (all previous drivers are presumed to be compromised), and one (based on DB-20-12-29) that contains the Nvidia drivers as represented prior to Nvidia's Security Bulletin: NVIDIA GPU Display Driver - January 2021. Please contact UIU Support for more information.

Furthermore, no additional Windows 7 drivers will be added to the UIU Driver Database.
Firmware Updates

UIU Support strongly recommends making sure that firmware (BIOS/UEFI) on target hardware has been updated to the most recent release from PC manufacturers. As of 1st quarter 2020, UIU Support has noticed that this can be critical in the successful deployment of newer hardware in particular.

Additonal Information: Intel Processors Voltage Settings Modification Advisory

USB Flash drives need to be formatted with the NTFS file system before the driver database will successfully transfer. Network share access is recommended.

Support Reminder:

The Big Bang Support Team would like to remind our customers to please clear out any drivers represented in the Custom folder(s) prior to testing with a new version of the UIU Driver Database as neglecting to do so may result in false negative installations.  Please contact a UIU Support representative with questions or concerns.
