A Darlington is being used as a driver. So your statement is wrong, a Darlington is a driver.
Chill out I never said it was a good way to power this motor, read the thread. I was responding to the question asked in reply #3. What he asked would not work I was telling him what would work given what he had.
Now you are perfectly entitled to say that it is not the best was to drive the motor and point out the difficulties in getting the coil wires the right way round.
What you are not entitled to do is to say that what I advised would fry anything!
So the only rubbish here is your overreaction, to something that was correct.
OK, I over reacted, and your recommendation would not have been the best, but it could have worked.
in point of fact, I mis-read the OP and did not realize he wanted to use a specific board to drive the stepper.
the motor the OP has is a 5v, 50 ohm, 0,1 amp motor
the 8 wire is a 3.8v motor, about 1.25 amps, (assuming about 5 ohms) and is a comparative rocket ship to the 28BYJ motor.
so, as to the correct answer to the OP's question, the only answer is . yes, you can make the motor work.
as far as rubbish, I would propose that offering a very poor solution would be rubbish, at least on the level of my over reaction if not more.
The OP wanted to know if he could use what he has, and you tried to help him use what he had.
As for a transistor being a driver, well, that is like saying a 555 can be programmed and used like a programmable controller. it is semantics and my friend, I think we both have much better use of our times than to dance that dance.
now, if you want to really help, tell the OP how to identify the coil wires so that he can use the motor in this manner.
how to identify which phase the coils are on, and what polarity of each coil needs to be connected to the center tap.
just because a thing can be done, does not mean that anyone can do it, nor does it mean that it should be done.
