Ok the file system on windows 98 is called FAT, the file system on newer cmputers is called NTFS, It is forward compatibility but not backword. You need to put in a USB flash Drive also called a thumb drive or stick drive into the win98 machine and check for harware changes using these suggestion.
1. insert the flash drive into usb port 2. right click on "My Computer" > Manage - The Computer Management window popsup. 3. Select Disk Management 4. Locate your Flash Drive at the bottom where it starts with "Disk 0" which is your Hard Drive. 5. Your Flash Drive should say something like "Disk 1, removable", to the right it should have a blue line which means it's a primary partition. 6. If it has a Black line, then it means that the Flash Drive has not been partitioned. To fix this do this: 7. Right click on the black line. It should give you an option to partion it. 8. Go ahead and partition it to FAT or NTFS which ever option you can get or want. 9. Once it is finished, then you will be able to read and write from the Flash Drive.
Let me know if it does not work or if you are having problems.
I think this is a Windows 98 forum. If so, I may have a solution.
Download and install this free (Generic Storage USB Device) driver named "wtgenusb-zip" from DriverGuide.com. Register with DriverGuide.com for free membership. Use their search tools using keywords like "Window 98", "USB", "Storage" and look for "wtgenusb-zip".
It's a rediculously small file to download, only 11Kb. The "zip" file must be extracted which can be done on any computer running Windows XP, then copy the files over on a floppy disk. However extracting it on a computer running Windows 98 will require a seperate program like "Winzip" or "Pkunzip" (for DOS).
Copy the extracted files to any folder of your choice on your Win98 machine. Use the "Install Hardware Wizard" to navigate to that folder to install the driver to enable your USB storage device.
WTGENUSB worked great for me, permitting my Win98 to access my USB Flash drives, 250Gb Portable hard drive, and Digital Camera card reader. Good luck.
hey you know what go to
c:/windows/system32/drivers (copy the folder 'cause is there where are the principal drivers when you need to install in another computer you can use it, just to prevent if you can't find the installation disk
Well, Occam's razor philosophy! I just tried on my 250 Gb IOMEGA external HDD on Win98 and it worked. "Mass storage" jargon driver does NOT work. HOWEVER if you declare it as "USB FLASH DISK", it WORKS, (after computer reboots), though not that speedy. Anyway, you can do your job. Now if you have found any better solution, please forward it at email@example.com. Thank you!
Floppy Disk???? How old is this mouse?
It 'should' have drivers for Win98 and such on the floppy. Did you look?
Are you running WinXP?
If no drivers for your Operating System on the disk, you need to download the driver software for the OS you have.
Go online to the Mfg. website and search for drivers for your Mouse and your OS.
