USB Memory stick

Hi Mark wonder if you can help, my computer is quite old using win 98 operating system but for the amount I use it it's not worth me investing 3 - 500 £ upgrading Do you know of any usb memory sticks available for this operating system?

Sandisk usually sells memory sticks that are backward comaptible with win 98, but more than likely you will have to go to their website to find the driver because it will not be included. I have a 256 MB memory stick from sandisk that also has a driver for win98. I know this because I've used it on a win 98 machine. Once again, I had to go to the support page on the Sandisk website to find the driver.

As for the upgrade, you can probably upgrade to XP for $200 or less, without having to upgrade hardware.

    • 1 Visit the Sony Support site (see Resources) and download the Sony memory card software. You will need to specify your operating system. Save the file to your desktop.
    • 2 Double-click the downloaded file to launch the installer.
    • 3 Follow the onscreen instructions to install the Sony memory card software. Restart the computer after completion. Once the computer starts back up, it will recognize the Memory Stick Pro Duo when inserted into the computer's memory card reader. You can browse the files using Windows Explorer or the installed x-Pict Story software.

I have been given a memory stick with photos on and my computer says it cannot find a driver


Microsoft 98 don`t support plug and play - that means to run a memory stick on a 98 computer you need to install the drivers for that particular stick . Win xp and later version support plug and play - that mean without a driver installtion of stick the memory stick will work
You can use the same stick on xp or later version - it will work fine
happy xp :-)

I have a usb port on my toshiba satellite 2520cds that will communicate with a printer usb cord but not my usb stick what can I do to update the hardware - if that's what I need to do?


USB on Win 98 is tricky as it didn't come with native USB support. If you have 98SE then USB should work okay. You will most likely have to install driver software for your USB stick to get it working (should be able to get it from the USB stick manufacturer's website).
