Both Microsoft and SanDisk stopped support for Windows 98 (that is the 1998 version of Windows) in the middle of 2008 (two years ago). So, if Windows 98 does not recognize the "plug-and-play" device (manufactured since the middle of 2008), then you'll have to upgrade your computer to Windows XP or Vista or 7, or use an "older" flash-drive that Windows 98 did support.

Hi, The BSOD (blue screen of death) usually means that a computer component has failed. This could be a hard disc drive, a memory module, the cpu, or the motherboard. I would start by checking out the hard drive first. See if it is spinning and not making any clicking sounds. Try replacing it if you have another one. Then check memory and cpu. Some people actually like having an old computer hanging around. They install Windows 98 in it so they can play old dos games and games that don't require a blazing fast processor! Good luck...Hank
You need to go to the www.dell.com/support and look for a down load for you particular PC OS and game. And also to the game site for a possible patch or download to help you. since We don;t have a lot of info on the game, You might just try this one yourself. If you can;t find what you need, come back with more info and I'll give it another try. Good Luck.
You don't need a windows 98 disk to install XP. It will load directly from your Cd drive. You have to set the bios to be the first boot disk. It is much easier to install XP on an empty drive than to upgrade.
Right well XP Pro really MUST be formatted with NTFS only...
I suggest you get a third party partitioning program like Partition magic and completely remove the partition & redo it all again & this time Format NTFS.
Or if ya have a WIN98 boot disk, and ya can use FDISK, Delete ALL partitions, and remake them again, using all the disk space, then format as NTFS, then proceed as below
Then using your windows XP PRO setup Disk, start the install ...then when asked about where you want the install located, select C & REFORMAT it AGAIN with the windows setup using again NTFS file system... this should finish & then the Install should "see" your entire hard drive and format it accordingly and then when finished you can proceede to install XP.
