Need a driver for USB2 external hard drive to work with Win98SE
I have a PC that runs on Windows 98SE Op Sys. I have recently purchased an external hard drive that has a USB2 connection. I need a driver to make the new drive work on my system. Where can I get it? How can I get the external hard drive to work on my PC?

not for 98SE i believe. a great OS but MS most likey deleted those from their servers long ago. if you can find someone else who has a system with 98SE you may be able to copy and install them from them. someone who is really old and smart "CE" maybe could program them:) for you but, you should have backed up your system and drivers before this repair was needed
Hello there, it seems you broke the TCP/IP stack, i recommend, remove all networking components in Control Panel -> network and reinstall all of them, second i strong recommend upgrade to a new S.O. Win9x have several security flaws easy exploited by bad guys what can not be fixed.
all drivers for winMe are ok. use google with "MBcode win98se drivers download" . You may try with winme instead win98se . You'll encounter problems if your mb is very old and you need to properly install isa cards .
win98se,mb drivers, sound, video,lan in this order. dont forget that win98se accepts drivers from 95/98/ME . Them must have the inf file . I liked to made manual instalation of every drive (update driver, browse to location of inf file....).
change the boot sequence in bios set up ... keep in this order first boot device as floppy 2.hard disk 3.cdrom
then save it and then have a check it should work .. you have not mention hard disk here so i think the hard disk is not detected there may be some loose contact inside and it is not connected properly so it is not able to verify DMI pool ... if so connect the hard disk properly then then have a check it will surely work..........
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
