Since it is a 98, you can use a usb thumb drive, but you'll have to install the driver that comes with the drive. You could also use the floppy drive if it has one. You might have to use several if there's a lot of pictures.

Hope this helps!

How do i download photos from pc to digital photo frame

1. Connect the digital photo frame to an available USB port on the PC. Turn on the PC and the digital photo frame. Connect one end of the USB cable to the USB port on the digital photo frame (this end is usually smaller) and connect the other end to the USB port on the PC itself.

2. Wait for the PC to automatically detect the USB-connected digital photo frame.

3. Move any photo files that you want to display on the digital photo frame. Do so by copying and pasting each file into the connected USB device that you can view in "my computer". Many photo frames have built-in memory for this feature.

How to retrieve folder contents deleted during an uninstall

To recover pictures from your harddrive you can use the program found [here].

It's a try.before-you-buy program, so you have a couple of days to try it out for free before you have to buy it. I presume you don't need more time than that.

Before you download and install, think about using another harddrive to save the file to, and to install to, since installing it on the same harddrive as you stored your pictures on isn't so good. If your unlucky, the program can install on the same space on the harddrive as the pictures lay, and in doing so, make it harder to get back the pictures.

98fe pc problems

Connecting your old computer to your laptop is actually very easy.
You will need to go and buy an ethernet cable But. you must buy what is known as a "crossover" cable and NOT a normal straight cable. This cable will simply plug into the ethernet port on each machine allowing them to create a small simple network. You can use the "Create a small office or home network" wizard to do this or better still if you have an actual XP installation disk you can create the network using it.
This is an example of a crossover cable:

If your old computer doesn't have an ethernet port you can use a USB adapter to do the same thing.
You may need to buy an ethernet cable to go with the USB adapter, I have never used the USB adapter to this so I cannot comment on how easy or reliable it is.

If you find this a bit daunting let me know, we will have to speak directly about it, I am sure fixya would not be happy about me offering my services directly to a fixya client.

USB2 Problem Windows thinks My card is USB1.1

what do you mean when you say that the 4 USB2 ports are all occupied?
when you say that there are 2 USB1 ports on the back of the case: are those ports connected to the motherboard at all?

what devices are you using to test your USB ports? is it possible that those are USB 1 devices?
