I used a Ultra USB 2.0 to IDE/SATA Cable Adapter.
I connected The HD directly to any USB port on XP PC and I transferred the full content of 98 hard drive into a different support.
Cost 30$ at Tigerdirect.ca

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!

well if you have a old laptop with a broken hinge or if its just old and you dont have a use for it. Before you trash it, make it into a digital picture frame,
supplies needed:

Plexi-glass

old laptop with good screen

screws, nuts, bolts, tools, dremel, what ever you decide to use

a little knowledge of computer parts

a usb extension cord for making the usb port on the side

a power jack for charging

perferably a disk drive

harddrive (which should be in the laptop

wifi card (optional) - wifi antennas

power cord

usb keyboard mouse combo (perferably one that only requires 1 usb adapter, otherwise you will need a usb hub)





simply, dissassemble the unit, add a usb receiver for a keyboard mouse combo, mount the parts(motherboard, screen, drive, harddrive, ram, heatsink, processor, fan, wifi card(optional) usb reciever for keyboard mouse combo, SCREEN INVERTER (OR UR SCREEN WILL BE DARK),etc, speakers) into a pelxi glass box which is easy to make, add some vents on the side for the fan, also add a usb port and a charger port, and a simple stand and you got a digital picture frame, you may also want to add a disk drive onto it. also good for playing dvds, internet (if u install a wifi card), music (if there are speakers in the laptop, install them into this), and much more!

also have fun with it, dont worry about breaking it, its a laptop you were going to trash anyways, just have fun with it

to add the power jack just plug a similar end into the port on the motherboard and connect a jack that fits the charger on the end and mount it (hot glue works) on the back out of the way, or on the side.

operating system info

also if it is a pre-2000 computer, then install the windows operating system, if its later then 2000 then you may want to install something called Ubuntu, its a linux distro, very handy, and its absoultly free, you can order a free disk with free shipping here https://shipit.ubuntu.com/

How to bypass gateway administration password windows vista


If you haven't upgraded to at least Win7 when the upgrade was offered from Gateway for just a few dollars, you really blew it. You need to call Gateway and if unavailable, try to locate a new Win7 operating system CD-Rom from a shop that HASn"T been used. Install the Genuine Microsoft Win7 CD-rom, after you back-up your harddrive into an external harddrive and install the upgrade to Win7. (We tekkies don't even bother with VISTA anymore... it was an unstable operating system that Microsoft lost a ton of money on.) If you need to figure out how to back your harddrive in a non-working PC or laptop, check my very thorough post (it's long) for Gateway that won't boot up.

Can i use my jazz dvx40 camera without the installation cd?


You can use the camera without the installation CD. The CD may contain some useful photo editing program and help you download the photos from the camera to your computer using the USB cable.

If your photos are stored on the memory card, then removethe memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader.Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of yourworking computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device oran external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card andcopy the photos to your computer.Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. Youcan copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off yourmemory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing anyprograms.

Device driver problem in Windows XP using a USB 2.0 device on a laptop with USB 1.1 controllers


Disable the USB 1.1 on-board option from the motherboard and install a 2 or 4 port USB 2.0 PCI/ISA card.

These cards are quite cheap these days and will do the trick rather than replacing the more expensive back up external hard drive ESATA/USB 2.0 hard drive.

Hi i work in a engineering company who have a old pc,it must be 20 years old nearly,its a compaq deskpro 386/20e,and i need to back it up,it has procim files and .ncf files,ive tried to back it up ,ive...


I have a customer were a similar problem, the machine is so old it will not support any new hardware and obviously the Windows version it is running will not support new software.
Because his machine is starting to fail the first thing I did was connect his harddrive to a more modern machine (XP) as a Slave and make what is known as an Image of his harddrive using Acronis True Image. Now we have a copy of the whole harddrive which can be copied onto another harddrive should the need arise like his harddrive failing.
This is great but what about the updated data? this image is only as uptodate as the day it was made. You can install a simple backup program that is not installed during the install of Windows 95,98 or ME but is available on the Windows CD.
You can find instructions here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/264541/en-us
You can download a free trial of True Image here:
http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/download/trueimage/
The machine I service is set to make a backup everyday and the woman who operates the machine burns a CD of the backup files once a week. Once a month I go and make another Image of the entire harddrive again.
Bear in mind if that machine is as old as you say the BIOS will probably not support a harddrive larger than 4gigabyte and any USB ports are likely to be USB1.1, so backing up to an external harddrive will be slow. You could try installing a Slave to the machine and running True Image on the machine then creating an image on the Slave harddrive.
