Let us know the manufacturer ,model no,gb of the pen drive you are using so that we can direct you using proper drivers for windows 98..I will suggest you to install windows xp as it don't require any drivers for pen drive ,it install it automatically...but still if you want to go with windows 98 and want to download drivers then let us know more information regarding the pen drive...
Its a common problem with the pendrive, in windows. some time it doesnot detect or not showing clearly that device. you have to check your pendrive manufacturer and driver details. and also check it out driver signing.
Do you have mapped network drives on your computer? If you have this
may cause your problem. When you insert the PEN Drive into USB and
the "safely remove hardware" icon appers try to right-click on it and
choose "eject" or "remove" (don't remember :), then pull the PEN
DRIVE from the USB and connect it again. Go to Windows Explorer and try
to open all your mapped drives, then the content of your PEN DRIVE
must be loaded into your Windows Explorer. This is happened sometimes,
because PEN DRIVE try to assign the first free drive letter after
your phisical drive letters, and if you have a mapped drive letter, the PEN DRIVE assign one of them.
Windows 98 is not capable of recornizing the mass storage devices, but windows 2000 and XP, vista has the capability to automatically recognize the USB mass storage devices.
Thats why your Windows 98 is not recognizing. So, to use the mass-storage device like your pen drive you have to install device driver to your windows 98 system for your pendrive.
If you don't have the driver, then goto pendrive manufacturer site, there you can found the driver for your pen-drive for windows 98, download it, and install on your windows 98 system..... n njoy,,... :))
