Well, there is a solution, but it depends how comfortable you are with computers. I assume you have a driver to use it under windows 98, and I'm hoping it's a cd burner, and that you have XP install disk.

You would need to use a program called nLite or another similar one, but this is the only one I've personally used. Just googled for it and you'll find instuctions on their site. You will be using that program to copy your XP install CD to your harddrive, integrating the needed drivers with it, and then burning a new bootable XP install CD that includes the needed drivers.

    I apologize, I guess I assumed the driver issue was when you were installing XP. What is the brand and model number of both the usb to sata connecter and the drive you are connecting to it?

Hi..

Windows 98 does not support Plug n Play Devices. So you have to download appropriate drivers from Microsoft Website. Though Windows 98SE ( Windows 98 Second Edition ) thought to be support USB Mass Storage Drives fairly, these drivers are not pre-installed with OS. You have to download Service packs to install these drivers.

Since Windows 98 have TWO versions, we have to download corresponding service packs .

You can
Download Service Packs for Windows 98 Here

Download Service Packs for Windows 98 SE (Windows 98 Second Edition) Here

Thank You.

How can I put wireless adaptor on win 98 first edition


Good luck.

The first edition of Windows 98 lacked support for many devices. Windows 98 Second Edition added some support.

Can you find a "Windows 98 Second Edition Upgrade" CD-ROM and
license-key?


Search for a wireless-adapter that *CLEARLY* states that it is supported on Windows 98 SE.

It's time to "trash" that computer.

Find somebody who has an older Pentium 3 or Pentium 4 computer that is running Windows XP, and buy that computer from them.
