Need to backup content of Windows 98 computer via USB device

I have a win 98 computer with hundreds of documents and photos (mainly) needing backup. All the external drives and automatic devices I look at require win XP or higher. I have the old USB that came with it not the later fast ones. Any way to do this easily?

Install XP next to win 98 on a separate partition, XP will automaticlly create a bootoption. If not possible, install XP over win98. documents etc will remain intact if you have enough diskspace.

If both are no option, create a backup from windows98 and than copy that one to any USB drive. Backing up from 98 takes veryvery long and so doesn copying to USB.

I'm tryin to install the sierra wireless card 598 on win 98 manually. Does anyone know how to do


Hello sir, hi, installing a USB device on windows 98 is kinda hard but possible. here are some things that you should do:
  1. you may need the sierra CD device driver that comes with your wireless card.
  2. next is that your PC should support USB 1.1 or 2.0. If you are using windows 98, make sure that your USB port is working fine, you can insert a flash drive to confirm if your usb port is working.
  3. depending on the setup files they may need you to plug in the device as the setup file loads the driver or later.
  4. run the sierra CD setup file to install your wireless card. (hope win 98 supports this device)
  5. after the setup, plug in your wireless USB device, windows 98 should detect it.
If things didnt work out as listed above, do it setup several times, ............ still no progress call your dealer for proper installation on your PC.

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

Go to  http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php  and read it carefully.  Download the correct version of nusb and follow the installation instuctions to the letter!  Be prepared to spend a little time identifying any software in your Add/remove list that you don't recognize - don't guess - and remove USB devices from Safe Mode, to be certain you don't miss any.
If your mobo is USB 2.0 capable, you should now have it; if it's not, at least you'll have a generic USB 1.1 facility.  You should not need to remove viewer or album software, just the USB drivers and devices, but if you're of a nervous disposition, backup your system before you start!
