Windows 98 on dell inspirion d600 install problem


Installing Windows 98, is you need a start-up disk (floppy disk) first before you can use the Windows 98 cd. The start-up disk will perform the partitioning and formatting of the HD...doing this, you have to boot from floppy drive first---after partitioning and formatting, you have change again the boot sequence to boot from cd then you can start the installation of Windows 98.

My Denon hd 2500 will not recognize my 500gig HD


first of all , 500gig its a lot and its not recomend to used such a large hd, second, the hd probably its not format in FAT32, mostly of the external hd came format in ntfs, but all the media player such ipods or dvd media players or even the dn2500 used fat32 format, so you need to copy all your music to another hardrive and format the 500 gigs to fat 32, but in my opinion you should organice better your music i dont thing you ever will used 500gigs and the data base its so large that it will take forever to load.

Up-grade


you *might* be able to find a better video card, or more ram, or even a faster cpu for $20 on ebay, but a computer that old is more in need of replacement.

Need help transfering data from IBM Aptiva to Dell computer


Sounds like the older computer is a 98 machine - Data Traveler does not have 98 drivers due to its size. Your best bet is to find a smaller flash drive that is 98 compatible - or depending on the size of the data you could e-mail it to yourself.

Slave Drive not recog in my computer but it is disk management with no drive letter


A quick thing to try Is
remove the 80gb from ide cable and power plug and set the 20gb back as master.
boot into windows from 20gb 1 time ,
then shut down hook the 20gb as a slave and the 80 back up as master
Allow windows to find new hardware , "watch closely down by clock ". It will tell you when windows has finished and will say you might need to reboot before new hardware will work properly
After rebooting Both should show inside My computer
Good Luck I hope this helps

IBM Aptiva and verizon DSL


OK Win98 doesn't play well with USB, when Win98 came out USB was very new, and NOT supported properly untill Win98SE... and even then it is a pain and real problematical. I would suggest you get a Ethernet connected DSL modem.. Else ya gonna have no end of problems regardless of what ya do including "Flashing" I think that model PC has Ethernet built in? otherwise get a PCI Ethernet Card and use that instead of USB.. ya be good to go. I would also upgrade if possible to Win98SE PLUS install ALL Updates there are still Win98 suport on the net, simply Google for it.. good Luck.
