SOURCE: win98se i did it ... HERE'S HOW

OK, I bought this Western Digital MyBook 500 GB Essential Edition too, and could not get it to work with Windows 98 SE.

I followed the above instructions, but my version of windows was missing even the drivers suggested above! UGH!

HOWEVER, I found ANOTHER SOLUTION. I installed USB 2.0 drivers for mass storage and the the MY BOOK icon popped up on my Windows 98 SE machine. Hurray! Hurray! Hurray!

Here are the drivers from this british webpage:

Good luck to all you frustrated folks scooping your info off Windows 98 machines!

SOURCE: transfering photos to my Iomega Prestige 500GB Portable Hard Driv

Does the Iomega show up under 'my computer'?
It should be another drive (D, E, F whatever) and as such you put stuff on to it the same way you would put stuff on to your C drive.

I cannot open my portable usb 2.0 500GB harddisk pls help me to solve it ... thk you


Portable hard drives are extremely useful. Make sure you have both HD cords connected correctly One coming from your HD to your PC and the other as a power cord. From there, you should simply click "Start" go to "My Computer" and your external drive should show up right there.
