SOURCE: cannot format hard drive
Memory is most likely not bad and Toshiba has a pretty good quality control on their laptops. Format it with the XP CD using the compatible but classic FAT 32 format then try installing 98 again. Possible that Win 98 doesn't know how to read that new of memory right in the format part of the installer. If it has a SATA hard drive, you might run into some trouble with SATA support when formatting down the road.

Yes, there is. Match the type of drive (Serial ATA or Parallel ATA) you get with what you have. Make sure your Satellite sees the drive in the BIOS. For drives larger than 120 GB, recommend operating systems Windows XP (Service Pack 2 or higher) or Vista. Older OS's have a 137 GB limitation (they only see the first 137 GB of the hard drive despite its size).

thanks for the clarification.
If the Ipod, which is essential a flash drive, works direct to the USB but the flash drive doesn't it's actually more likely that the flash drive has failed than any of the other possibilities. So, that being said, the next step is to plug the flash drive into a different computer and see if it works there. If it does let me know as there may be a driver problem on your computer, if it doesn't the flash drive has likely failed. If it has failed and there is nothing crucial on it, buy a new one they're inexpensive, if there is crucial data on it let me know and I will get you the contact info for a data recovery facility in your region(need to know your regoin as well). Regions being, North America, South America, Europe, etc.
Try this next step and let me know whether it works and I can advise you either way,
