W98SE Driver for Kingston 1.0Gb DataTraveller Flash Drive

Hi Guys,

I recently bought a Kingston 1.0 Gb DataTraveller flash drive and am unable to get my friend's computer to see it. He is running W98SE. I asked our local computer shop about this and they said that it might not be a genuine Kingston drive. I downloaded a driver called DTI from the Kingston website and installed it but the W98SE computer does not see the drive. It works 100% on my computer running Windows XP without any problems.

Do you have any suggestions?

Kind regards,

GRAHAM

The people at your local computer shop are wrong but, Windows 98 should at least recognize the USB thumb-drive and ask for drivers.
I would remove all the USB Controllers from within Device Manager and restart; allow Windows upon restart to reload the USB Controllers; then plug in the drive and see if Windows at least recognizes and then install drivers.
It seems only the DTI/XX, KUSBDTE/XX, and DTII/XX support Windows 98.

Unable to install driver software


There is a problem with this drive and windows vista. Unfortunately both these companies will throw you the run around (Microsoft says talk to Kingston, Kingston says talk to microsoft. It is definetly a Vista issue. There is no driver you can find for vista. I would recommend replacing it with one that you know is compatible with Vista or wait til this problem is fixed. Will work in XP just fine.
Thanks,
Lee
