Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
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?
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.

Tips for a great answer:
click start control panel administrative tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question / exclamation mark? ! or a red X
you will need to update/reinstall drivers
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports (com&lpt) right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems to a computer and its parts
