Windows 98 does not support usb, windows 98SE (second Edition) was the first of the windows systems to support usb. If you have access to 98SE it is not installed automatically it is in a sub directory. It was so long ago i am unable to remember the name of sub directory.

Is it a desktop or laptop, you can go to your device Manager, check if the drivers are loaded properly,and reload or you can just run the last win98 patch its sure to work

I bought jet flash 500 pendrive model TS4GJF500 I HAVE USE WIN 98 MY PEN DRIVE IS NOT DETECTED WHAT CAN I DO PLEASE GIVE ME A SOLN


Hi..

Windows 98 does not support Plug n Play Devices. So you have to download appropriate drivers from Microsoft Website. Though Windows 98SE ( Windows 98 Second Edition ) thought to be support USB Mass Storage Drives fairly, these drivers are not pre-installed with OS. You have to download Service packs to install these drivers.

Since Windows 98 have TWO versions, we have to download corresponding service packs .

You can

I'm tryin to install the sierra wireless card 598 on win 98 manually. Does anyone know how to do


Hello sir, hi, installing a USB device on windows 98 is kinda hard but possible. here are some things that you should do:
  1. you may need the sierra CD device driver that comes with your wireless card.
  2. next is that your PC should support USB 1.1 or 2.0. If you are using windows 98, make sure that your USB port is working fine, you can insert a flash drive to confirm if your usb port is working.
  3. depending on the setup files they may need you to plug in the device as the setup file loads the driver or later.
  4. run the sierra CD setup file to install your wireless card. (hope win 98 supports this device)
  5. after the setup, plug in your wireless USB device, windows 98 should detect it.
If things didnt work out as listed above, do it setup several times, ............ still no progress call your dealer for proper installation on your PC.

I have a problem to install window 98 .


Another solution is to download and install Microsoft Virtual PC in XP, create a Virtual PC drive, and install Windows 98 onto the Virtual PC drive. This works fine if you want to run Win 9X programs which don't require access to USB ports on your computer. If you need Windows 98 to have full access to all of the computer hardware, then use palaboy's solution.

Cannot connect my PDA to PC


Hi,

Normally for when you connect any device to pc using USB port, windows detects it. Sometime it may take time.
Few initial things you may check....

1) You must have your PDA in ON condition
2) If PDA is not getting connected on port, try connecting to other USB port (assuming that pc normally have more than one USB port)
3) Make sure the cable that you are using between PDA to PC is working properly (normally you can check this by using other cable)
4) If you have intalled some anti virus program on your pc then check the settings of same.
5) last but not least check the settings of window's firewall (part of OS)

If everything of above is fine then either USB ports of pc or of PDA might not be working.

All the best!!

Av

My external harddisk is not detecting


hi kiran,
If you are using Windows 98 then you have to istalled driver for your external USB HDD.

If you are using Windows XP/Vista then the masstorage drivers for USB HDD is allready installed in your system, as it comes with the OS.
Some time due to conflict or bad contact your system might not read the USB devices:
  • Be sure that switch is on (if there is any switch in USB HDD).
  • Try to check the connection.
  • Try in different USB port.
  • Also check the USB cable is good.
If still no success try to use in another system and let me know your feed back.

Thanks

Possible usb malfunction?


hi,
well xp is a better OS than 98 ( i think) ...
few things you should know that xp is pre-installed with lotsa drivers..but on the other hand 98 isn't .. so each time you put in a USB device you need to install the driver for that device( eg your camera, pen drive etc...) . this drivers would be there accompanied with your device.
hope it helps
