No drivers came with the 4GB HP usb flash drive v125w I just purchased. I can not find them on HP web site. Need for Win Xp. Help

Windows 98 has no support for newer USB flash-drives.

Windows XP has full support for newer USB flash-drives -- if it cannot find the driver on your 'C:' disk, it will access the Internet to download the drivers from Microsoft's web-site, automatically.

Windows 98 se problems

Please to don't take this wrong but your computer is an antique.
There is a big chance that it is not going to turn on one day and you may lose all of the data on it.

Don't feel bad though, that is suprisingly long life for a computer!

It is time to get a new PC and move your data to it. This is your last chance to get Windows XP which is the last version of Windows that still looks like WIndows 98. Don't get stuck with Windows Vista.

Check out and type "Outlet" into the Search Window. The slowest Windows XP computer you find will be WAY faster than your current computer at a tenth of the price. They even have payment plans.

I hope this helps.

Can't get photos out of old pc

Since it is a 98, you can use a usb thumb drive, but you'll have to install the driver that comes with the drive. You could also use the floppy drive if it has one. You might have to use several if there's a lot of pictures.

Hope this helps!

Vista error for games

I read that there is a patch, but like you i couldnt find it.
Here are some tips from Sierra,. I dont know if you had seen these or not.
Also you didnt say what video card you run.

If you are encountering errors, during your F.E.A.R. Perseus Mandate installation process, please use the following methods in the order that they appear.

1. Make sure there are no smudges, scratches or other residue on the game DVD. If you see any smudges, try cleaning with damp soft lint free cloth (like an old T-shirt) from the inside edge to the outside edge in straight lines.

Note: Try the game installation on another pc system (if available), to determine if the disc is bad or damaged. If same issue occurs on another computer, you may need to replace the game disc.
For information regarding disk replacement, please go back to our main support page at:

2. Try you game Installation from a secondary DVD or DVD-RW drive if available.

3. We advise you to have Administrator privileges to properly install and run games on your Windows OS.
If you have administrator rights, and wish to give a user administrator rights, you can do this in the Users option of your Windows Control Panel.

4. Temporarily disable programs from running at system start-up, which in some cases could prevent game installation.
Use the Selective Startup option in MSCONFIG.
Go to your Start then select Run(if you don't see Run, Hold down the Windows key, and then press the R key on your keyboard to invoke the Run dialog box) In the Open: box type: msconfig and then press the Enter key.
When the menu appears, click on the General tab, if it is not already at the front. Under Startup Selection, select Selective Startup, and uncheck the selection Load Startup Items.
Click on Apply and then Ok/Close, and restart the system to retry the installation.

5. Locate and delete a file IsProBE.tlb from Runtime folder located in C:\Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Professional

You can find the file by going to your My Computer icon
-Open local drive C and then Program Files
-Go into InstallShield folder then open the folder Professional and delete IsProBE.tlb then re-run the installation again

6. Check you system's manufacturer web site and see if they have any firmware driver updates for you DVD or DVD-RW drives.

7. Ensure that you have cleaned out your temporary directories. To do this, double click on My Computer, with the Right Mouse Button click on the appropriate hard drive and click on Properties with the Left Mouse Button. Click on the Disk Cleanup button ensure temporary files are checked and proceed to clean up these files.

8. Try ‘copy the contents’ method below.
Copy all DVD contents of the game into a folder on your hard drive and run the installation from that location (If you receive an overwrite prompt select Yes to all).
Note that you will need about 8 GB plus free space on the hard drive to apply this option.

See below for instructions.

-Quit all programs that are running.
-Right-click in empty are on the desktop then point to New, and then click Folder.
-Name the folder, and then press ENTER.
-Double-click on the folder that you just created.
-From the Tools menu, click Folder Options.
-Click the View tab. Under Hidden files and folders, click Show hidden files and folders, and then click OK.
-Insert game DVD into your drive. Hold down the SHIFT key on your keyboard to prevent the program from starting automatically.
-Open My Computer, then right Click on game icon and left click on Open.
-Go to Edit menu at the top and click on Select All.
-Now, go to Edit again and click on Copy.
-Next step is to open the folder you created on the desktop, go to Edit menu, and then click Paste.
-This will copy the contents of the disc into the folder.

Please be patent since this may take some time. After all game contents been copied into the folder, double-click Setup.exe and then follow the on-screen instructions to install your game.

9. Ensure that your hard drive is not fragmented. To defrag your hard drive, click on START, go to PROGRAMS, go to ACCESSORIES, go to SYSTEM TOOLS, and select DISK DEFRAGMENTER, select the appropriate drive and click DEFRAGMENT. Please be aware that this process, depending on the size of the drive, may take up to and over an hour to complete.

Microsoft Windows 98 for PC Problem is there any software driver for pen drive so that my win98 o.s. computer can detect any type or companies pen drive plz tell me

wow, the 90's are a calling... sure their is a roumor of a usb pen driver for win 98' ....


Windows 98, especially in it's second edition (also known as Windows 98SE), handles USB fairly well, however there are no generic/universal mass storage device drivers preinstalled in the operating system, so you will need to install some additional drivers for it. Some manufacturers do however, provide the Windows 98 drivers on CD, others have them available to download, and others simply do not have them available at all!!!!!!!


generic Windows 98SE USB mass storage device drivers:


instructions?? :

  1. Download the exe file to the desktop
  2. Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
  3. Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
  4. Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager (*carefull)
  5. Run the exe file you downloaded, and follow the instructions, rebooting after installation
  6. When the computer boots up again, it may detect new USB 2.0 controllers, in which case you may need to reboot again


as always good luck! now im going to go back to my windows 95 and play Bioshock on full graphics!! excuse me = )

Drivers for sony cybershot for windows vista

There are no drivers for Windows Vista for this camera, nor are there drivers for anything past Windows 98.

If you have a new computer with Vista loaded into it there is a slot for the memory stick in the front. Regardless of the computer the slot should read MS/PRO/DUO. Slip your memory stick in and a screen will pop up showing DRIVE H Memory stick and download from there.

If you have an older computer and upgraded to Windows Vistat there is an adapter you can buy that your memory stick slips into and then plug it in your USB slot. Software needs to be downloaded first from the site prescribed on the package.

I spent over 3 hours today trying to find drivers like you did until I got online and did a chat with a Tech from Sony. Its so simple its silly stupid. Had the slot right in front on my Dell Inspiron PC DUH !!! Good luck Same for Windows 2000 XP, with service pack 3 or 2 or anything past Windows 98 Hope this helps, it worked in a flash once I found out what to do.
