Re: windows 98 eos canon 400d

With camera connected via a USB port, go to control panel "add hardware" and let windows try to locate the device.
Also if you right click on "my computer" select "properties" then click on "hardware" tab then click on "device manager" button, all devices are shown in expandable tree format, any device with a problem, will be shown with a yellow asterisk, if this is so, follow the prompts to update the drivers......good luck

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

Windows 98 will not boot up

You could try running sfc scannow. See link here. And very helpful site for troubleshooting windows 98 here and here.
I couldn't tell you about downloading it, but I'd scan any download very carefully, and question whether you could trust an install done from such files to be secure. I'd try to find an original cd as they should be a dime a dozen these days...
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
