Question about Belkin (F5D5231-4) Router
I have a new Laptop running Vista my problem is that my old Tower is running Win98 & only has 1 USB port at rear. It does not reconnise that i have inserted my memory stick! & it only has a CD Reader NOT rewriter. Plus it only has a dial up modem installed. I now have broadband with(AOL) .So is there a way of transfering files to my Laptop !!!! i have been told that the tower hasn't got plug & play ! so can i download the driver for my Memory stick & install it. Its a INTEGRAL 2GB stick. If so how do i get the driver & then install it ? thanks for any help with this one. Colin....
It's possible to get Windows 98 to recognize the USB memory stick, but there will be several technical problems to deal with.
A much simpler way may be to remove the hard drive from the tower and connect it directly to the laptop with an external USB-to-IDE adapter. In this configuration your files can be copied directly from the old hard drive to the laptop. Depending on your comfort level with working on the internal parts of your computer, you may need assistance from someone with computer service experience to do this. One example of the device you need is the "Bytecc BT-200 USB to IDE Cable with Power Adapter"....or you can search online to find this or similar devices by using the search terms USB - Hard Drive - External - IDE - Adapter. They are generally available for under $20.
