Try to format your USB Drive if that is not formatted yet. On your my computer you will see the USB drive right click on it then click reformat after reformat the computer will now recognize the available size of your device. Because if that the first time you to plug in a computer, the computer will not recognize if your USB is NFTS format or a FAT32 format.

My Operation system is window 98 and I wish to use USB memory strick, but I can install the driver for win 98


Both Microsoft and SanDisk stopped support for Windows 98 (that is the 1998 version of Windows) in the middle of 2008 (two years ago). So, if Windows 98 does not recognize the "plug-and-play" device (manufactured since the middle of 2008), then you'll have to upgrade your computer to Windows XP or Vista or 7, or use an "older" flash-drive that Windows 98 did support.

I cannot plug any divice.


Hi,

The laptop is too old for Windows 7 to be installed onto it. Windows 98 will need the USB 2 drivers installed before you can plug a USB 2 drive in and have it recognized.

My advice to you would be to upgrade Windows 98 to Windows XP, then you will have an up to date computer.


Regards.

Win 98 does not support plug & Play USB devices unless the drivers are installed. Xp how ever does. you need to install the drivers to be able to used the device in win 98. since you did not get a driver cd, best would be to download the drive from the net. if you abl to give me more details of the device, i would be able to find the driver.

UNless you are using Windows 98 or Windows 95, a USB key will be detected as a hrad drive when connected to the system. You simply copy the files using MY Computer or Windows Explorer to the USB drive. When finished, the files are on the drive, and you can take them to another system.

You can also open the file, then use the SAVE AS function to select a different location (The USB drive) and copy the file that way.

If you are using windows 98, you'll need a software driver for Windows 98 to recognize a USB drive. The drivers are made by the USB drive manufacturer

Inability to recognize Kingston pendrive in windows98


Windows 98 is not capable of recornizing the mass storage devices, but windows 2000 and XP, vista has the capability to automatically recognize the USB mass storage devices.

Thats why your Windows 98 is not recognizing. So, to use the mass-storage device like your pen drive you have to install device driver to your windows 98 system for your pendrive.

If you don't have the driver, then goto pendrive manufacturer site, there you can found the driver for your pen-drive for windows 98, download it, and install on your windows 98 system..... n njoy,,... :))

Flash drive


Hi,
What operating system are you running ??
If it,s windows 98 you,ll have problems, as they don,t like mass staorage devices, even with the drivers installed.
the other alternative, is to try on another PC And format it to FAT/FAT32 Or NTFS ( if your using XP )

W98SE Driver for Kingston 1.0Gb DataTraveller Flash Drive


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.
