okay, problem isn't in ur pendrive problem in ur computer, some kind of viruses attack only removable drives, and user didn't find viruses in computer and also antivirus, you should download microsoft security essential here,--- http://windows.microsoft.com/en-IN/windows/security-essentials-download , and update this software insert ur pendrive and start virus scanning as a whole computer including ur pendrive ur problem will surely solve
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you should see a yellow question mark? right click to reinstall drivers or if you can see your usb but its not working ports(com&lpt)right click update driver or scroll to disk drives if you can see your drive + to expand right click you should see options to update driver,disable,uninstall scan for hardware changes. or select properties you should see options in the general tab to troubleshoot,policies,volumes,driver and details under the driver tab you will have the options to check the driver details,update driver,rollback driver or uninstall hope this helps
I'm not an expert with PCs, but I have a windows 98 Operating system and have been able to use all sorts of flash drives. Everytime I buy a new one, I just plug it into the USB port and in a short time it recognizes NEW HARDWARE and loads the driver. I've used LEXAR 2GB,SANDISK 4GB, VERBATIM 2GB, and recently a ATIVA 4GB
Sorry to say it.... In ma point of view it would be becoz of virus which has attacked both pendrive as well as ur system...
Just verify in pendrive whether it shows folders of ur c:/ drive.... if it is so den it is confirmed tht d virus has been attacked... first u just format ur system vth xp r vista cd and plse install virus software.... like norton r bitdefender so tht ur computer would be full secured...
there is a patch for windows 98 to make it accept all usb pendrives and stuff like that..
here is a link to download but it is not the same version i have... thought i cannot give you mine from here... mine is called DRIVER_USB_v2.2 ... if the link below does not work try searching under that name. Its just a simple file and installing it and rebooting your windows everything should work, otherwise tell me so and we will make it work... I have the file so...
