I'm sorry there are no drivers for this camera, no one is making them for windows 98, windows xp and newer come with the software build in.
I'll save you some time and fustration, take the camera - memory card to a local camera shop or a photo place where they can print them out or burn them to a CD, then you can view them on your computer from the CD.
if you haven't continued to use the memory card you can download a freeware called glary undelete. it will let you undelete most of the photos.there are several available. The one I used was Glary undelete. here is the text from the about section. Glary Undelete is a free and easy-to-use yet powerful file undelete solution
for FAT and NTFS file systems. It will bring back files emptied from the Recycle
Bin, in a DOS window, from Windows Explorer with the SHIFT key held down. It
will even recover files that have been deleted by bugs, crashes and viruses!
Glary Undelete works under Win 95/98/Me/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista operating
systems. The program supports all Windows file systems for hard and floppy
drives including FAT12/16/32,NTFS/NTFS5 and image recovery from CompactFlash,
SmartMedia, MultiMedia and Secure Digital cards.
You'll have to explain what you want to do? If you want to download your images, you don't need a driver, just attach a Windows 98 compatible card reader to your USB port and download your pictures to your favorite photo manager. You should be able to attach your camera via USB, and if the USB drivers detect the camera's disk, then a new drive will appear your My Computer.
If you have Windows 98 Second Edition, you should be set to go, if you have Windows 98 First Edition (where it doesn't say Second Edition in the My Computer properties), you'll have a tougher time with the USB connections. It would be best to upgrade your machine, or find the Windows 98 SE upgrade from a friend.
The CD that came with the camera will have the necessary software for Windows 98 SE.
What have you tried to do? What isn't working? Let me know some details and I'll help you out.
Hope these ideas help. Clarify some things and I can give you a more narrow answer.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.
Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program such as Picasa.
