WIN 98 and WIN 98SE wont support the USB Pen Drives
Please re-install the latest OS like WIN XP/2K/2003 which automatically detects the mass storage drives.

Kingston has discontinued its support for Windows 98 and therefore no longer posts their drivers for that OS.

You can try using generic drivers (but being generic is not 100% compatible to all).

For Windows 98, try here;
For Windows 98SE, try here.

Additional information may be viewed here, here and here.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Am I to assume that the drivers doesn't work?
    Or is it possible that your concern also includes that the USB are not showing in your Device Manager? Or perhaps your PC doesn't have any USB ports?

    Pls post back updates and additional details.

    to Compurepair,

    Contrary to your post "windows 98 and 98se. does,nt like mass-storage devices." flash drives do work in Windows 98(SE) and all it takes is correct setup and getting the appropriate drivers. And I do know since I still maintain a couple of 98s for clients and update most of their anti-virus using a flashdrive.

    Perhaps it is you Sir who do not know, may I be of assistance and teach you how pls?

I want to use 1GB Kingston pendrive in windows 98 but it needs a driver. This driver is not available at Kingston site. How to to get it. Pl help. SP GUPTA

1. Verify you are using the service pack that came out just before year 2000. It had improved USB support.
2. USB support was introduced to Windows in Windows 95b, it is possible your drive is a newer USB2 and not 1.1 and may not work in your machine.

You will be provided with a free software Kingston secure traveller. In that, you can divide the pendrive into two partitions. One will be public and the other will be password protected.

I have 2gb kingston pendrive ,need a free driver to run in windows 98 os.

Go to the web site, , and select support. From there choose Flash Drives and pick the specific one you have. They do not have Win98SE drivers for their newest pendrives. I checked several different models and found slightly different drivers so I can't be of more help without more information.
