Memory sticks, memory cards and even USB thumb drives all get attached by Windows as a drive. Pull up Windows Explorer (file manager on Mac). Navigate to My Computer level. THis will show all drives attached including hard drives, connected USB drives and connected memory sticks/cards. You may not be sure which is which unless the drive was labeled with the cards branding. One way to determine is go to lower right task area and click on the 'safely remove hardware' icon (green arrow). Select safely remove hardware from pop-up menu. Check the box for Display device component. This should populate the window above with the actual names of the devices along with the assigned drive letter. Now that you know which one, open Windows Explorer, navigate to My Computer level and the select the drive letter. You can drag and drop files to and from this window to take files on and off the memory card/stick/USB drive. You can also right click on the drive letter and choose properties to see how much room you have on the card.
I'm a little confused as you mention both Drive E. which suggests Windows and gnome which suggest linux.
WARNING: Formatting the disk will erase any data on it. Do not format the disk if you are trying to get the data off it that was on it yesterday.
It is possible that the partition table has been corrupted.
If you are using windows. You can either try right clicking on the drive (not double clicking) from Windows Explorer (My Computer) and clicking format. Choose the file system type and go. Alternatively, you could work through the disk management administrative tool. Right Click on My Computer -> Manage -> Disk Management. Right click on the volume and format it.
If you are using linux, see if you have a valid partition table using fdisk for the device. Then, after creating the partition, use mkdosfs to format the drive. If you have formatted the drive as a linux partition, such as ext2, ext3, or reiserfs, it is likely that Windows will not see it as a valid drive.
I had the same problem. I found the drive for (Win98SE) I needed on the Verbatim europe site, hope this works for you. Note: make sure you take note of which serial number you have, it is in very small writting on the side of the stick.
windows 98 need special driver from usb memory stick manufacturer. if they dont have it then its not a compatible model for win 9x. what i have done in prior is if high speed internet is saving it to online drive storage free website like xdrive.com if u have aim account youre ready to use it or others like yahoo mail yourself the files then retrieve in other pc.
If you are running windows vista, try right clicking on the locker -select properties-select compatibility tab- check mark the run in mode box and run the application in windows xp service pack 2 compatibility mode or another mode listed. If this doesn't work then your drive might have become corrupted, either from static electricity from being plugged/unplugged with your computer on, or coming too close to a magnet etc... Always back up your data. Good luck.
