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,,... :))

Sir i have windows 98 ;i have 4 GB kingston pendrive; It is not accepted;


You MUST get a driver for Win98SE if NOT Win98SE it will NOT ever work. Also 4GB is Too Big for the operating system to handle, Win98SE is only a 16 BIT computer. It cannot "Count" up to 4GB worth of address space biggest that can be used on Win98SE is 1GB. get one that will work, and install the Win989SE driver that comes with the unit or download from Kingston web site.

Can't delete some data already installed in Kingston pendrive?


What type of files are they (be more generic if files are personal and/or name the extension names of each files that cannot be deleted)

Solution:

- Try changing the name of the files and then deleting them

- Is your USB Password Protected ~ this may stop you from deleting those files (try deleting the Security on your USB)

- System Deletion Performance may be slow and.or unknown Deletion Command

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.
