Depending on if it has type I or type II PCMCIA slots, you can get a PCMCIA cardbus USB adapter.

They are relatively cheap on Ebay - about 7 bucks.

Just make sure you get one that is the correct card type, and comes with Win98 drivers.

My old compaq presario wont read my scan disc


Can you use that port to read any other device?What operating system are you using?Did it work previously?Windows 98 you will have to install drivers.Chances are that old computer has a usb 1.0 so it might not work.However try another device in that port or any usb port on the computer to see if any ports are working.Does your scan disk work on another computer.Have you done a windows update recently.Make sure you try all the above.
Good luck

Unfortunately, there are no drivers available for windows 98. Most of your memory sticks will not work on windows 98. Your best bet is to burn your files on a CD and use that instead.

I am not able to install Windows XP on Compaq Presario CQ60-104TU


Recommend removing OLD DOS Operating system First. Then Install Windows XP. XP will NOT upgrade older systems unless it's Windows 98 and Fully Updated. However, can NO Longer do because Microsoft does NOT support any versions other than "2000/ME/XP/Vista".

Usb 2.0 windows 98


Windows 98 SE supports USB 2.0. The original Windows 98 (gold) or Windows 98 OEM or Windows 98 Upgrade versions which are not SE will not support USB 2.0. Nor is there any way to get USB 2.0 support for these Windows 98 versions unless you upgrade to Windows 98 SE.

Note that the Windows 98 SE upgrade CD will fail upon completion, leaving the SE Upgrade with a corrupt registry, if you try to run the Windows 98 SE Upgrade CD on a Windows 98 system that has a version of IE installed which is higher than IE 4.

windows xp, yes. just look for printers which support windows xp.

you may have to upgrade your ram, but many hp machines (as well as other brands) will support pentium II's (10 year old technology) as long as they have 128megs of ram and a usb port. you may also have to update internet explorer (prolly to register the new printer).

the hardware interface matters only when it comes to printer port v/s usb, and most laptops and printers made in the last 5 years will all support usb. make sure the printer does not specify usb 2.0 in its minimum requirements, as this is a fairly new usb standard which was not around 5 years ago.

otherwise, make sure your laptop supports the other minimum requirements for the printer, as the printer's software may not load if the minimum requirements are not meant.

personally, i would recomend an hp, and a simple one at that; the more bells and whistles (such as flash card readers) the harsher the minimum requirements will be.

Researching your specific machine the ethernet network adapter had at least 5 versions of driver for Windows 98. Only Windows ME driver listed is also the latest version of the Windows 98 drivers. If your drivers were not up to date it is quite possible that your ethernet NIC may need the driver update at this link Presario Notebooks Conexant Combo - Modem/NIC Driver for Windows ME

All your machine's Windows ME drivers and software are listed here. In case you find any other drivers that need to be updated.

Please respond to this problem with a comment if this does not resolve the issue. There may be more to understand about this problem.

Will Dell Axim sync with Outlook 2000 on Windows 95?


It should if you have USB on the W95 machine. ActiveSync is compatable with W95. It worked for me with Outlook 98 on a Win95 laptop synching to a PC2000 PDA (Jornada), however I was using a serial cable.
