Microsoft stopped supporting Windows 98 over two years ago,
and stopped supporting Windows 2000 on July 16, 2010.

So, any company that manufactures "new" (in the last two years) hardware probably will _NOT_ have written device-drivers for Windows 98/98SE/NT/2000.

Does the external disk work correctly when connected to a computer running Windows XP? Vista? 7 ?
If not, then maybe the external disk itself is the problem.

Hello. I purchased the Thermaltake Blacx Duet-Dual Hard Drive Docking Station and am currently attempting to clone to 2 SATAs. How do I know when the cloning is complete?


Your doing a cloning of two large drives using a USB device as I have the same docking station. Cloning a 2TB drive will take some time depending on how much data and number of files on the drive being cloned. USB even 3.0 protocol is dog slow!
Give it time and do not interrupt the clone once started.

I need the instructions for Thermaltake BlacX ST0005U


The manufacturer page for this item is here: http://www.thermaltakeusa.com/products-model.aspx?id=C_00002058
Their support page does not provide a manual, instructions or drivers.
I suspect that is because none are needed. This is essentially an external hard drive enclosure for SATA drives which are standard. Connected via eSATA or USB.

How do I get a Win 98 SE computer to talk to a USB II external disc running from a Thermaltake deck dock with a SATA disc in the dock?


to be honest you have more of a chance of hell freezing over, win 98 se although being the better out of the lot, you will never get the drivers for it, usb2 will never work with that os and it will never recognise the sata disk, you could try using win xp drivers for it, but i very much doubt you will get any response, your best bet would be to upgrade to xp...sorry its negative, but Microsoft stopped updates for 98 years ago...

Connected external usb drive to my computer which runs windows xp. Computer says drive is working properly, but drive does not appear on windows explorer. Also cannot assign drive letter, so cannot...


Win 2k, XP, Vista, and Win7 have a CONTROL PANEL applet called Administrative Tools - opening that there is a sub applet called Computer Management - and openint that there is another sub applet called Disk Management. In Disk Management you will usually find all of your drives (including those that don't show up in Windows Explorer). A new drive will probably be listed as drive 1 or something like that and shown as UNALLOCATED space. Right click that drive (my best advice on how to be sure its the right drive is to know the drive size .. ie 500 gb or 750 gb etc AND seeing that it is inactive) to activate it and to partition and format it.

250 GB Western Digital external HD not detected by Win 98 SE


If you installed SE on Win 98, then here is a link to a generic USB driver that should work with your HD. If at some point you decide to install a newer OS or go dual-boot, you can always partition the HD so you don't lose any storage. Best of luck.

Is there a driver to allow sony micro vault 2.0gb on win 98?


Specs say it is compatible with Windows 98 SE. Also says no drivers are needed for it. Make sure your plug 'n play is enabled on your computer. Once it is enabled just plug the drive in & Win 98SE should install it. If it does not work then try a different usb port as maybe a port is bad. Hope this helps.

Win 98 se file trouble


get hold of a win 98 boot disc (search the net) as it will have the files you are looking for, i am sure. copy them to your hard disc c:\windows or c:\windows\system
put them in both as i cant remember what one they go in. (it will not hurt in both).

good luck
