Windows 98 needs drivers to install the Iomega hard drive.

Newer hard drives do not support Windows 98.

See if you can find Win drivers Here.

If there is nothing , try using generic drivers here, this should work in all situations: Windows 98 USB Mass Storage Device Drivers

Disconnect hard disk, download and install drivers from links below, then connect hard disk.


If that does not work

SOURCE: My omega hard drive won't

Windows 98 does not include native support for NTFS file systems. Drives (greater than 32GB) of this capacity have likely been formatted using NTFS.

You can find more information and programs that will permit accessing this drive in a Windows 98 environment here.

Good luck!

Need an operating Manual for a 1T omega portable hard drive USB 2


There should be no need for a manual for a USB 2 External Hard Drive. Simply plug it into a USB Port on the Computer and select it with Windows Explorer. Basically, It will assume a Drive Letter other than C: or D: dependent upon how many drives you computer has. A Tower with a CD Read Only drive and a CD or DVD burner drive will have C: primary Hard Drive, D: typically assigned to the read only drive and E: CD or DVD Burner drive. Windows explorer will display all Connected Drives. If it doesn't show up there it is probably a fractured wire in it's cable or a damaged contact it the USB connector on the cable.

Fter firring aother internal hard drive on my pc due to a virus i could not get rid of i now do not have the icon to click on B4 i turn my omega hard drive off how do i reload this model...


Plug your hard disk into the USB port.

Hold down windows key on the keyboard and press "E" key, this will bring up a window "My Computer"

In there you will see a series of disk drives "local disk (C:) Hard disk
Devices with removable storage "(D:)" CD Rom/DVD player.

There should be another one, Expansion drive (E:) or another letter.

Right click on the Expansion drive select "create shortcut"

It will ask you if you want to place a shortcut on the Desktopl

Click yes and there you are.

If the external drive won't show, shut down the computer, unplug the drive.

restart the computer, after the computer has finished starting, plug in the external drive. and run through the steps above.

Formating hard disk


IF the old PC motherboard will recognize the drive while booting up, Windows 98 will also see the drive after boot-up. You may have to reformat the drive into smaller partitions.

All you have to do is physically install the drive in your old computer and attempt to boot. After the computer boots up, if the drive does not show up shut down and put the drive back in your old computer. Use the manufacturer's partitioning software available on their website to change the drive from one 250 Gb partitions to five 50 Gb partitions.

System not found (win98),


When you get that "prompt" "c:/>" type this:

cd %windows% PRESS ENTER KEY
win PRESS ENTER KEY

Did you get the windows 98 running and working?

If not maybe some files of the Windows 98 operating system was damage and you need to reinstall it.

DOES THE VERBATIM HARD DRIVE NEED TO BE FORMATED?


Many Verbatim hard drive models with a FireWire interface come “Mac formatted” – pre-formatted for immediate use with Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS. They are formatted as HFS+, the preferred format when using the drive exclusively with Mac OS computers.
Note: A Mac-formatted drive will not mount on a Windows PC.
If you plan to use a Mac-formatted hard drive only with computers running Mac OS, you can leave it formatted as it comes from the factory. However, if you plan to use your hard drive with computers running Windows, or with both Mac OS and Windows computers, you should reformat your Verbatim hard drive before saving data to it. Generally, for use with both Mac OS and Windows you should format to FAT32, and for use strictly with Windows you should format to NTFS. More information about these two format types is given below.
FAT32 FAT32 is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista. FAT32 can also be read by Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS.
Limitations: Maximum file size is limited to 4TB. Furthermore, using the formatting tools included with Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista users will not be able to create partition sizes larger than 32GB (though they can access these larger partitions). This limitation does not apply to other supported operating systems. Furthermore, Verbatim provides a FAT32 format utility (see further below for download instructions) that eliminates the 32GB partition limitation.
FAT32 is a good choice if you’ll be using your Verbatim hard drive with older computers running Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, or Windows Me, or if you’ll be using it with both Windows and Mac OS computers.
NTFS NTFS is compatible with the following Windows operating systems: Windows NT, Windows 2000, Windows XP and Windows Vista. NTFS usually results in higher performance than FAT32, and will permit users to create partition sizes larger than 32GB, and file sizes larger than 4TB.
Limitations: NTFS is not compatible with Windows 98, Windows 98 SE, Windows Me, or Apple Macintosh computers running Mac OS.
NTFS is a good choice if you will be using your Verbatim hard drive only with one or more computers running Windows XP, Windows 2000 or Windows Vista. This is also a good choice if you plan to store files larger than 4TB, such as digital video files.

Windows 98 driver for FreeAgent


If your PC is still running Win98 then it probably has a USB version 1.0 port. I don't think the Faster USB version 2.0 devices will work properly even if you have the correct driver - i.e. you have a hardware version conflict. Try Purchasing a USB version 2.0 Daughter board for the PC and plugging the Seagate drive into that iinstead.
