Re: Windows 98 USB Memory Stick driver
Most memory sticks require you to download a separate driver for use on Windows 98 machines. All driver downloads are free, and you can find a camplatible driver on the website of the manufacturer of your memory stick. For example if your memory stick is a Sandisk, you would go to the sandisk website, click on support, drivers and downloads, select your exact product and select the correct driver from the list provided.
On some memory sticks there simply aren't drivers available for windows 98. Lets hope this isn't the case. If you want me to look for the driver and provide a link, give me the manufacturer and model number of your memory stick and I will be glad to help.
I have an installer called Maxim Native USB for Win98Se only. It works fine with various memory sticks and cameras. I'm only just connected to the web, haven't (yet) a Email-account. I have a Hotmail adress. I found it on the web years ago, and would like to pass it on. Help me to upload it somewhere for you to grab it. Greetz, Marc at MarcGAAben@live.nl

Plug the memory stick into the computer and format it. Unplug it then plug it back into the computer, you should have a pop up that asks you what you want to do (open folder view, play and a few other options), you weant to choose Open a Folder View.
You should now have a window open that you can put files into, if not then go to "My Computer" and select it from the available drives.
Now open up the folder with your pictures in it and select all the pictures you want to transfer then press "copy". Go to the memory sticks folder and right click and select "paste" from the right click menu or hit "CTRL+V".
You will get a progress pop up that shows how long the file transfer will take, after it is done...so are you.
If the memory stick is not recognized when plugged in, you way need to load the software that came with the memory stick for its drivers.
How to use a memory stick or USB
I will assume you are using windows.
as you can see your USB memory stick has a metal connector with a plastic insert; that was made to fit in the connector
on the back or sides of computers.
the computer has several places to insert the memory but this device will fit properly in just the correct jack and it will go in in just one position, you can not turn it over and insert it.
after you do that windows will install the driver (software) for the device and it is going to open a window asking what do you want to do at this point you can click on any option but if you want to see your files or save files, click on the folder that says view files.
that opens the device, if it is brand new there would be no files. At that point you can drag all kinds of files in to the memory and store them.
the other option after you insert the memory, close the asking window and click on my computer from here you can see your memory stick, click on it and it will open, drag files to it or out of it in to your computer.
when you are creating documents or files you can save them in to your memory stick. Just click on file--save as--computer--memory stick (name or model)--save or ok.
when you are ready to disconnect your memory stick go to the clock area on the right corner, there is an icon of a connector with a green check mark click on that and then stop device, select your memory stick-stop, wait for confirmation and then you can unplug it >>>>failing to do this may damage your files or memory stick<<<<<<
You probably emptied the memory stick in the download, if the OS sees the memory stick as a removable device then a simple drag and drop will put a copy of the files back on the stick. If MS not see by OS then you cannot get them back on. Trick is that the operating system must see the memory stick as a device to exchange data. Some programs allow retrevial but do not make provision for storing.
just plug in the memory stick in the old computer and copy/paste files from the old computer to the memory stick (don't forget to look at the size the files might be over sized and the memory stick wont save them).
now after finishing the copy paste from the old computer to the memory stick, take the memory stick out and plug it in the new computer and copy/paste the files from the memory stick to the computer.
you may need to do these steps for few times if you have a large amount of data
