I need to know how to use the Sandisk card reader. can u give me instructions?


You should be able to plug the device in. Most operating systems will recognize the device and treat it as new hard drive.

Are you getting a request for a driver? If so, first let Windows look for the driver.

I have a Sandisk Cruzer Micro and a Sansa Clip+ and i can't get my PC to recognize either one and i have gotten drivers for the flash drive and still nothing. What can I do? Have Win98SE.


I noticed you said windows 98SE if your computer does not have USB 2,0 that may be a large part of your problems. If that is the case and you have a free PCI slot you may want to consider getting a usb card with USB 2.0. It will run alonsid your existing USB ports.

I recently had to do this with an older laptop and computer for a customer.

I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and OTHER devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems (mac/ Linux) similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especially true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

USB flash drives can fail for no apparent reason.
Sandisk Cruzers are especially bad for this.

USB hard drives should be treated with extreme care.
This is a real hard drive ! and knocks and bumps can quite literally kill them.

It is possible to remove drives from the enclosures in most cases and connect directly inside a PC to fully check it.

Note that if you hear a drive clicking or pinging this could be the worst thing you would hear.
Known as "The Click Of Death"

If none of the above steps help look at updating the drivers from the manufacturers web site in the support section.

How to use Micro USB flash drive?


OK. Just put the flash drive in one of your USB ports (rectangular slot). The system should recognize your drive and auto-install the driver. If not and the USB ports are OK, download the driver for your Micro USB flash drive. If you are not certain about the driver, let me know which specific (brand and model) USB drive you have. Also, let me know if the USB is/isn't recognized. Hope this helps.

I need the driver for wd2500me-00,usb external hard disk


The folks over at WD said:



There are no downloadable USB, Firewire, or eSATA drivers available. WD external drives install using the resident USB and Firewire drivers that come in Windows 2000 SP4, XP SP2, Vista, and Mac 10.4 and 10.5. If the drivers are not installing when you connect the WD drive, or you are having driver issues, you will need to contact Microsoft or Apple for their recommendations.

I will search further if you like, just let me know.
Try the old, disconnect (the drive form the computer), reboot, reconnect, reboot once again and see if it picks up the way it was meant to.
Hope this has been of help please leave rating
thank you.

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.

I need to know how can I boot from my usb flash thanks


You need to know if your motherboard can do this option.
Enter setup otion generaly when you turn your computer on press the DEL key and you are in the BIOS SETUP configuration. Go to the BOOT SEQUENCE and if it is possible choose USB option.Place this option on the first place with the UP or DOWN keys. For exemple fist boot drive : USB second boot drive HDD ,...
You must format your USB device as SYSTEM ! and have the system installed on it. You can find on the Web a light version of WINDOWS XP called LIGHT to put it on your USB device I think it is an USB flash drive, Is it?
If it is an external HDD you can install the entire system of Windows and boot by it bur select the right boot sequence in the BIOS setup.

For usb


Try a generic USB mass storage device driver such as this one: http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/win98se-usb-mass-storage-drivers.php

Make sure you have the Second Edition of Windows 98 (Win98 SE). Pendrives will not work at all with the first edition of Windows 98 or with Windows 95.

Soyo Cigar HD20 Does Not Work in Windows 2000 Pro


Windows XP has built-in support for lots of USB devices, W2K doesn't. I went to the Soyo download site and it appears that your device has been discontinued, however, they do have driver downloads for Windows 98. I?ve had limited success with using W98 drivers in W2K but be prepared for odd behavior. Here is the link for the download: http://www.soyo.com/downloads/selectresults.php?language=English&col1=+Portable+Storage&col2=297&col3=All Good luck and please don?t forget to rate this post.
