In attempting to install USB 2.0 Flash drive, Windows 98 Wizard tells me that the drive is not compatible and to install it will damage my computer, either now or in the future. Should I carry on with the installation although Windows strongly advises not to.

How do I get print perfect gold to work in windows 7


Windows 7 has compatibility modes.
Windows 7 should read the CD (so let's start there) - is CD damaged/scratch/see-through on any parts? If so you will need another CD. (Or clean download of files from a CD).
IF CD is in good shape - find a WinXP/Vista computer that you can use for about 20 minutes - Copy CD to USB Flash drive (flash drive needs to NTFS format). Verify Files (compare them CD/USB - they should be identical - no other files on the USB drive).
Take USB drive to your Win7 computer - right click Set-up on USB - run in compatibility mode - WinXP or WinVista (either will run Print Perfect Pro).
Follow install - make sure to point to C: for the install and point to the USB drive for where to get data.

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 drive for transcend d33193 usbdrive


I think this is a Windows 98 forum. If so, I may have a solution.

Download and install this free (Generic Storage USB Device) driver named "wtgenusb-zip" from DriverGuide.com. Register with DriverGuide.com for free membership. Use their search tools using keywords like "Window 98", "USB", "Storage" and look for "wtgenusb-zip".

It's a rediculously small file to download, only 11Kb. The "zip" file must be extracted which can be done on any computer running Windows XP, then copy the files over on a floppy disk. However extracting it on a computer running Windows 98 will require a seperate program like "Winzip" or "Pkunzip" (for DOS).

Copy the extracted files to any folder of your choice on your Win98 machine. Use the "Install Hardware Wizard" to navigate to that folder to install the driver to enable your USB storage device.

WTGENUSB worked great for me, permitting my Win98 to access my USB Flash drives, 250Gb Portable hard drive, and Digital Camera card reader. Good luck.

Go to ADD HARDWARE and try to force the install.

Just so you know, Optima Pro Attaché USB 2.0 Flash Drive was designed with Windows Vista in mind, and works in conjunction with new SuperFetch (intelligent caching) to enhance system performance for quicker startup and windows multi-tasking.
But it's also compatible with most PC/MAC laptop and desktop computers with available USB 2.0 port (Backwards compatible to USB 1.0).

NOTE: You may have to scroll down to see this option. 5. Uncheck the following items: * 256 colors * 640 X 480 Screen Resolution * Disable Visual Themes 6. Click Next. 7. Click Next again. The PhotoMAX software will begin installing. Follow the on-screen prompts. 8. Follow on-screen prompts to finish the installation and click Finish. 9. When the Compatibility Wizard asks if the program worked correctly select Yes and click Next. 10.
