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.

NTLDR compressed on a Compaq Presario SR105CL cant enter bios to set to boot


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source. Computer hard disk drive is not properly setup in BIOS. Corrupt NTLDR and NTDETECT.COM file. Misconfiguration with the boot.ini file. Attempting to upgrade from a Windows 95, 98, or ME computer that is using FAT.32 New hard disk drive being added. Corrupt boot sector / master boot record. Seriously corrupted version of Windows 2000 or Windows XP. Loose or Faulty IDE/EIDE hard disk drive cable. Failing to enable USB keyboard support in the BIOS. Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD ROM First verify that no Floppy Diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette. b> Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer. If you are attempting to BOOT from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt. If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive. Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt. Press any key to boot from the CD

Hi im new at this and not shure how to use this 4gb flash drive,i installed it in to the usb port and nothing came up ,can you help to tell me how you work it i have a sony pc with windows xp


Firstly, make sure you're logged in an admin account
  1. Click Start > Run
  2. Type diskmgmt.msc & press Enter
  3. If the initialisation wizard doesn't pop up automatically, scroll down the bottom half of the list to find your flash drive (starts with disk 0, disk 1 etc).
  4. Right click the unallocated space of the flash drive and click Format
  5. Follow the onscreen prompts.
If you can't see your flash drive in the list, try another USB port.

I just installed usb 2 pci card in an old win98 pc after installing drivers from the cd.Device manager says it's working but when I plug anything into the usp port a window pops up telling me I need to...


That is a common thing with the early win 98 os and newer hardware.

You really should consider an upgrade to at least 98SE or even WINDOWS ME.

The machine will struggle with USB 2.0 and you are open to a whole lot of little glitches

Need help transfering data from IBM Aptiva to Dell computer


Sounds like the older computer is a 98 machine - Data Traveler does not have 98 drivers due to its size. Your best bet is to find a smaller flash drive that is 98 compatible - or depending on the size of the data you could e-mail it to yourself.

Drivers


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).

I have Windows 98 and I need to download drivers for my USB DRIVE HOW AND WHERE CAN i DOWNLOAD


First you need win98SE (the Second Edition), still not sure that it will work I guess you try to conect a USB 2.0 device, I think that it will be better if you buy a 4 port USB 2.0 PCI card, install in an empty mainboard slot then install the USB drivers that come with the card and connect the device, be sure to ask the dealer for compatibility before you buy.

Hard drive driver problem


Hi,

It is possible that your hard drive is a SATA and therefore not readily readable by 98, XP but surprised not even by Vista. In any case, since you would still prefer to run XP (due to other software compatibility issues), pls press F6 when prompted by the XP installer. Additionally, you would need to have ready in a floppy the appropriate SATA drivers for your motherboard. They maybe downloaded from the motherboard manufacturer's website or possibly in the installer/driver CD that came with the PC.

Other than the above, it is also possible that you may have some issues with the availability of XP drivers for the other devices for that computer specially if it is branded.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I just bought a usb2.0 Flash Drive and I don't know how to use it in my computer what are guides to follow?


Just plug the drive into your USB port, Windows will detect it and install the software.
Open Windows Explorer and you will see it listed as a removable device. It will probably need to be formatted first, but Windows will advise if this is needed.
After that, you can use it like it was a hard drive, just copy and paste files to it.
