is mentioned a generic USB driver for Win98 (which does not have a native driver for USB) and a third party Service Pack 3, which may (indeed should) have a DVD driver for W98. Try them, but scan for malware.
Windows 98 needs an USB driver for your adapter. A USB driver should have come with your adapter, if not got to the adapter manufacturer's WEB site and download a Windows 98 USB driver that is specific to your adapter.
What version of Windows are you using? What happens when you plug in a USB device? Any error messages? Check your BIOS and see if the ports are enabled. If theyre not, then enable them. If youre running Windows 98 Second Edition or newer, the USB port drivers are typically built in. If all else fails, you can purchase and install a USB card. If its an older machine, get the 2 port card, otherwise, the 4 or more port card will suffice. (Some 4 or more port cards dont play nice in older machines.)
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.
you will need the usb port drivers for windows 98 and the usb drivers for the printer as the earlier windows 98 had'nt the usb drivers included with operating system an as the new motherboards came about with usb ports then a new in 98 was needed to catter for this that's why you have win 98 first edition and win 98 se edition please chech that you have the driuvers installed for both parts to work.
