Question about SanDisk 2GB Cruzer Micro SDCZ62048A10 Hard Drive

1 Answer

Need flash drive for my Windows 98SE

I need a flash drive for my Win 98SE so I can transfer data to a new computer, XP. All I can figure out is that flash drives do not work for Win 98SE, and when they do, they are not reliable. I read that I would need a driver or drivers for USB port. Help would be most appreciative.

    Dear FixYa Team:

    Thanks for your email guiding me to your
    site to download a driver for Flash Drive. I have Windows 98SE, and would like
    to activate the USB flash drive. I am not successful. I have on my desktop now
    the following: 1) usb-test-tool-exe, and 2) oem-ufd-98-driver.zip. When I choose
    Number One, I get a window stating: "Unable to locate USB Drive. Please verify
    USB Drive is plugged in or Administrative privilege is required." My flash drive
    is plugged in, yet, apparently it cannot be found. When I attempt to open Number
    two, it is directed to my Imagining for Windows file, and the following
    window states: "This documents format is invalid or not supported." I have no
    idea how to proceed. Please help a drowning PC user.

    If it is a Cruzer Micro, do you know if is U3 ready or a plain flash driver?

    Thanks,

    Who is the maker of your main system board. If it is Dell, include the Service Tag number. If it is HP/Compaq provide the model serial number from the back of the case.

    Also, include the actual model of your flash drive. Is it actually a 2GB Cruzer Micro?

    Thanks,
    WV

    Were these files downloaded from the San Disk web site?

    You can go to the San Disk web site and they have an install download available for you to download. Do a Google search for "San Disk home page". That should get you started.

If it's a sandisk cruiser micro U3 2Gig flash stick God help you.

windows 98 se had serious USB issues and lack of support of any kind for USB 2.0

USB 2.0 can be done ONLY if you have USB 2.0 ports ( chip )

and ONLY if you have loaded XP professional 2002 WITH service pack 2 ,,, it's time to slap these vendors around for lying and lying about USB 2.0

the bright side is , it's not broken , more than likely an XP pro 2002 with service pack 2 will see the stick right off the bat

if that happens , then you know it's the fault of the computer that can't see the durn thing.

it's time to slap sandisk up side the head for lack of clear cut documentation on this issue.

for example my vista machine can't see mine anymore but my XP professional 2002 with service pack 2 sure the heck can.

that just goes to show you vista is stupid and so was windows 98 and aren't we all tired of this ****.

Hi

Transferring file from your computer to external hard drive is very easy, just copy and paste all the files you needed to the external hard drive.

Reinstalling Windows XP would be quite difficult. Make sure you have Windows XP installer CD and all the utility hardware driver of your computer e.g. Chipset driver, Sound driver, VGA driver, WAN driver, LAN driver and others. If you do not have the Utility drivers, just download the complete set of utility driver in the internet. Most of them are free to downloads.

Here is the procedure with video on how to reinstall the Windows XP operating system (step by step) http://www.fixya.com/support/r7410371-reinstall_windows_xp_or_installing_clean

Please rate and make a comment if you find this solution very helpful and might help others as well. Post more comments if you need more help.

You would access it from My Computer like your normal harddrive. Note if the removable drive is showing up in My Computer then this is a sign that another device is already been assigned to the drive your USB drive wants by default. The links below will help you assign a drive letter to the USB drive.
