You can lock the USB drive by editing the registry. So I’ll tell the key name and the value, that you have to create for the restriction. If the key is not present, then simply create it.So here we go:

Restrict Writing to USB Drives:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Current Control Set\Control\StorageDevicePolicies

Create DWORD value WriteProtect and set its value to 1


ALso, please click on the link mentioned below for more information:

You can also use third party software to lock the USB drives:

I have a gateway kav60,it does'nt have a cd rom or a floppy drive, how can fix a problem take's a disc. it say's it has a bad file or missing some files.


You will have to get an external CD ROM or floppy drive to plug into your USB port. Most electronic stores will have the CD ROM drive and Best Buy can order the external floppy if they don't have one in stock.

Installation


You need to use floppy disks (called boot disks) to boot DOS with cd-rom drivers, because the win98 cd isn't bootable by default.

I suggest you to go to http://www.bootdisk.com/bootdisk.htm and grab the respective windows 98 boot disk.

You will need a functional computer to write the disk image into the floppy.

After that put the boot order in BIOS as floppy first.

Once you see DOS prompt A:\> just access your cd-rom drive like d: or e: and then type install

Microsoft Windows 98 for PC Problem is there any software driver for pen drive so that my win98 o.s. computer can detect any type or companies pen drive plz tell me


wow, the 90's are a calling... sure their is a roumor of a usb pen driver for win 98' ....

 

Windows 98, especially in it's second edition (also known as Windows 98SE), handles USB fairly well, however there are no generic/universal mass storage device drivers preinstalled in the operating system, so you will need to install some additional drivers for it. Some manufacturers do however, provide the Windows 98 drivers on CD, others have them available to download, and others simply do not have them available at all!!!!!!!

 

generic Windows 98SE USB mass storage device drivers:

 

http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/drivers/nusb31e.exe

 

instructions?? :

  1. Download the exe file to the desktop
  2. Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
  3. Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
  4. Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager (*carefull)
  5. Run the exe file you downloaded, and follow the instructions, rebooting after installation
  6. When the computer boots up again, it may detect new USB 2.0 controllers, in which case you may need to reboot again

 

as always good luck! now im going to go back to my windows 95 and play Bioshock on full graphics!! excuse me = )
