Hello salman.
this problem occurs as the computer cannot find suitable generic driver for ur usb pendrive.
might be the other computer might have higer version like xp service pack 2.
so plz try installing service pack 2 or search for driver on net.and install the driver for ur pendrive by selecting it as u connect ur pendrive to comuter.

I have kingston 4GB pen drive which is malfunctioned & getting error unknown device click this message for assistance in solving problem..please help..

This is a very common problem with external devices. Sometimes, you connect it and it would work fine and other times it may not.
All you need to do is to change the USB port to which it was connected to another one. Also, it might require you to connect the device and restart the computer. This is sure to work. If it doesn't, then you may have to call a technician.
Hope this helped?

W98SE Driver for Kingston 1.0Gb DataTraveller Flash Drive

The people at your local computer shop are wrong but, Windows 98 should at least recognize the USB thumb-drive and ask for drivers.
I would remove all the USB Controllers from within Device Manager and restart; allow Windows upon restart to reload the USB Controllers; then plug in the drive and see if Windows at least recognizes and then install drivers.
It seems only the DTI/XX, KUSBDTE/XX, and DTII/XX support Windows 98.
