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.

    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 ****.

Transferring an xp3 pc image to a computer presently using Win 7


You might be lucky, but I don't think it will work. If the hardware is different XP will complain or simply not work.
Why do you want to transfer XP on to a machine that is running Windows 7. Win 7 is much more stable and is still supported.

How do I transfer files from Windows 98se to Vista on my new computer


If you have a CD/DVD writer, you can write the files to a CD-R. If this is not an option, take out the HDD from he Win 98se machine and install it in the vista machine, if you have room. you might need to disconnect your CD/DVD drive in your vista machine to free up the EIDE ribbon cable.

option 3:
Win 98se can do USB, but not very well. And drivers are hard to come by for usb flash drives. Vista/XP/ win 2000 can handle them without needing a driver disk. Therefore you will need a new OS for the win 98se machine. How about linux, it can handle usb flash drives very well. My advice use Ubuntu linux, you don't need to install it, just get a boot CD. it boots the OS from the CD, does not install or format anything. Use that OS to copy the necessary files to the flash drive. This option requires you to have a cd burner or access to one, so not really saving any time.

http://www.ubuntu.com/

You did not give ne a lot of information about your setup. Like do you have a cd/dvd burner, any usb ports, any spare HDD, any external media storage. Do you have any burning software like nero. So pick which option that is viable.

You can also take your computer to best buy and have them back up the data on a CD/DVD disc for a price. Best Buy is not the only shop that does this type of service, check in your area.
