I have a PNY Attache 2GB flash drive and was given a CD containing a driver for using the drive with Windows 98SE but nobody provides instructions anymore.
How do I use these items? Do I put the CD in the drive before inserting the flash drive or after? Do I have to copy the driver to some file or just leave it in the drive? Is it OK to insert and remove the flash drive while the PC is on?
Hi JessGus - classic! Love the way you silenced the masses in one sentence!! Now I have had a good laugh, CD comes first. The driver must be installed so Win98 knows what you've plugged in. when you put in the CD, open the folder and look for a file ending .exe (most win98 driver discs have an executable installer). Double click this and follow the instructions. You may need to reboot after installation but you will be advised of this. After reboot, plug in USB drive and you may need to run through a simple setup wizard (some win98 mass storage devices want you to name them etc. at this point), otherwise, you're ready to transfer files as you wish. Never remove a flash drive while transferring data but it's fine to do so when dormant. If unsure, hit the 'safely remove hardware' icon in the system tray. Hope this helps, Scott
