Generic Driver for Thumb/Pen Drive?

  JT2 15:01 15 Jan 2006


What can you do if you got an off-brand thumb drive (bmcSoftware / REMEDY),
128MB, probably made in China, that gets a bit warm and seems to work OK in
Win XP but has no driver for Win 98?

Is there some kind of universal generic driver for these things for win 98 use?

I have another thumb drive (256MB) w/driver for Win 98. Works OK.

Why not just "bump" your original thread?

OK. Really appreciate all that help - exspecially also that last one from 'softstag'. If nothing else, that should do it.

Unfortunately am out of town now, and will be helping out old friend for couple months or so.
I will try these potential solutions when get back to my win98 comp and try let you all know.

Thanx all,

Thanx v. much - recap, Stuartli, softstag - for
all your input. I've been out of it for a while
and just browsing thru to jog my rotten memory.
Had too many other pc faults to attend to.

If I recall, I directed the party concerned to this thread. Haven't heard from him


Right now am downloading all your links for my
own ref as it's valuable stuff I may need again.

In fact, another friend of a friend came by the other day with a Compaq LapTop (Win

XP SP2) that
wouldn't recognize a brand new USB Keyboard, and now, a certain USB Thumb Drive

which works OK at DeskTop pc's but not at his LapTop.

Had to put this on the side burner too as, again, unfortunately, have to make

another move shortly and no time to mess.

Anyhow, must be something wrong with his installation or USB controller, whatever.

provide any more details just now except that his LapTop does work OK w/ certain

other USB keyboards and Thumb Drives.

Thanx again gents and I'll be back to check

JT2 :)
