I have bought a 512mb memory stick, i can use it easily on my laptop which has windows XP on it BUT i cannot use it on my computer which uses windows 98, the computer does not realise that i have just plugged in the stick and no icons or files show that it is connetcted to the computer.
dont want to bring a gloomy outlook, but my grandaughter got a memory stick for her 98laptop, and we never did get it to work, that never came with any drivers, and even asking on here is was no go.......
Try your USB stick under Windows XP. This will recognise it and a small box will pop up identifying the manufacturer of the stick. With that information go search for that manufacturer's web site on the Net. Most likely they will have a Windows 98 driver for it.
