Upgrade Win 98 to accommodate Dimage camera

  Gusto 21:31 03 Aug 2005

My Dimage Z2 camera talks to Xp well but my lap-top has Win 98 whereas the Dimage requires Win 98 SE.
I noted that "Stuartli" spent many hours upgrading from 98 to SE. Is there any simple method of upgrading just enough for the camera?

These click here work from 98 to 98SE as well.

I have XP Pro...:-)

I've upgraded a friend's desktop system from 98 to 98SE, plus the bits and bobs, over the past few days...:-)))

According to the manual, it should run on 98? Does it say so in your manual? It may be that it needs a powered hub to run it?click here

It also says click here. So a powered hub may be of no use. Could it be that the laptop is not providing enough power for it?

Just a thought.

Thanks for the replies. I contacted Konica Minolta and their reply simply confirmed that the Dimage will run only on 98SE or later - despite what it says in the manual. I thought that Microsoft might give a download but if so their web-site defeated me!
