I hope someone out there can help. My workstation is a Celeron 400 with 64Mb RAM, no CD rewriter and Windows 95 build 4.00.950.B, which is a pretty shocking pile, to be honest.
However, being linked up to the server of one of the world's largest IT companies, it does offer absolutely blistering download speeds.
Having checked with my boss, she is happy for me to use this facility during breaks/lunch etc, as long as no data is saved onto any of the multiple HDDs on the network.
Since I would rarely have the need for downloading files larger than 150 megs, I have had the genius idea of using my Sony Memory Stick Walkman, which uses Memory Stick Duo storage & USB 1.0, to download the files straight on to.
However, a few questions: on my XP & ME machines at home, the drivers for the walkman are installed, and the o/s sees the walkman as a removeable disk. Will 95 be able to do this?
If not, is there a USB powered pen/cartridge/adapter that will take Memory Stick Duo? Speed is not an issue (plus 95 won't support USB 2), but a simple compatible way of transferring files from the internet to my memory card is.
Any ideas? Anyone attempted such things on an older PC? It does have a couple of USB slots on the back, so hopefully it won't be a problem...
I don't know if this helps, but before I touch any drivers on this PC, if I go to Device Manager, the final entry is USB controller, and on branching this out, we've got "Intel(r) 82801AA USB Universal Host Controller" and "USB Root Hub".
Both devices are working properly, but neither have a driver file assigned to them.
It may be that this PC was originally used for programming non-PC terminals etc.
As far as I can tell, that's USB enabled though, isn't it?
Plug the memory stick into the USB port, and see what happens. If a windows pops up acknowleding that an unknown USB deivice has been inserted, then you know that the PC is certainly USB enabled. Its then a case of finding a Windows 95 driver for your particular brand of memory stick.
