Hi there Just bought game controller, but when I plug it into USB socket a message comes up asking me for Windows 98 CD-ROM. But apparently PC's don't come with this anymore and I can't find one at home. I have something called a recovery disk, but when I phoned the shop I got the controller from they said DON'T insert this because it will reset everything. When I clicked OK without inserting anything, another box came up giving me options like 'skip file' and other options. Some advice would be appreciated Thanks
Try this uninstall, any software that came with the game controller ,go into device manager remove any entries listed as "Unknown" or with Yelow" exclamation marks and any other entries associated with your game controller Then unplug the controller from your USB port and restart the computer
Now goto Start, Search/Find Files & Folders, type *.cab in the box then search the C:\ drive this should find the Windows Cab files that would be copied during the install
They would normally be found in the
C:\Windows\Options\Cabs Folder but not always
Now follow the install instructions, or put in the drivers CD and let it autorun, when prompted plug in the USB device this time when you are prompted for the Windows 98 CD chose the browse option and steer the installer to where the search found the Windows Cab Files
Hi again Cheers for your advice TOSH and Woodchip. I followed your advice TOSH but am still stuck. The problem is there is nothing installed at all to do with game controller. According to the controller instructions, when Windows is running I plug controller into USB terminal. Then I get a couple of windows saying finding driver etc, then the message comes up about inserting Windows CD-ROM (which I haven't got) even before anything has been installed.
If I click OK without inserting anything I get another box with an option to "skip file". Should I do this, or is it risky? Spoke to someone recently who said not to do this if it asks for Windows CD-ROM. Some help if possible Thanks
