hi, had my grandaughter on the phone, she has a usb stick which, according to her, they use to do their homework, she has plugged it into the laptop, win98, and it does not show, she wants to transfer her work from a floppy disk, can someone give me a few pointers she can look at as to why it is not working, thanks, the stick itself worked at school today..

thanks

I think Win 98 needs a driver which will be on a CD you get with the drive.

just rung her, and she says it had no cd with it.

thanks

does she have internet on her laptop, if so tell her to go on windows update and download drivers.
Sorry if this seems to much.

not sure if drivers can be download from windows 98 on windows update

If all else fails I have a w98 driver that came with my USB stick that I can email to you, although of course it's not guaranteed to work.

She needs to got to the Manufacturers Site to see if they supply Win98se drivers. You will not get it to work without

hi again, it appears that it is a mikomi stick, and we can not find a website, her next move seems to be to try to find someone else with a pc, her school friends live miles away, she has only got dial up, but thanks for all the help.

USBstor is a generic driver for USB pen drives try click here you need to register but its free.

Driver is quite small and should download easily on dial up.
