I need to take some date from an old win 98 system to a vista laptop the only method to do this is with a usb stick vista recognises the usb but win 98 doesn't - it searches for the driver but as it isnt connected to the net can't find it so the question is - will the usb work with win 98 and vista and if so how do I get the drivers onto the win 98 pc thanks for any help

I forgot there was no more 'Yellow envelope system', perhaps this can be rectified in a future Tweak.

His windows 98 system has working USB

However 98 does not have generic drivers for memory sticks (not invented when 98 came out)

the machine has no internet connection and his CD drive is broken so he cannot download drivers or install from CD.

The only solution is to take the HD out and put it in a Caddy, then

Or possibly to link the 2 PCs with a CAT5 cable but I think that that could bring a similar set of problems.
