dear member, any some body know
what the software for all drive of usb flash disk can be read by the differents company of USB flash disk in
windows 98 se edition?

Windows 98 SE will allow you to use USB flash drives, but you will need to install a seperate driver for each flash disk you use.

If you want to use USB flash drives without manually installing drivers, you will need to use Windows 2000 or Windows XP

they were working on a generic usb driver but that was last year and i didnt hear anything on that so yea youll have to get the drivers manually for each one. its not a big deal find the model of it and type it into google and you can find it quite easily. or go to the companys website.

In actual fact, there is an unoffical generic driver for Win 98. This should work with all USB Mass Storage devices in the English version of Win 98 and Win 98se. You can download it from this link:

Windows 98se Generic Flash Driver

Install it and let me know if it works.

Hope this helps.

Softstag you're a star.

Only today I was looking for this sort of driver, so I'm going to download it and put it to the test.

If it works, you could have solved a problem for a huge global tech company.

I will make sure they know where I got the info from, many thanks in avance again.
