I've installed Spanish Version of Windows 98 SE Mass Storage Device Drivers on my Compaq Presario 4111LA Serie 4000 to work with Data Traveler Kingston 4Mb. The driver let me recognize de DTI , but don't copy files on pen drive. Could help me? Thanks

{Post split to new topic as different issue to where originally posted}

Can you read the drive, but not write to it, or both?

It sounds like the drive itself may be faulty. I would try formatting the drive to see if that helps - this will delete any data on the drive.

Thanks for help me. I've tried to format the flash drive on my PC with Windows 98SE but I cann't. appear the following message: "No se puede dar formato al disco porque se produjo un error mientras se intentaba formatear el área de la tabla de asignación de archivos. El disco está dañado y tendrá que ser reemplazado" (The drive can not be formatted because a something it´s wrong while File Allocation Table was trying to be formatted. The drive is damage and have to be replaced).

Then, I have formatted the Flash Drive on a Notebook with Windows XP. The drive was formatted on FAT32. The flash drive was OK on the Windows XP for copy a file on it, and to write and read it.

When I have plugged again the flash drive to the PC with Windows 98SE, I cuold read the file and the flash drive was recognized rigthly. But I couldn't to copy a file OK. Again the mesage: Write Error. It's not possible write on the disk of E:

What do you think about that? Is it not posible work with this Flash Drive on Windows 98SE?

Again, Thank you for your help and excuse my english

It is odd that the drive will work on one PC but not another. It could just be incompatibility, however I'm not convinced. I would try the drive in a different USB slot, and also ensure you don't have any other USB devices connected to see if this makes any difference.

I try the drive in a different USB slot and unplugged all USB devices connected (a Hub with 4 devices) without good results. Do you think I could proof another way?

I'm not sure what else you can do other than maybe speak to the manufacturer/vendor.
