But the USB flash drive is formated and is good. If possible, Without having to reinstall driver package, I would like to know which dll is messed up or missing?

Any one know? Or have any ideas.

Ref: current Windows 98FE package. (Package works great, except it killed an application. replacing the problem dll, killed the OS. Reinstalled Windows 98FE.)

The hard drive is probably formatted with NTFS, which cannot be read in Windows 98. Have a look at this thread for more details:
External Hard Drive Recognised but not available
