I have a cruzer micro 2 gb U3 smart, I have tried to install on win98 with all different types of downloads and nothing works. I am willing to buy a new flash drive I just need one that will work on win98 to be used often from one computer to another. Please help I need this to do some Church stuff for a small church.

Thanks for any help,
Tammy

For win98 you will need drivers from the manufacturers. Have you tried this one?

The drivers from here should work fine. If not, then make sure you delete all entries in Other Devices in Device Manager and try removing and reinserting the flash drive. If this doesn't work, let us know any devices that have a problem in Device Manager.

I have already tried that and it doesn't work for a U3 card.

I think it should work. Your drive is probably formatted with NTFS - see this thread.
