I would first like to say hi to everybody. Great supporting network you have. I have a problem in getting my Windows SE to read my USB Flash Drive, and I hope you guys can help me out:

This is a little blue plastic covered USB drive, no brand. The package just says "Flash" "USB2.0", "USBFlash Drive" on the front. On the back of the package, it says this device can be used as USB 1.1 with windows 98, 98SE, ME and Mac OS but not USB2.0, so I guess I can still use it with Windows 98SE with no problem.

The problem is, Windows 98SE identifies it as "Mass Storage", but cannot find a driver for it. I installed nusb22e.exe,nusb30e.exe, and nusb31e.exe once at a time. After reboosting, my computer still doesn't seem to notice that the flash drive is there.

One catch is that I have the driver for a memorex flash drive installed, and I did not remove all the drives under Universal Serial Bus Controller when I installed your programs (I think some of them are needed for printers and scanners). They are:

Universal Serial Bus controllers:
Generic USB Hub
USB Root Hub
USB Root Hub
Via Tech 3038 PCI to USB Unversal Host Controller
Via Tech 3038 PCI to USB Unversal Host Controller

(unknown why something appears twice)

Any feedback would be much appreciative. I will post pictures of my flash drive and the package it is in if that helps. Thank you so much.

In Device Manager do you get anything that says 'Other Devices', or 'Unknown device' when the USB drive is connected? If so you should remove these entries, unplug the drive and reconnect it.

Hi, thanks for replying. It says "unknown device", and under it there is "mass storage." I removed it, unplug and plug back in. Now it is back to the beginning: Windows recognizes the plug-in, "Add new hardware wizard" pops up, but cannot find the driver for it:

In the Wizard, I can either "search for the best driver", which Windows will connect to "Microsoft Windows Update", and "unable to locate a driver"

or I can "display a list of all the drivers in a specific location", which will give me a list of stuff but I don't know what to choose from (I would imagine your generic driver should be here somewhere).

I hope to receive more helps. Thank you very much.

Hi, thank you very much. I have uninstalled my Memorex driver, then do it over again and it works! Your software is absolutely terrific, allowing me to use both Memorex and my USB drive!!! Thanks again!!!!
