Hi people,

Great forum, thanks.

I have just joined because I have a problem. No surprises there I guess. I have an old Toshiba laptop which I need to run some old equipment with win98SE. I am trying to encourage it to read a USB flash drive so can transfer drivers for the old equipment.

I have tried everything and am about to format the hard drive and start with a fresh installation of 98SE. Thought I'd ask here first.

I searched this site and read a great deal on the win98SE and USB issues. I tried NUSB23E, NUSB31E and both of them return, "this is not compatible with this version of windows you are using..."

The version of 98 I am using is shown as 4.1.1998

Is this really 98SE?

If NOT then I need to reformat the drive and install 98SE which I have.

That brings the next problem. I have formatted a disk with system files but I need to know what drivers to put in the AUTOEXEC.BAT or CONFIG.SYS file for start up to run the CD drive to install from.

Thanks so far.

Dave

Not sure where you are getting that version number from. Look in System Properties (right click My Computer and select Properties) - is should tell you you are running Windows 98 Second Edition if you are on SE.
