I would be grateful for some advice.

I would like to use a flash drive on my computer (Windows 98 SE) and am following the instructions given elsewhere on this Forum.

The instructions state:

Remove ALL drivers for USB flash drives in Device Manager
Remove ALL drivers for any USB 2.0 controllers (many have an uninstall option)
Remove ALL unknown devices from Device Manager


When I open the Device Manager, the following are listed under Universal Serial Bus controllers:

Intel 82801AA USB Universal Host Controller
USB 2.0 Root Hub
USB Root Hub
USB Root Hub
USB Root Hub
VIA PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller
VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
VIA Tech 3038 PCI to USB Universal Host Controller
Universal Serial Bus Controller


What I need to know is whether I should remove all of those? If not, which ones should I remove ?

Many thanks in advance for your assistance.

You shouldn't need to remove any of these - just install the drivers.

Thank you for your prompt response.

I did as you suggested but, unfortunately, the installation was unsuccessful.

The computer did not recognise the flash drive afterwards and in the Device Manager, it showed:

? Other Devices

? Disk 2.0

Is there anything else I can try, please ?

With the flash drive connected, remove these to items from Device Manager, then remove the drive, and reconnect it. The computer should detect the drive and install it correctly then.

SUCCESS !!!

As you suggested, I removed the two items from Device Manager but it was not then necessary to remove the flash drive as the computer immediately came up with the message that it was searching for the drivers ...............which it then found !

I will now be able to transfer data easily from my old computer to my new.

Thank you very much indeed for your good advice. I am very grateful.
