Hello / Help please !

With reference to the above, ( Driver install version 3.x ...?)

I followed instructions on this web site regarding " To install the drivers " but believe I have messed-up with regard to instruction " Remove all drivers for USB ".
I think that not only have I " Removed all drivers for USB" , but also may have removed USB "controller" device(s) ie . the devices the USB drivers relate to ?...................as upon inspection in Device Manager, there is now no reference to USB Controllers , nor , USB Drivers referring thereto. ie it is all blank, in the USB area.

Please advise, as needless to say , the install procedure did not work, and I need to clear this point with regard to "USB controllers" devices, before I try again.
The Windows 98 SE computer involved belongs to a friend , and has no internet access
Thank you

Hi Alan

Do you get any devices in Device Manager in a section called Other Devices or do you get any devices with an exclamation mark next to them? If so, what do they show as?

Thank you Softstag for your reply.

I am at a disadvantage here in that I do not have access to my friend's computer for a while.

However , from my memory, There are devices in Device Manager, in the section "Other Devices".

No devices seen with an exclamation mark next to them.

Now to change direction, ...apologies for that.
My friend's computer is very old, and difficult to negotiate around , and it will be disposed of very soon, after hopefully the extraction of photo's etc,

Would it be particularly difficult /expensive to remove the Hard drive ,and transfer data via a Caddy , with USB connection, to the new computer ?
Thanks again , much appreciated,
ALAN

Hi Softstag, just a quick follow up on my previous reply,

I should explain that what I meant with regard to my "the change of direction " , was an alternative way to the solving the problem , other than proceeding with the Mass Storage Device Drivers etc, route,

ie: not a new subject raised.

Alan.

Removing the hard drive and putting it in a caddy isn't that difficult to do, they aren't too expensive either. Although, it's a lot more hassle than just getting the data off to a flash drive!
