|Hey guys, i know that alot of people have trouble using a USB HD on windows98se. Well i was too, i was using seagate 100GB USB 2.0 external and for some reason my computer kept crashing , it will say " found new hardware, install software " but the hourglass will just sit there. I thought my PSU unit which is 90watts was too low to handle it.
So anyway, my friend came over with his:
Western Digital - My Book Essential 1000GB External Hard Drive
AND WOW, it works like a charm. I didnt even have to install any drivers or anything, the message came up tho: " Found new hardware, installing software " and no problems whatsoever.
It only took like 1 min to recognize it.
Bestbuy has many on sale, i'm picking up this one tomorrow:
Note: This might work different on certain computers, but the bottom line it seems like Western Digital might work better on windows98se. Just a thought, so try it out!
Note: I think you have to download these drivers from the main site tho:
They seem to work perfect!
