wondering if anyone can help me , my friend has just got a old pc with windows millenium edition but it wont even register new hardware when we plugged in a usb pen storage , when i found device it says no driver present ,when i tryed to update driver it asked for windows disk , friend only got a handfull of disks and none were windows or backup storage pen site has a driver available for windows 98 and that led to first question , will 98 drivers be ok in ME edition ?
storage device = http://www.datasafe-media.com/?page=support

ohh yeh ,,,when i tryed to install driver and it asked for windows disk it reported that file usbstor.sys and another file was missing , i have been able to find the first 2 files it asked for on some dodgy looking websites and was wondering if installing them whould maybe solve problem ( not if its a case of having to find about 50 files )

thanks for any help that can be provided Very Happy

No, Windows 98 drivers will not work for this. Windows ME has built in mass storage drivers, so you should not need them. It sounds like the Windows installation is corrupted and needs to be sorted out, without a Windows Me disk, this will be virtually impossible to do.
