Hi,
I have a Windows98SE and have bought a USB 2.0 flash drive. I have managed to install it on the computer and the icon is on the base line of the computer. When I go into edit and select all (for the documents I want to save onto the flash drive) and then go into file and press "send to" I do not get disc E as being available to send anything to. Please explain how I can get an icon on the "Send to" page within "file".
Hope you can help
Many thanks

Browse to \Windows\SendTo\ then drag the icon for your USB drive in My Computer in to this folder - it should create a shortcut there. Now when you right click and go to Send To you should be able to send things to the drive.

Exactly how did you manage to install the USB flash drive so that Win98se will recognize it?

If you follow the instructions on the webpage it should work. What exactly is the problem? If you have USB drives showing with problems in Device Manager, usually deleting them and redetecting them will resolve it - this happens where you have tried to install drivers for the drive before you installed the generic drivers. If it detects but does not appear in My Computer, then it is probably either formatted with NTFS or has no partition on it.
