Uh...you might want to upgrade to an operating system that's newer than
10 years old.

(Like Vista ...?)

Effectively you mean buy a new PC, which may happen one day, unless
you've found a way of installing XP (or Vista, ha) on a Pentium III.

Windows 2000 runs on a Pentium III and is way more stable than Windows 98.

I spose it might be worth a go at some point. I will look into it.
Thanks.

You need to install the USB Mass Storage Device in Win98. The files
you will need are 'USBSTOR.SYS' and 'USBNTMAP.SYS.' Both of these
files should be copied to your 'C:/WIndows/System32/Drivers' folder.
When Windows looks for the driver, point it to that folder. You might
already have usbstor.sys on your machine, but probably will not have
usbntmap.sys. If so, do a Google search for the file/s or find
someone with a copy of WinME, which will have the files.
