direct connection using usb cable

By cyberjan ·
I am trying to copy files from my notebook 98[2]
to my PC XP with a usb cable.
The direct connection wizard only gives me options for everything else but usb.
How do I tell the PC to look for a usb connection?

Try connecting the usb and then going to Add new Hardware in your control Panel and then if it finds it follow the easy directions on the screen.

Thanks I did and xp said it couldnt find the software and didnt install.
The I went to 98 notebook and used direct connection. It showed 2 ports lpt1 and com1 when I clicked new port it could not find one.
In new hardware, it couldnt find any.
USB controllers are shown in the divise manager.

In Network adapters, intrared is shown, but not USB.

Are you using a 'standard' USB cable?
Or, a USB data transfer cable?

You need to use a data transfer cable. The electronics inside the cable should be recognized as a data transfer port.

Did you install the software that came with the USB data transfer cable and then used that program to connect the two computers?
