Check the Manufacturer web site...

to see if they have software for NT.

Assuming you have already done this, I think BSquare ( sells some software to make NT see USB Devices. I have not tried the software so I cannot speak to its effectiveness.

I hope this helps.

Many manufacturers of USB devices

created special drivers for their devices on NT.

Try their websites.

An alternative solution

If all you need to do is get data onto a USB drive, you might want to try a Linux live CD to access the data and transfer it.

But still check the manufactures website first, Most USB drives I have got have had 98 and NT 4 drivers on a CD with the drive (My Ipod being the only exception).
