windows 98 demands a lot of drivers

by Snuffy09 In reply to external hd problem

make sure the drivers for your USB ports are installed for your motherboard.

Windows 98 may require drivers for you External HD to see it.

you usb interface may be outdated (1.0) but should still work, just a little slower than 2.0.

Hope it all works out
