After doing a websearch, on google. I found this website. http://www.imation-southasia.com/sup...ash_drive.html
Under FAQ's here is the specific instructions that helped me solve problem:
Q. My computer cannot detect the Flash drive. What should I do?
• Try refreshing the screen by pressing F5. If that still doesn’t work, make sure that your USB port has been enabled in your BIOS
setting. You can check your BIOS
settings usually by pressing the DEL or F1 key during the boot-up screen.
• If the problem persist, go to Control Panel -> System -> Device Manager . Look for any “Unknown” device and remove them. Unplug the Flash drive from the USB port. Restart your computer again before re-plugging the Flash drive onto the USB port again. Proceed with the usual device driver installation when Windows 98SE reported a new hardware is detected when the Flash drive is plugged into. Follow the Windows 98 setup instructions.
• If you are using Windows 98 / 98SE, make sure that you have installed the drivers for Flash drive correctly. Please note that the drivers need to be installed after the USB port has been enabled.
I had not enabled USB support, so I corrected that first. I opened, imation download file for enabling USB support for win98. I rebooted my computer, plugged my imation flash drive but no response yet. I opened my computer, and clicked on update driver. At one point it ask where I wanted to update driver from. I clicked on search microsoft web site. After that installation proceeded on its own. I am at intermediate level, so I don't know exactly how all this worked. You might say I used the cookbook approach or by rote?
I was not taking notes as I performed these steps so I may have left out a few. If nothing else, I hope the web link helps someone. Frank
