How can I get a driver for usb drives for Windows 98? I don't have a modem on that machine and am trying to download a driver to a Windows 7, 64 bit machine. I would then copy it to a cd and transfer it to the Windows 98 machine. Anything I can find wants to install the driver on the 64 bit machine and tells me it's incompatible with the driver.

Hello

Win 98 drivers ! Wow! That's 15 years ago and in computer evolution time it's like trying to find artefacs in an ancient Maya pyramid. I looked in our attic, we have an old machine with Win 98, it only has ps2 ports no usb.

Have you tried Googling for them ?

Yes. This one has 2 usb ports, by the way. I can't find a way to get the driver(s) without it trying to install them on the machine that's connected to web.
Thanks for your replay.

I would think that it's possible to download 32 but driver files on a win7 64 machine,

Just in case I come across them, what is the make and model of your ancient and museum worthy machine ?

Regards

P.S. Have you ever tried to sell it to an antiques shop ?:-)

If I can ever get the data off this thing, I just may put it up for auction.
