Ive got a Sandisk micro cruzer USB 2.0 drive and I tried to run it on Windows 98. It said I had to get the drivers so I downloaded the drivers from the official website. I followed the instructions and put my USB in... and nothing happened.

I then went to device manager and it said that "the device is not present, not working or does not have all the drivers installed (Code 10)"

I reinstalled it and it still didn't work.

I tried it on my XP and the drive worked, so its not the drive

Anyone have any suggestions?

I'm figuring since the the computer is running Windows 98, that it is very old and most likely only has USB 1.1 ports on it and not 2.0 which is what you would need to run the Sandisk Micro Cruizer USB 2.0 flash drive. That is also why it works in your XP machine just fine because that machine is newer and has USB 2.0 ports on it.

You can buy a USB 2.0 PCI card. They cost about $20 or so plus shipping. Also, even though I'm sure youd do, make sure you have Windows 98SE installed and not just normal Windows 98 or else the USB 2.0 PCI card will not work.
