What are my best solutions?
Is there anyway to make this drive work? Should I be looking for another drive? Someone mentioned an internal drive with an enclosure but I don't know anything about putting that together. Any ideas? Thanks!

The problem with Windows 98 and 98SE is that, unlike XP and Vista, there are no generic drivers included for "mass storage" devices, which is what an external hard drive is, and it's these generic drivers that the drive manufacturers rely on, and consequently they don't spend the time or money on writing their own proprietary drivers because these days they are not required, or at least not required in sufficient numbers to make it worth their while. It's a hard fact, they all support the mainstream, and that isn't Windows 98 any more.
