I attempted to use my USB memory stick (Lexar jumpdrive) with my Win98 laptop (the stick works fine on my XP desktop machine). When first inserted it autodetected new hardware but as I didn't have the drivers I went for Generic, figuring I could change it later.
When this didn't work I removed the generic drivers from device manager and got the correct drivers from the Lexar website. However my computer will not run autplay, detect with Add New hardware (as plug& play) or appear in device manager when connected.
I have manually installed the device via Add New Hardware and installed the driver but it still doesn't appear anywhere on the machine. If I try putting someone elses USB stick in it recognises it fine (though it also requests drivers to work).
Does Win98 really only give you one shot at making an installation (I read about this here http://www.dataq.com...chinfo/usb.htm) ? It seems that just because I got it wrong first time I've had it! Any idea how I can make my computer forget that I tried to install it previously (btw you cannot see it anywhere in device manager).
Thanks in advice for any help,
