I hope someone can help me? I have windows 98se and I have new software ( Kodak Easyshare )
everytime I try to install it which now I stopped trying.
My computer get a VFAT Error and system halts.

Then I have to do allot of stuff to get me out of this mess and reinstall stuff and get rid of the software.

Does anyone know why this Error comes up? Is there something missing from my computer that I need. Why with this software does it do this. My other digital camera software didn't do this to me. This digital camera software is a gift and does it everytime.

I already went to Microsoft and did a ton of things from their site and that elimiated all those solutions. I am lost now.

VFAT error making me bummed. :tazz:

This will rebuild rather than restore the registry and also replace missing or corrupt system files

Boot the PC and keep tapping F8 right after the beep until you get options, select command prompt only, type scanreg.exe /fix then press enter, it will run through a few screens then say registry repaired. Press enter then press ctrl + alt + delete keys together to reboot.

When Windows has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD then reboot.

When it has loaded to the desktop, click start, programmes accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then run disc defragmenter from system tools

Use add remove to uninstall unwanted programmes

Get the trial of Tune Up 2006 here

Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up disc clean up then registry clean up then click optimize to run reg defrag, which needs a reboot

Those will have cleared the drive of obsolete software errors

These are suggestions for making the most of the free trial

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection (without an internet connection if applicable) from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

(Skip this if you do not connect to the internet with this PC) After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

Kodak Easyshare has to be the worse piece of software i've ever seen.
We use it on a few computers at work and it always seems to slow the PC down to a crawl or doesn't install correctly.

Apparently the Kodak software doesn't get on with Norton
