I have a flash/jump drive that I got for Christmas that is 256MB. I was able to use it on my computer that runs Windows XP just fine, but when I plugged it into my parents computer that is running Windows 98 it did not work. What it said was that it found the flash drive (add new hardware popped up), but then could not find the driver for it. Is there something that I am doing wrong, or is the computer too old to run the flash drive/jump drive? Thanks for any help.

You will likely need to install drivers to run it on 98, either they are on the maufacturer's site or on a software CD for the drive

I got it to work by looking up the manufacture's website and finding the driver off of there. Thanks for the help.
