I have just bought a SanDisk Cruzer Micro 4GB Flash Drive. Blurb on front of package says "access on any PC" - small print on back (not seen initially) gives system requirements as "Windows 2000, XP, Linux.
I have 3 computers, 2 on XP, 1 on 98SE(not linked). I need to transfer data from the XP machines to the 98SE machine but that machine does not recognise the USB drive and I have had no luck trying to download apparently suitable drivers. The 98SE machine is used to drive an engraving machine and it would cost many hundreds of dollars to convert this setup to XP - far more than the Flash Drive!
Vendor will not take it back as packaging was opened (impossible to try it without doing so!).
Help would be appreciated.

Have you looked on the web site to see if Windows 98 drivers are available?

Next, Windows 98 will run a CD burner just fine. Have you thought of that idea?

Next, Have you thought of removing the hard disk from the Windows 98 system and installing it temporarily into the XP system to transfer your files?. The XP system will need to have built-in connections for PATA drives, the type that uses the 40-pin ribbon cable connector. Some newer systems support SATA and PATA and some support only SATA.

Depending on your particular XP systems, yours may support only PATA, which would be a good thing in your case.
