    We are trying to install a USB card reader on our computer. The system we use is 98. The computer is telling us that we do not have a VMM32VXD(ntkern vxd). How do I get the USB card reader to work without this driver.

    Please email me back at: [email protected]

    With USB devices you have to ensure 2 things.

    1. Ensure that USB support is enabled in the BIOS.
    2. Install the drivers from the CD supplied BEFORE you physically install the card in the computer (assuming you are installing a PCI card).
    3. Boot up and after Windows completes the "Found New Hardware, Installing drivers" bit connect the USB device to the card.

    If you are just connecting a device to the USB port, then do so after installing the drivers.
