    I'd appreciate if someone can please advise.

    I just purchased a Dell system, and need to transfer data from my Compaq Presario to the new system.

    I downloaded a Windows '98 Memorykeydriver into My Download Files, so that my system should recognize my newly purchased Dell USB Memory Key.

    I then inserted the Dell mem-key, whereupon, the new hardware wiz displayed, & I proceeded as follows:

    Add New Hardware Wizard

    This wiz searches for new drivers for:
    Unknown Device

    Next

    Search for best drivers...

    Next

    Specify Location:
    C:\My Download Files\Memorykeydriver

    Next

    Windows was unable to locate a driver for this device

    If you do not want to install a driver now, click Next
    To search again, click Back
    (I clicked Cancel)


    What should I do now?

    Try changing this line

    Specify Location:
    C:\My Download Files\Memorykeydriver

    to this

    Specify Location:
    C:\My Download Files\

    NiteHawk, that's what I had done originally, & it gave the same message, whereupon I added Memorykeydriver to the pathname.

    BTW, the file listing of Memorykeydriver reads exactly as below (i.e. I don't see any .exe listed in there). Shouldn't there be some sort of .exe file?

    LEXARUSB.SYS
    LEXARPD.PDR
    LexarUSB.inf
    Eula.txt
