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
