Please note: Windows 95, Windows ME, Windows 98 (first edition) do not support USB drive capabilities.
Workaround solution 1: Go to the Flash drive manufacturer's website and download the Windows 98 driver from the site. Below are some common manufacturers of flash drives.
Workaround solution 2: If you cannot install the drivers on your home computer, you can save your homework files to a floppy disk. When on campus, come to the Center for Technology and Professional Development (in the library) or the Library Resource Desk and transfer the files from your floppy disk to your flash drive. You will then have access to your files on campus computers.
