It won't work on Windows 98 - - you need Windows XP or later.

There are "generic" USB drivers available below (they are specific to Win98FE and Win98SE---see "Downloads" near the bottom of the page), but depending on several factors including the size of the drive and how it's formatted, they may be totally useless:

If it's not a USB issue, it's a formatting issue. Win9x uses FAT32 & cannot read NTFS. If your external drive was formatted using NTFS & you want to use it with your Win98 system, you will have to reformat it as FAT32. Or you could partition it so that there's a FAT32 partition + a NTFS partition. Posting the make/model of the drive would be helpful.
