Copy and Paste them? Or there is another problem that we don't know to answer this question hard?

98 probably can't see your external drive. You can remove the 98 drive and attach it as a slave drive to the computer with the external drive. Then transfer the pics as you would any other files.

Or if the 98 computer has a cd burner you can copy them to a cd. Or you could even use floppy disks if the other PC has a floppy drive.

Real men don't use AntiVirus; they just reformat

Does it get detected at all?
Normally it should get detected and then as it is windows 98 it may ask for a driver.

Windows 98 generally does not have built in drivers for USB devices and therefore you need to install the drivers for your device. However, it still has to be detected first and for you to be prompted for the driver hence my question.

You can read more about USB support on Win98 here:

When everything else fails, read the instructions.

98 is an old Window version. You can install your external hdd's drivers first. And be sure what version usb supports your computer and what the external hdd needs.
An other way, if you have two computer and they are in same LAN. You can plug the external hdd to pc which works with correct and give share option to Win98 folders to take them on LAN to external hdd.
