I recently received an Iomega CD-RW 52x24x52x / DVD-ROM 16x USB 2.0 External Drive from a friend. When I plugged it into the USB port, I received the following error message:
The following error occurred: 'The file was not found' (error #2)
Setup could not finish opening a file on the source disk.
Source file: 'C\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\PRECOPY\Ufd.sys'
Destination file: 'C\WINDOOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\Ufd.sys=sp1.cab'
I have read in previous posts on other forums that unfortunately this error seems to be a common problem with Win98SE USB ports, as they still have the older 1.1 version, as opposed to the modern 2.0 version on new OS.
I went to the Iomega site and downloaded a 14.3 MB file that was recommended for all Win98 users to do before they filed a support request. The name of this file was USB and FireWire (1394) Update Module : English.
After downloading the update module and restarting my computer, still nothing at all. By nothing, I mean that when I plug the Iomega external drive into the USB port, it does not recognize it at all. The port is working however, as I also have a SanDisk Cruzer 512 MB thumb drive that works just fine via the same USB port, so there is not any problem with the port malfunctioning, other than this infernal mysterious 'Ufd.sys' file, which I cannot find anywhere as a separate download.
I do not want to download exuberant's 2.1a cumulative patch. All I would like to have is the separate Ufd.sys file.
If anyone could possibly upload that to this forum somewhere, or point me to another external link, I would be most appreciative, as this Iomega external drive is very nice and I would like to actually use it sometime soon.
Thanks very much for any help that someone in this forum could provide.
