I have an older computer Compaq Pressario with Windows 98 SE. I need a driver for a flash drive so i could install it on the old computer, so I can take stuff off the computer and put it on a flash drive

Check the flash drive manufacturer's website to see if they have a Win98SE driver to download.

OfficeMax carries flash drives by Toshiba, which are compatible with Win98SE. You have to download a driver, and info for doing that is on the card that comes with the flash drive.

I've been using mine with no problems. :thumbsup:
