Usb Mass Storage Device

i recentally baught a hard drive enclosure that converts an internal IDE HD to an external USB 2.0 drive.

it is pretty much plug and play and it acts like any normal external HD
except with windows 98

it wont accept it
do i need drivers
or what do i need to get this to work on windows 98 SE
the drive is fat 32
it recognizes the drive as a usb mass storage device
but it has no drivers for it

and i cant find mass storage device drivers for win 98

Who makes the box? if you can find this out you may be able to get the drivers from their website. For instance i have an old ide controler and windows xp sees it as a mass storage device with no access the the drives attached to it untill i install a driver for the card.
well i just took the thing apart and not a single company name is on it

i guess what im trying to ask for
are the drivers i need something microsoft would give to support usb mass storage devices or is it something i have to find for the actual enclosure box itsself?
You need to find them for the specific enclosure afaik. My friends one came with a cd for win 98 and the like, as did another friends. Ive never needed to use them as most people run WinME or above now, making it plug and play pretty much on all pc's

look at the controler chip on it maby you can get a driver for the chip, if you can take a pick of the controler and post it here and i may be able to help you find a driver.

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
