I have installed an mp3 player and Device Manager says it is working, but when I go to my computer there is no Removable disk. I also have a usb storage device which used to come up as a Removable disk,but it doesn`t show up either.

Try installing the usb 2.0 patch, do a google for win98 usb 2.0 patch, that
may help you. I think it is named ali???. You may try reinstalling mother
board drivers as this will update your usb. But with 98 Ive had to use the
patch in the past. A software solution to the usb 2.0 issue.

Thanks for your help Manic. I found the patch ali echi?? for usb 2.0 but after checking in Device Manager,and clicking on usb,then properties,this comes up "SiS 7001 PCI to USB open host controller" should I still download "ali patch" or search for "SiS patch"?

PS. novice PC owner
PPS. storage device was coming up as Removable Disk in my computer previously but not anymore.
thanks toto7d
ali patch, ive used it with various chipsets, if it doesnt work remove it
from add/remove. It has worked for me numerous times in the past,
especially with installing usb printers.
