Well, first, be sure that you can get the driver for W98SE; some come
with the driver, some don't have a driver at all, and some have a driver
but you have to download it from the web site.

USB 1.1 will work but it will be really slow. If the amount of data is
large, you could be looking at a lot of time. Transferring a gigabyte
at USB 1.1 speeds could take quite a few hours. A network transfer
using a crossover cable would be a lot faster.

I don't think that the brand of drive matters, as long as you have the
W98SE drivers for it.

Why don't you just use a USB hard drive or a USB flash drive? Since you
are using Windows 98SE, you will need drivers to see the USB device, but
most of these things do have the drivers available. Alternatively, for
the one-time purpose of data recovery only, you can network the laptop
and the desktop together with nothing more than a crossover cable.



Hmmm. Good idea. Thanks. Would you recommend a Lexar or Swivel flash
drive (that's what's at the store by my house). The old PIII laptop
has USB 1.1 and Win98SE. Both manufacturers says the drives work with
98 and USB 1.1 (they are USB 2.0 drives).

Your news software is top-posting...

I don't have a network card in the laptop to hook a crossover cable to
- unless you can do that with a parallel or serial port. The laptop
has USB and Wi-Fi. I could get a PCMCIA card that adds a USB 2.0
port... or a network card I'd never use again.

Buy a used PC Card network adapter for $5 on E-Bay.

Oh, good. Another bottom-post fascist/fanatic bites the dust!
