Here are the problems: My TransNote and 600X (as well as two Tecra 750s) are all running Win98 SE with the factory image. None of them recognize any USB stick (MSDOS or Fat32 format). They claim not to have the right driver. I put in my Win98 install disk and still can't find the right USB drivers nor can the system.
Hardware profile insists the USB controller & driver is working fine on all the computers. The TransNote will recognize that a USB stick has been inserted but not the companion IBM USB CD-ROM drive.
I tried a PCMCIA flash card and a CF -> PCMCIA adapter and while recognized, they do not show up as a drive. To make matters even more frustrating, the files I need to transfer consistently fail via infrared. With such basic methods failing, I don't even want to attempt a LAN network yet.
Having used Macs for so long, am I forgetting something about Windows? My stranded data and I appreciate any suggestions.

Looks like someone has modified the Win2000 USB stack for Win98se. Might be something to try.
Edit: Found the USB Mass Storage Device Driver is used to use: http://www.technical-assistance.co.uk/kb/usbmsd98.php
I am going to see if a Mac or Linux format will change the way 98SE sees the drive it won't mount. The only remaining oddity is that the TransNote still will not recognize (or power) the USB CD drive. It powers up with my ThinkPad X220 and the drive is new, so I am sill puzzled by that. Any thoughts?
I am embarrassed to say, the drive seems to be stuck. As a new-in-box drive, its been fine but now the spindle is so stiff it won't rotate on its own. It looks like its cross over Ethernet time.
I would like to thank you again for your help with the USB drivers. I sent via infrared (an essential tool) the drivers to my Tecras and not only liberated some important data, but also made those computers usable again. Thank you!
