How to enable USB drives in both Windows 98SE AND MS-DOS 7.1

Postby tezza on Wed Feb 07, 2018 8:07 am

Hi Guys,

I’ve recently given USB drive capability to the MS-DOS 7.1 environment in a Windows 98SE computer I use for disk imaging. It was a little tricky configuring the machine to ensure both the MS-DOS drivers and the Windows 98SE drivers co-existed peacefully. That being the case I thought I’d document what I did. Hopefully the article will be useful to others who might want to do this.

Perhaps slightly off topic, but on Win95 and Win98 (and probably Win98SE), I've always found the 'Toasty Tech' drivers work great. This has saved a lot of headaches for me on various machines over the years, it's simple and it works. You can find the info here
