    i have a question and i do not know where to post so here i go anyway.
    i have intel pentium 2 350 processor
    224 mb ram
    i am trying to get mobile phone tools to work (i know there is a forum for this) but the program says it does not support usb in windows 98.
    is there a program or a driver i could download to get it to work with windows 98 because i have plugged in my digital camera and my wife uses the usb for her palm pilot so i know the usb works..it just doesn't work with this phone program...is there any way around this so i dont have to go out and buy a new operating system?

    i checked the website and there is no driver for windows 98.
    i am using windows 98 ver. 4.10.1998
    only windows 98se and up are recommended for the program, which i do not understand, i mean if i can use the usb ports for other devices, why can't i use it for this program?

    because you have windows 98 first edition not second edition. see if can get a upgrade disk to second edition
