USB MEMORY STICKS???
« on: August 16, 2005, 04:43:52 AM »
Looking at purchasing a USB memory stick.. but after checking out whats on offer I'm not sure which is best.

I'm gonna get a 1GB but  there's a few options of which type of stick to buy?

and I currently run windows 98 on an old system which i can only assume has  usb port 1.1 how can i tell if it is this?

    If you're running an old system then check to make sure it has got usb ports.

      Just becuase the stick says USB 2.0, it will adjust for a slower port... Make sure that (1) You have a USB port  and (2) Your memory stick is compatible with Windows 98 ... Also, may I ask why you need 1 gig? Will you be transferring large files?
