1 - Is USB enabled in the BIOS?

2 - What chipset is on the motherboard? Everest should tell you this.

I have 98SE installed on this computer. I had my Palm installed and
working on the other computer that I just transferred everything from. I
don't have the paperwork for the camera anymore, but I did have it
installed
and working on a computer other than these two that I have mentioned and
that computer also had 98SE.
I used the installation disk for both items and installed evrything
before
I rebooted and connected the devices to the USB ports, but no new hardware
wizard appeared. What should I do at this point? Thanks. Keith.

I took a look in my BIOS and I couldn't find anywheres where it even
mentioned USB. Maybe I didn't look in the right place. Could you tell me
exactly where I should look and if I find it and it's not enabled how I
would enable it.
You also asked me what chipset is on my motherboard.
I have a Asus P5A motherboard with a chipset:
ALi M1541 ALaddin5.
I hope this can help. Thanks Keith.

Thanks for reposting the chipset model. I saw it in one of your early posts
after my post re-requesting the make and model number.

Download and install the ALi M1541 IDE BusMaster (for P5A, P5A-B, P5A-VM)
aliide34.zip Version v3.40 drivers from Asus.

You'll probably have to reboot.

The USB Enable/Disable option in the BIOS should like something like this:

The USB was disabled in the BIOS. I enabled it and downloaded the
BusMaster. When I was installing it a window popped up with the question:

DOS CD-ROM and IDE Drivers may conflict with PCI BusMaster Driver in
Windows. Please remove your CDROM or IDE Driver from config.sys or
autoexec.bat. Do you still wish to install the driver?

Should I click on the yes button or should I do as it says and remove the
items in config.sys or autoexec.bat , with your instructions on how to do
so? Thanks. Keith.

First check to see if the USB devices such as your Palm Pilot and camera
work. If they work, then there's no need to install the BusMaster driver.

My USB devices do not work. I tried plugging them in while the computer
was up and running and no new hardware window popped up. I unplugged them
and shut down my computer and then plugged them in and still no new hardware
window popped up.
When I first enabled my USB in BIOS and the computer started to reboot it
asked me to put my 98SE CD in which I did and it tried to look for a file on
the CD but couldn't find it, that's why I figured I needed to install
BusMaster. I don't recall what file it was, maybe a driver? Thanks. Keith

Go ahead and install the Busmaster drivers. I am not certain, but I'd be
surprised if they caused conflicts with the IDE drivers.

How often do you run the CD-ROM in DOS? Probably never, like me.

One other thing - Download and run USB Ready from PC World. It will check
to see if your USB ports are working.

I'm not having much luck. I installed the BusMaster and then checked to
see if it was working with the USB Ready program as you suggested but the
test results came back as follows:
SYSTEM SOFTWARE SUPPORT
Microsoft Windows 98 with Full USB support
Recommendation- No System Software Upgrade Required.

SYSTEM HARDWARE SUPPORT
Recommendation- No System Hardware Upgrade Required.

USB DRIVER SUPPORT
USB Driver Connection Is Not Operating Correctly.

I'm not sure, do you think I did something wrong when I installed BusMaster?
I went into the folder were I dowloaded it and found my way to the win9x
folder and then found a file that read setupand used that for the
installation. There is another file that has an icon that asks me what I
want to open it with and the file is: _inst32i.ex_
In theWin9x folder there is another folder called Win9x and inside that
there is three other files: Alihdd, idevsd.vxd, and M5229.mpd. I don't
know if any of this helps but I'm just tring to give you as much info as
possible between post.

I also went out and got a USB card from a friend and tried to install that
one. Windows picked it up as new hardware but when I tried to install the
driver from the 98SE CD it does the same as for the BusMaster. It cannot
find the file on the disk. I tried searching the CD for the driver, but not
being sure what I'm looking for I didn't see anything that would help me.
Any more suggestions? Keith
