    I am guessing that you want the stuff on the drive? if not why not just delete the partition and reformat the drive with FAT32, if you do need the stuff you can try this program

    Oh, and NTFS is most definately NOT backwards compatible. It is the default format if you set this up on 2K or XP, and Windows 98 cannot read it. But if you format it on 98, then 2K and XP can read it no problem.

    another question is which version of 98? I am assuming you are using a usb drive. It has to be 2nd edition to use usb

    I think you are thinking of windows 95 which the first version didnt have usb then they came out with Win95C with USB support, 98 has always supported usb.
