    Question USB driver for DOS ?

    Hi

    I just bought Kingston Data Traveller 2.0 and I wonder whether I could use that in DOS. I have already tried here


    But still I couldn't, I contact Kingston, but they still don't reply.

    Anyone could help me?

    Did you even read the link you posted? DOS is not made to support USB drivers, and it'll probably be a long time before it does. Forget it. You need a Win98+ or Linux environment to do so.

    yeah dude, I can't believe you're trying to fool around with DOS as your actual environment...you'll never get anything done. Just download bochs and you can emulate DOS all you want from within windows, linux, or whatever.
