Thanks!

Try this link:

http://www.rundisk.co.kr/korean/download/download.php?downfile=98Driver-usb2.zip

It's a zip file containing the drivers for a RAmos Rundisk USB 128Mb Flash Drive. I think this is what you are looking for.

Since you need USB 2.00 Drivers for Windows 2000 here is the link.

http://www-1.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?rs=0&uid=psg1MIGR-46449&loc=en_US

From the Link Click on 64256mkey.exe and accept the Terms and conditions.

Also Available is the TXT Help File for Download. This Should and will work.


Good Luck

Sorry abt the Previous Comment ... It was WIndows 98 and not Windows 2000. The Link is for Windows 98 Drivers Only.

Sorry

XSINUX,

Just curious but why are you recommending drivers for an IBM USB drive?  I did a search for Rundisk and was only able to come up with USB drives made by RAmos, a Korean company. Will the IBM drivers work?

Thx...

wparrott,

               Mate the IBM Drivers are compatible. More over are you sure the Driver that you suggested would support USB 2.00 ? I am just curious.

Thanks.

I just used the information provided by veryfew1 to locate the manufacturer. Granted, I could be wrong, but I was unable to locate another USB flash drive with Rundisk in the name. Good to know in the future that the IBM drivers are compatible. I've got a few flash drives and I've only had luck with the manu.'s drivers (esp. the 'generic' type flash drives). I'm always mis-placing the driver CD's...


Since I don't have the same flash drive, I can't verify that they are for USB 2.0. The website I found them on does mention that they are USB 2.0 drivers.

Thx
