    What happens when you try? Take a look in Disk Management, and assign an unused drive letter.

    Might try the device on another pc, the device may have failed. Also look for it in Device Management

    Ok, sounds like the hardware may have failed and it's time for a new one. If it's 98 era, then it's likely very small any way.
