Is the activity light on the pen drive on during the delay? Something is probably writing to the drive, causing the delay. A faster pen drive should have less delay.

ResourceMeter can show you how much (and how fast) data is being written to the drive.

Use a process viewer to determine what program is most active during the delay. If it is a virus scanner, disable scanning on that drive letter.

You may also be able to enable (or disable) caching of removable drives to improve performance:
->Control Panel->System->Performance->File System->Removable Disk

Can this be a solution for this issue here?

* Unofficial Windows 98/98 SP1/98 SE/ME SETUPAPI.DLL 5.1.2600.2180 Update [442 KB]:
http://www.mdgx.com/files/SETUPAPI.EXE

This patch breaks NUSB 2.4 and 3.0. With updated file, when I clicked on the NUSB icon in the system tray, it did not respond. When I restored the original setupapi.dll everything worked fine.

Check which vwesion of SETUPAPI.DLL you have on the machine. If it turns out to be 5.1.2600.2180, follow the links PROBLEMCHYLD provided some posts above, to solve the issue. If that's not the case, then update NUSB to version 3.5, using the link below to get it.
