Good question. If Windows Millennium detects a USB flash drive by default, the maximum size is 32 GB. However, because Windows 98 and Me, lack LBA 48-bit support, the maximum size will be as much as 128 GB.
The USB flash drives will still work, but it's unfortunate that vendors no longer test USB devices on Windows 98 and Me.

It may apply to very old External Hard Drive Enclosures not rated for more than 128GB, but this is a limitation of the enclosure, not the OS.
Windows 9x can support up to 2TiB External USB Hard Drives. When Flash Drives get bigger, I am sure they will work also.
I have patches that push the limit even further to 384TiB.

I bought another brand, which, when I bought it, I didn't realize it requires some password protection or activation. Needless to say it didn't work on Windows ME. Newfangled junk.
I guess I'll just stock up on these Tech Universe ones. The 2gb ones work great. And there's another 4gb model they make that look's like a key for a key chain. It works as well, though the package doesn't say it.
