    Hi there,
    Helping a friend who has a Mac with OS 8.5 on it, no internet connection. She would like to use a flash drive with this but there are no drivers. I have burnt them onto a cd, but it will not read as it is telling me there is no disk copy available.
    I am repair PC's but only know enough about a Mac to get me by. Can someone guide me through this please. It is a Kingston Flash drive that she bought and it states for Mac 10.5, can I upgrade the USB drivers only? How?
    Please keep in mind that she is 72 years old and you gotta love her spirit as she has only worked with a Mac and will not switch.

    I dont think any type of USB mass storage device will work with OS 8.5, but I might be wrong.

    I found drivers for 8.6 here, but haven't found anything for 8.5 yet.
