The Register bericht dat er een timing bug is gevonden in de USB driver van Windows 98 SE, die gaat over z'n kop in systemen met een AMD processor op 350MHz of sneller in combinatie met een VIA USB controller:
People with AMD microprocessors running at clock speeds over 350MHz and who use Windows 98 Second Edition need a workaround if they're using USB devices.
The Microsoft support site, which has a specific page on the problem here, is offering a downloadable file which it claims will solve the problem. According to the site, people with PCs that use a Via USB controller and an AMD processor clocking at 350MHz or faster, could have problems making their USB peripherals works.
The glitch is caused by a timing specific problem in the USB driver, according to Microsoft.
