Charging An iPod On 98se --- USB Software Issue

  1. Hi everyone, I know this sounds stupid, but I has a USB "Issue" and its traced to 98se, so I thought it would be good to post here.


    Above is a link to the apple boards where I first posted this problem. "everythingdaniel" is me.

    Problem is, the computer wont let me charge my iPod.

    It runs 98se and it doesn't charge when plugged in.

    If I run a live disk of Ubuntu, it charges.
    So the above tells me that it is not a bios problem, or a hardware problem

    It is a 98se problem.

    So the question is, what does XP and Ubuntu have with USB support that 98se does NOT have? Is their a fix for this?

    Other then the iPod not charging, the USB works perfectly, flash drives and keyboards have no problems....

    Thanks For Any Help!

    Thanks for the reply, I read, downloaded, installed, restarted. And no obvious change has happened. Anything else to try?

    Thanks Again,

    Motherboard USB driver update ?
    You will need to go to your motherboards manufacture support page for any driver updates
