    Try using it with a USB device that is pre 2000 ;)

    And you haven't seen shitty until you've tried Windows ME

    Yep. I tried to install a USB wifi adapter on a Win98 machine yesterday. Of course it blue screened. I wanted to kick it and yell "Can't you fucking do anything right without blue screening and/or locking up?!?!?!"

    Having said that, I tried to switch to HD mode for the company's HP318 camera in W2K. GPF baby! Everytime as soon as I plugged it in it would shit. Later on I reinstalled the whole computer, no problems. :dunno:
