Motorola USBs land Windows OS logos
USB drivers in two of Motorola's SURFboard cable modems earned Microsoft's Designed for Windows logo, the company's broadband communications sector says.
The logo validates the SB4100 and SB4101 cable modems' compatibility with Microsoft Windows' operating systems, Motorola says, including Windows 98, Windows 2000, Windows Me and Windows XP.
The USB driver, Motorola's v2.0 line, provides digital signatures to help cut customer problems from installation of outdated drivers; system-file protection to preventing replacements of certain monitored system files; and Window updates to let customers get updated drivers, service releases and other components from the Internet.
Motorola says its cable modems are at more than 2,000 retail stores nationally, and that retail versions will carry the logos to let customers know of the Windows compatibility.
