High Speed USB issues

I am running an Intel 865BGF board with USB 2.0, and high speed is Properly enabled in the Bios. Yet, every time I connect my Flash drive --a 1-Gig Sony MicroVault, I get the message that "it would run faster if it was plugged in to a High Speed USB port".

According to the device manager the proper controller is there and active, and as best as I can determine Intel says that the board has high speed USB ports, but still the message. Am I missing something?
Running Win Xp Pro, P4 with 1Gig RAM and ample drive capacity.
P.S. the Flash Drive works, Windows just displays the speed message.

Thanks in advance

Try different ports

In reply to: High Speed USB issues

Sometimes ports on the front of a computer aren't wired to the USB 2.0 controller. Also, it seems sometimes USB ports "go bad". Some of mine will say that no matter what, even though I know each and every one of them should be USB 2.0 since I built this system from scratch, and did all the wiring.

So be sure to keep printers and other things that don't really need a lot of bandwidth on those ports, and you may want to consider a USB hub if you seem to have a number of ports dying on you.

XP Pro doesn't do USB 2.0

In reply to: High Speed USB issues

Until SP1 and even then I encounter issues until SP2.

Also most machines have the incorrect wiring to the front ports. The final nail in this USB 2.0 coffin is that the USB motherboard drivers are often overlooked by home installers.

Tell me that you
a) installed SP2.
b) Have the proper USB 2.0 wiring or use the rear ports.
c) Installed the motherboard chipset package.

I am with you

In reply to: XP Pro doesn't do USB 2.0

All the things you indicated have been done--The Win XP I am using includes SP2, Inf chipset files have been updated and I have tried all USB ports on two computers--the 865GBF we are discussing, and a Toshiba laptop with Xp pro SP2.

Then it's a warranty issue.

At least the ports aren't dead yet.

USB 2.0..searching for 2.0

In reply to: High Speed USB issues

I have only had this problem on my "cheapo" DELL B110/1100 second PC will recognize my SANDISK cruzer MINI 256MB..
Its the my opinion..even sometimes the B110/1100 series will NOT offer a better USB connection..but yes it states a search for a 2.0 connection..????
I have also found a physically bad connection useing my SANDISK cruzer MINI..
So as PC connection could be one or the other..
..Maybe a optional Connector Connection for the a cable with an FEMALE input..don't really know..
Its not really a serious problem.
