USB downloads

by kappa07 / July 27, 2009 3:33 PM PDT

Since a while, when I connect a USB stick, appears a window with the following message : This device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed 2.0 port and I end up at the crawling speed of a USB 1.0.
Any idea ?

I can't offer much. When I see that I reboot and use the desktop's rear USB ports. Sorry but there is a lot of discussions about this so I'll give you what's worked for me.

Let's cover those front ports.

As the machine ages the noise increases in the power supply levels, capacitors lose there... capacity and the front ports tend to do that.

Also, check the BIOS for USB keyboard+mouse support and try all 4 combinations.

NO, I will not know what changed. We have far too much spyware, malware and aging components to deal with. If a cause is being sought then you must know it is rarely found. Fixes include the BIOS change and installing the motherboard drivers again.

I'd supply a link to such a driver but details remain slim in this discussion.

Is this a desktop or a laptop? How old is the computer?
