  • OT, help with USB 2.0

    the desktop and the laptop both have USB 2.0 capacity, but always give this damn message: This device can perform faster if connected to a USB 2.0 (...), and a check of the device manager shows there is "enhanced" crap there. How does one get to enhance a USB port? Can they be assigned? How on earth do you know what port is in what physical location?

    gvasale, perhaps they are connected to an older USB 1.1 hub? My wife's computer has an old hub on it - she gets that error when she hooks her camera in for uploading or when she hooks her printer to it.

    What are you connecting these devices to?

        The desktop is an older, but not ancient Hp, P4 3.0 ghz PCI buss, with 4gigs or ram installed. The lapptop is a Toshiba Tecra with Intel Centrino vpro, again loaded with 3+ gigs of ram, one of the last of its type with xp pro as standard, not a downgrade from Vista, bough less than 1 year ago. Addtionally, the desktop as a compac 4 slot USB 2.0 card installed. So on it there are supposed to be 6 hi speed usb ports. At one time, the usb ports worked well with a Sandisk high speed card reader. I have had to do 3 reinstalls of xp pro, the last one with a full delete before install. Xp pro, bought from micro#[email protected]&. I have wasted lots of time with this lately.
