I'm looking to get high speed USB 2.0 functionality.
When i plug in my flash drive, i get this message:

The Generic USB Hub is a HI-SPEED USB device and will function at reduced speed when plugged into a non-HI-SPEED port.

HI-SPEED USB Device Plugged into non-HI-SPEED USB Hub. A HI-SPEED USB device is plugged into a non-HI-SPEED USB hub.

I've downloaded service pack two, but it still comes up with that message.

Can anyone help me?

(1) Is the usb device you are using usb 2?

(2) Is the usb port you tried usb 2?

Hi

It's a hardware limitation; not something that can be patched with a download I'm afraid - you'll need to get either a PCI card (example here - click here ) if you have a desktop computer or a PC Card (PCMCIA) for a laptop ( click here )

This isn't necessary if you only use the drive occasionally - but if you use it a lot, the speed difference becomes worth it!

All the best

Possibly plug the device into other USB ports?

Update USB drivers.

Purchase a USB PCI card with high speed ports.

if you use an external usb hub, it may not be usb 2

I think i might try updating USB drivers but i have idea where to look!

and you can check if there is any upgrade in Abit web site.

Thanks for that last link. I looked in device manager today and found a yellow question mark next to USB device controller. I chose update driver, and windows did so!
Now i have USB 2.0.

Cheers everybody again....
