purchased a usb 2 memory stick, but when I plug it in I get the message (hi-speed usb device plugged into non hi speed hub) the retailer I purchased my pc from insists that I have usb 2 on my pc, ie must be faulty mem stick, but works ok on friends pc, can anyone please help, thanks

...It looks like your retailer is pulling a fast one, (no pun intended) It appears your PC has USB 1.1 rather that 2.0 i'm afraid.

Agree with Jakey boy, that's what it looks like.

Go to Device Manager and check the USB entries. If one says Enhanced you have USB2. If not then you have 1.1

If you are using windows x\p, then you must have sp1 installed. If you do not then your usb 2.0 ports on the computer will only register as usb 1.1

many, many, thanks you guys, went in device manager,
one entry says "via usb 2.0 Enhanced host controller" so what am I doing wrong?

are you plugging it direct into the computer or via a usb hub? if you are using a hub this could be usb1 as I found out.

plugged into all usb ports & get same message
"hi-speed usb device plugged into non hi speed hub" it only works at reduced speed, thanks for your help.

Can you try it in someone else's computer? at least this will find out if its your comp or the memory stick at fault
