xp pro, sp2,all updates, gigabyte 8e series MB

mb comes with 8 usb 2/1 connectors, 4 on board and 4 front connected by wire. every thing as been working corectly. or so i thought, until i connected my xmas toy a usb 2 phone. it comes back telling me it's usb 2 and would perform better in a usb 2 connection. i thought they where. i have checked the bios and usb 2 is enabled. any ideas why it's not working at usb 2.

thanks in advance for any help

Did you plug it into the front or back?

When you go into device manager under system in control panel does the USB say enhanced, if it doesn't that means its USB 1 and you need to install the driver.

USB controllers list
enhanced host 265c
(properties indicate enabled and working fine)

If the phone has a driver I wonder if there is an updated driver that may solve this. Perhaps the computers ok but its the phone thats the problem. Is there a website for the phone manufacturers where you may get help or an updated driver.

Although the computer is noticing it's USB 2. Try updating the drivers again? Make sure the phone drivers are installed I guess [I know I just said about Totally-Braindead although it seems the only answer?]

Right click on enhanced host 265c and select Update Drivers (when connected to the internet).
