usb 2.0 pci card

  Nessie 23:38 24 Feb 2004

Have bought a 4 port usb pci card. I have xp pro and when I switched on the pc after installing the card xp took over and installed drivers. I tried a usb device and it worked but I do not know if it is 1.1 or 2.0 speed. The device manager has via usb enhanced host controller. I then went and installed drivers off the floppy provided and all went well and the drivers were installed. I looked the device manager it has via usb 2.0 enhanced controller. When these drivers are in stalled no usb devices work. If I uninstall them they work fine again. At no time are there any yellow exlamation marks. I presume that if I leave it as it is so it works I will get 1.1 performance. Any ideas from you experts would be great. Thanks

If the native XP Pro drivers work, forget about the VIA driver. When Device Manager says usb ENHANCED, it is already usb2. So it's fine.

If the external device is usb2 (or to be precise, usb high speed, just to add to the confsion), it will be operating at the higher speed.

If the device is usb1, then normally you will get an "error" message (it's not an error at all) that you're using usb1 device. You can turn off that message in Device Manager, USB enhanced host controller, properties, one of the tabs, and untick the box for warn me about usb errors or something like that. Click OK.

You could try searching for a newer driver on the manufacturers site.

Whenever i try to use my usb2 device on my usb1 port i recieve a message to tell me that the device will not work to its full potential.

This may be specific to the device or a message generally recieved.
