Hi, I have an 8 port mains powered USB hub and when I conect a memory stick directly I get a message saying that the USB device is a High Speed device and will function at reduced speed when plugged a non Hi-Speed port.The Hub (8 ports)and the USB card (4 ports) have free ports that can support the Hi Speed USB device, all 12 show as being unused ports. How can I check to see that I am actually running all other USB devices at Hi Speed? I looked at other posted messages and used Belarc Advisor. My MoBo is listed as Abit AS8/AS8-V (Intel i865-ICH5)1.0 Any ideas Many thanks
Yes mine says that and I know the hub is USB2 capable as it is a new hub recently purchased when I thought that the old hub I was using might have been the problem, but it would appear to only work as USB1 - I just can't seem to figure out what the problem is!
If like one of my computer and running 98se the motherboard USBs are running as 1.1 although they are USB2 this is as a result of the chipset being a SIS. In XP they run at USB2 this computer is dual booted. On the 98se I fitted a Card with USB2 Ports and a Via Chipset this enables them to run at USB2 after loading Via Drivers, So I have both USB1.1 and USB2 in Windows 98se
It is Belkin 7 port mains powered hub and the pci card is a 4 port drawing 500mA. Both are listed as enhanced. I have just tried plugging the USB stick into the elkin hub and lo and behold I get the message, but no message using the 4 onboard USB slots or the 4 PCI card slots. The hub is not that old either, and it is plugged into the MoBo USB slot. I think I will just have to keep unplugging my iPod, camera and phone cables then, or splash out on a USB 2.0 Hub. Many thanks guys
