USB@ Drivers under XP SP2

By nzvirgo ·
Pen Drive and exturnal DVD Burner, Windows reports that these devices can run faster on a 2.0 Hub Controller. It is claimed however that Win2k and XP SP1 have this support built in, an update through VIA for the KX600Pro Mainboard didnt help.

Any further ideas ?
Cheers :-)

You may need to enable USB2 in your BIOS.

Good luck

The claim is correct what you are being told is that your USB connections are only rated to USB 1 and not USB 2 which is twice as fast.

This could be on the M'Board in which case you either have a USB 1 M'Board and you'll have to add a USB 2 PCI Card to get the faster transfer speeds or you could have a USB 1 Hub which is slowing things down. If the latter is the case replace the Hub with a powered one as it will give you fewer problems.

you may need to update the BIOS *and* the drivers for usb for your motherboard. it is not clear from your post if you did both.
