HI-SPEED USB HOST CONTROLLER NEEDED!

I just purchased the Alera Technologies DVD-R Quad Cruiser. When I plug it into the USB port on the front of the computer, a window pops up with this message: There are no HI-SPEED USB host controllers installed on this computer. The USB Mass Storage Device will function at a reduced speed. Where can I get the hi-speed controller I need to make it function at 4x speed? Further, I noticed an insert in the blank DVDs I bought... There are "firmware" upgrades to several brands of internal and external drives available at this portal: # Unfortunately, Alera Technologies is not one of them. Is "firmware" just a different name for a driver? Is a "controller" the same as a driver? Do I need this upgrade for XP, or is it an upgrade for the DVD software? This is all very confusing! Any help you could provide would be GREATLY appreciated! I don't know much about this DVD burner thing... Thanks, Big Al I have this problem please help

Your computer has USB 1 ports and the message is telling you for optimum performance the more modern USB 2 ports would be better.. it is down to what you have I'm afraid

Firmware is the managment programs etc that are written to the chips in your device these special chips can be written to to improve the programs eched into them any firmware update if you can get it is better for your device

Neither firmware or controller are the same as a driver.. a driver is the peice of software code that enables communication between your device and your computer

The firmware upgrade if available is for your device not your computer or windows version

Overheating spark plugs


Any general overheating problem with plugs and electrical devices might relate to a short circuit. Please check all cables and esp. the plug to ensure no short circuit happens. If it continues and if the problem is not identifiable, take it to a technician, using it might result in component damage. Get it fixed as early as possible

Memory upgrade


I like all the information you gave. However the information you are looking for is in the manufactures web site. goto search engine and enter your computers manufactures name followed by the word "support" find the site and then look up the details for your computer. The reason I say this is because each slot can only control a certain amount of memory. The manufacture will tell you what each slot can control and also the type of memory supported by your motherboard. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT> never mix memory. Make sure of speed and capacity. If you mix diffrent speed and capacities the results could end in total failure.
