Device will work faster on USB 2.0 pop-up message occurs when USB Device is plugged in
Hi to all.
Whenever I plug in any USB device, I get a pop-up stating that this device will work faster if installed USB 2.0. I am using Windows XP Professional SP2. When I check in the device manager, under Universal serial Bus controllers, I see only two options i.e. Intel 82371AB/EB PCI to USB Universal Host controller and the second entry is USB Root Hub. In Bios settings, the USB option is set to High speed. When I try to use the USB Device like a flash drive. it accesses it very slowly. Please help me in this matter and let me know if I need to install any patch.

Re: Device will work faster on USB 2.0 pop-up message...
That means that the USB drive that you have on your computer is either on the USB 1.1 driver and you have to update it or your computers USB is not capable of USB 2.0 speed. First thing you need to do is find out the model number and brand of your motherboard. Then go to the manufacturers website then look at the manual for the board to find out if you have USB 1.1 or USB 2.0. If you have USB 2.0 then download the latest drivers for your board. If you only have USB 1.1 then your only options is to buy a USB 2.0 to PCI card that will give you USB 2.0 or just stay with the USB 1.1

USB versions are USB ver 1.1 and USB 2.0 and USB 2.0 has faster transfer rate. When you're receiving this kind of message, that means you're using a USB device that is compatible with USB 2.0. This happens when you plugged in a USB 2.0 device to a USB 1.1 port on your computer. It simply notifies you that the USB device can perform faster when you have an available USB 2.0 port. I'm not really sure what kind of computer you have and what version of windows you have but you can actually check if you have USB 2.0 by going to Device Manager, click on Universal Serial Bus Controllers and look for "USB2 Enhanced Host Controller" if you don't have this, that means your computer has no USB 2.0 port. Hope this helps.
In most cases this message is fairly true and accurate. Whatever it is that you plugged in is most likely broken. Two things you can try to test this:
1. Plug it into another USB port in your computer, if it is the same message, move to step 2. If it works, then there may be something wrong with that USB port on the computer.
2. Try the device on another computer. If you get the same message, the device is probably broken. If it works, then most likely there is something wrong with the USB ports on your computer.
Let me know if you need more assistance.
1. Check if your device is on.
2. Check the cable connection. See if it's plugged properly.
3. Change the USB port, in order to make sure it's not malfunctioning.
4. Try to connect the device to another computer.
5. If it works, try restarting your computer.
6. If it doesn't solve the problem, an no error message appears check your computer's USB and Windows.
Looks like your Net connection device is conflicting with your laptop's sound device. Sometimes this is solved by plugging the Net connection device to a different USB port, or getting your laptop's sound driver software updated.
Merry Christmas!!! Greetings for the festive seasons! It seems like you are connecting a USB device to our computer. USB is a PNP bus. whenever you connect anything to USB, some handshaking is done by the OS with your USB device, so as to recognise its class (if it is a storage device or printer etc,) and other details like its manufacturer, capacity etc. If, for any reasons, this handshaking is not done, this error is raised. to solve this problem, try following things 1. change cord and try again. 2. If it is a USB hard disk, try twin USB cable. where single USB end is connected to the USB hard disk, and twin USB side (both the pins) are connected to the. PC. It happens, when device is consuming more power, so some additional power is needed to drive it. 3. If it is a mobile, printer or camera, install drivers first and then connect the device. 4. If you are connecting it to front USB ports and the wiring inside is made incorrct. This nmay cause damage to any device you connect to that port. if any other product is working on that port, then simply rule out this probability 5.Try different port, as the device you are using may be using higher version (USB 2.0 or USB 3.0). but this is rare case, as PC itself will prompt you by "This device can work faster" 6. Device itself is faulty. try connecting, similar device to your PC and confirm. If it is not solved, give brief description of what are you connecting to your PC and what have you tried before.
Are you sure the Dolphin Digital Photo Frame is compatible with Windows Vista? When I searched, all I saw that was supported was XP and 2000. Once drivers are installed and they do not work, it's best to uninstall the driver (in the control panel in the system hardware configurations). Delete the driver and restart the computer with the picture fram plugged into the USB. You should be asked if you want to install the drivers. You then pick the custom location for drivers and browse to your drive with CD. You should be able to find the drivers somewhere within the disk (usually contained in it respective OS Folder e.g. WINXP). Load that particular driver.
