    I have the same problem. I saw the solution from jmassengill, but I don't agree that R40 has USB 1.1. The specs tell it has 2.0. So, the problem is still unresolved.

On some laptops that are older (an IBM R40 is a bit older) there are no high speed usb ports but if you plug in a usb device that is USB 2.0 into a usb port that is not high speed, the operating system (Sounds like Windows XP) will display that message even though you don't have a high speed usb controller. The USB device will still work but at a slower speed. You can ignore this message without a problem

Recently, when I insert a USB flash drive into my laptop's USB port, I get the message: This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a HI-SPEED USB 2.0 port.


Your laptop has USB1 port and the USB 2 message will appear if you plug an USB 2 device into this USB port.
You maybe able to upgrade the USB port to USB 2 if there is a BIOS upgrade available from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site.
If not you maybe able to get an USB 2 PCMCIA card to install into the PCMCAI slot on your laptop.

Hi,

I keep getting message saying my pc will run faster with 2.0 hi-speed host. how do i get it


Hi! Welcome to FixYa!

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.

I keep getting the statement: "Hi-speed USB Device attached to Non-Hi-Speed Hub


This is purely because you have a USB 2 device on a USB 1 port. Open the device manager and expnad the list for Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Right click on any one of the host controllers and select Properties. Select the tab called Advanced and place a tick in "Don't tell me about USB errors".

ASUS P4SDX USB Ports not recognized as USB2 HS Ports


The message comes up when a USB 2 device is connected to a slower USB 1 or 1.1 port. It is only to advise you that the devise will operate faster on a USB 2 port. If your computer has only USB 1 or 1.1 ports, you will always see the message. You can buy and install a card with USB 2 ports and install it. It will come with the USB 2 drivers. Install the card and the drivers and then connect your USB 2 device to the new hardware and you should not see the message anymore.

Good luck, And let me know ho it works out for you.

The system comments that this is not a usb 2 device


first thing is that message just means that your device will work at a reduced speed
second is that a high speed port or enhanced usb port is required to work it at enhanced speeds
to check if your usb port is enhanced goto : control panel / system properties / hardware tab / device mannager / then scroll down to usb controllers and see if it says enhanced next to your usb port if it does then you will need to get the updated usb driver for the enhanced speed

HI-SPEED USB HOST CONTROLLER NEEDED!


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
