How to upgrade to hi-speed USB ports?

I receive this message: “Your USB Mass Storage Device can perform faster if it is plugged into a hi-speed port. There are no HI-SPEED USB host controllers installed on this computer.”
I have an ASUS P4P800 SE motherboard, and my OS is Vista Ultimate 32 bit. How can I upgrade my motherboard's USB ports to high speed ports please?
I understand from the link that brought me to this page that you are offering a free service. That's much appreciated. Thank you.

    Thank you both for your help. Today is Sunday and I'll check out our local computer shops when they reopen after the weekend.

    Are you saying there are no downloads for my motherboard that would give me USB 2 ports? I had thought it would have been possible to download a HI-SPEED USB host controller or driver to achieve this, but am not good at finding these.

You can upgrade the USB on your computer by buying a interface card from a local computer store; they are also available for purchase online. They are relatively cheap and are easy to install; the "PCI card" just pops in to your mainboard and you are good to go. Windows Vista won't have much trouble detecting whatever brand of card you buy.

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.

USB Port can preform faster error message


This is because you are plugging in a USB 2 device to a standard USB port, or a USB 3 device into a USB 2 port. The computer is just telling you that if you upgrade the hardware, the device will work faster. Its more of an information message than an error. Your device should still function fine.

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.

USB's slow and external drive


For the USB ports, you may want to verify that the drivers for the "enhanced USB" are up to date and for USB 2.0 or 1.1. USB 2.0 ports are generally backwards compatible for 1.1 devices. The "enhanced" does indicate USB 2.0 controller. 30mins to backup 3GB to your external drive is a VERY long time. USB 2.0 transfers data up to 480mbps, but if you get an error message indicating that the device can perform faster on a 2.0 port, you maybe transferring data at 12mbps which is USB 1.1 speed

To speed up the transferring of data, identify which USB contoller in Device Manager is the USB port you're having a problem with, and delete it from Device Manager. Then, plug in your external drive into a USB port its never used before.

As for the naming of hard drives, Hitachi partners with several drive manufacturers including Dell and IBM.

Dear sir, I am having Transcend 2 GB pendrive but when I insert it in my computer, it gives message THIS DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF U CONNNECT IT TO HIGH SPEED USB 2.0 PORT and its speed is also ver


If you have a USB port on the back of computer plug it in there. Or use USB extension if it is uneasy for you to plug your pen drive from time to time. From there you can hook up your pen drive much easy.

Location of USB Root Hub


Hi dottyo,

Generally the front USB ports on a computer are USB version 1.1, good for USB keyboard and mouse or printer.

But, almost always the USB ports on the back of the pc are USB version 2.0 which is what you are looking for. Try any ports on the back of the pc case.

Hope that helps!

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

"A HI SPEED USB device plugged into a non HI SPEED USB hub" error message, any idea? every time i plug a usb in to my computer it comes up that this device can perfom faster on a hi-speed usb port


This is not an error it just means that you are plugging in a usb 2.0 device into a usb 1.0 port. The devise will still function normally just not as fast. You could always add a usb 2.0 pci card to your computer.

OK to begin your computer doesnt have 2.0 usb, its just windows is telling you about the device attached, I am not sure about upgrading it, but I doubt it is possible. Now from the error you posted, your computer did detect something. Are all the neccesarry drivers installed? If so I would take a look at your bios and set your PCI/Perriphrial to auto, sometimes that will resolve any port assignments which are somewhat commen in laptops, being as they use a hub
