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.

WHENEVER I CONNECT A USB DRIVE TO MY COMPUTER IT IS SHOWING THAT THIS DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF YOU CONNECT IT TO A HIGH SPEED PORT


Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today. That is not a problem. Different USB ports have different capabilities as do the various USB devices. You are merely being alerted to the fact that the device could work better in a faster port.

If you have the manual for the motherboard you should be able to identify which port is which. You could also accomplish the same thing by trying the various USB ports.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today.

How to upgrade to USB 2.0


hi this could be that the usb ports on your system are only usb v1 and not usb v2, if you require your items to run on usb v2 you will need to get a usb v2 pci card the things will work still just at a reduced rate of speed there will be no drivers for your usb ports to upgrade them as it is hardware related and not software related, usb v2 cards are generally cheep to buy and easy to install and set up....hope this helped

This divise can perform faster if u can connect it to a high-speed usb devise! And what is a usb2 devise


USB = Universal Serial Bus and when it first entered the market the maximum speed was 1,5Mbit/s (this was called USB 1.0).
After a while they upgraded to usb 1.1 (12Mbit/s) and then to USB 2.0 (480Mbit/s). This is where we are now. Your computer is able to handle USB2.0, however if you have an old printer or something else, which was designed when the standard was USB 1.0, the maximum speed for that device is 1,5Mbit/s.
If you plug a newer device into a "slow" usb port (for example your usb port =1.0 and device supports usb 2.0) , then you will get information saying : "this device can perform faster...."

expect usb3.0 soon with 4,8Gbit/s

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

Usb 2.0


Hi,
this is a common error with operating systems and devices.
If you go into my Computer/system/device manager. And remove the installed USB devices. shutdown the computer, and reboot it. then try putting your USB device in.
What general happens, is that if you have had an older device in the USB port at any time, the port configures itself to this setting. options are to try another port on the computer ( some older ports only support usb1.1 )
ensure you have up to date drivers on the connecting device and on the connecting computer.
Hope this helps Mike @ Compurepair.

USB2 high speed not recognize


Try opening up the device manager and unistall everything in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Then reboot and let windows reinstall the USB controllers. Windows should now be able to recognize properly USB2 devices.

USB 2.0 doesn't work on K8MM-V with XP PRO SP2???


bc3486e.gif

hey!

ok now the K8MM-V has several 'chipsets' yours has 8 usbs? yes?

then you have the:

 

VIA VT8237R Chipset...
- Integrated Faster Ethernet LPC
- Integrated Hardware Sound Blaster/Direct Sound AC97 audio
- Ultra DMA 66/100/133 master mode PCI EIDE controller
- ACPI
- Supports 2 Serial ATA ports
- Supports 8 USB2.0 ports

ok? now:

download a new BIOS! this means read the readme.txt please!

http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=driverfile&dno=2383&i=1

<<this is the xp(64bit driver set>> (incase you are missing the 2.0 or yours is corrupt)

 

http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=bios&maincat_no=1&prod_no=173

this is your BIOS (as i said please follow ALL instructions cause its inportant)

 

good luck!

 

after BIOS flash and driver updated go into the control panel > admin. settings > computer managment > device manager then look at the USB section and update the drivers!!

 

rerstart and volla!

 

good luck!

USB2 high speed not recognize


It sounds like your Windows XP might be missing the USB2 drivers. Try going here http://www.windowsmarketplace.com/ and download the driver needed and see if that fixes your issue.
