Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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.

I also have an external USB DVD drive. It now performs so slow that it cannot even play a video at normal speed, only in fits and starts. I did not have this problem before. I checked my device manager. It displays the following: There are no HI-SPEED USB host controllers installed on this

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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: HI-SPEED USB DEVICE

Here is a link to your manual

On pg 31 of your manual what are the BIOS settings displaying?

On pg 33 you want to make sure the SIS USB is enabled and that the USB 2.0 supprt is enabled.

If you have the CD that was included with your motherboard, there is a 2.0 driver that needs to be installed as well.

SOURCE: How to upgrade to hi-speed USB ports?

Yes, are help is free; just don't forget to vote...

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.

SOURCE: WHENEVER I CONNECT A USB DRIVE TO MY COMPUTER IT

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.

All USB devices give 'can perform faster' message on one PC


If your WD hard drive is external usb, check to make sure it is not usb3.0. Are you using a PCI-based usb card or are the ports built into motherboard? The first thing I always do on any pc is look at the properties of each usb port in device manager and uncheck the box under power management that allows the computer to turn port off to save power. If you are using a pci based card then I would go to the manufacturers site and see if there are driver updates for XP first. If that does not work remove the pci card from device manager and reboot the pc, when windows sees the new hardware do not let windows install the drivers, go to windows update and let it scan for and install latest drivers. hope it helps

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.

This usb device can perform faster if you connect it to a hi speed usb 2.0 port. I have an hp pivilion dv 6000, and according to the specs, I have usb 2.0, but I get this message every time I plug my flash...


This is just an error message. Yes, your HP Pavillion has USB 2.0, but there's a possibility that your USB flash drive has USB 1.1 specs.

If the flash drive has USB 1.1 specs, you would still get the same message. Again, this is just a message because USB 2.0 is backwards compatible with USB 1.1.

Have a great day!

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.
