I have a Lenova R51e with two USB ports that are supposed to be 2.0. I have a USB 2.0 memory card reader. If I connect it to either port, I get a message that says 'the device can work faster if you connect it to a USB 2.0 port'.
The Device manager and PC-Doctor for Windows that came installed seem to think everything is ok, and the ports do work (albeit at 1.1 speed). I have a PCMCIA USB 2.0 card, and if I install it and connect the memory card reader to it I don't get the message.

Re: USB ports work at 1.1; s/b 2.0
Your computer is functioning correctly.
The USB ports on your laptop are USB1 ports its pard of the hardware.
Your PCMCIA USB 2 card runs at USB 2 speed and therefore when you connect a USB 2 device to this port you will not get this USB message.

Re: USB ports work at 1.1; s/b 2.0
Your USB ports on your computer are plug and play. If you have issues with your USB port, it is port related, driver related or device related. The following solutions will help you identify the problem to resolve your USB port issues.
To Identify a Working USB Port
Begin troubleshooting your USB ports by checking Device Manager to see if your USB ports or hubs are working properly.
Click the Start button. ClickControl Panel.
ClickSystem and Maintenance.
Double-clickUniversal Serial Bus controllersand check to see if all your USB ports, hubs and controllers are functioning correctly. Any devices not functioning will have a yellow exclamation mark in front of them.
If Device Manager shows any USB ports, hubs or controllers are not functioning, check for updated drivers.
To Update the USB Port Driver
An out-of-date BIOS driver can create issues with your system recognizing the USB port.

You know there is an easier and better way of transferring picture files and that's by using a memory card reader. A memory card reader plugs into the USB port of a computer and the camera memory card is inserted into the reader slot. The computer then looks at this as an external Hard Drive. Both methods will need you to format the memory card after the images have been downloaded to the computer. Formatting the memory card in the camera in which it is to be used will clean the card and making it compatible with the camera both the camera and memory card can then communicate without errors.
Yes, you can still retrieve deleted pictures by using a software. But first you will need a card reader, Insert the memory card in the card reader and connect the usb of the card reader in your computer's usb port. But before inserting on your computer's usb port download a software for recovering deleted pictures. You can try downloading these software:
1. Pandora Recovery
2. SoftPerfect File Recovery
3. PC Inspector Smart Recovery
You just have to choose on what software you are going to use.
1. If you have a usb cable to your reader connect it to 1 of usb ports on your PC. 2. Go "My computer or "computer " if Windows 7 then right click on the icon that show your SD memory ( it will show as another drive letter). You will then see a drop down menu with the word "format" click and follow the prompts. This should format your memory.
Your reader/writer is set up for use on 2 USB ports (hence the 9 pin connector), one port for the reader and one for the externak USB port. This has nothing to do with the port version. The long and short of it is you need a card with a matching internal header. NEVER break off a pin! Some of these headers have reversed connectons so you probably broke of one of the data pins and runed that header's ability. Typically the readers like you have come with several cables, so that they can match the headers you have available. Older motherboards and add on USB cards did not use standardized header configurations aas you seem to have found out. Your best bet at this point is contact the manufacturer of the reader and find out what brand of add on USB cards they recommend and go with that. AND AGAIN NEVER REMOVE ANY PINS FROM A HEADER !!!
Are you using a card reader? If yes, you need to isolate the problem. Please follow the steps below:
1. Try connecting your memory card reader into different USB port of the computer. 2. Try using different card reader to see if there's a problem with the card or with the reader. 3. Connect it into different computer. 4. Remove and reinsert the MicroSD in the card reader and make sure that the card is properly seated. 5. If the card reader and the computer are working but still unable to detect the MicroSD, try to reformat the card. 6. If same problem persist, return it to the store and have it replaced.
