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.

Don't laugh, cuz this is way out of date, but I am using an IWILL XP333 motherboard and am wanting to keep using it for now. It does not come with USB 2.0 but I want to upgrade to that. I was told by...


No laughing ... I am not familiar with this board. If it is the board in the pic, I see it has PCI slots. If you have PCI slots,I know there is such a thing as a USB-2 PCI board because I have several I use to upgrade boards as old or older than yours. The trick is to find the proper PCI board. Be aware there are PCI 1 and 2. I dont know what operating system you are using, you dont say. A question you will have to find the answer to is will the OS run USB-2?

My advice is you go to a small computer repair place in your city and see if they can help you find a board to solve this dilemma. Expect to pay up to $45.00 US for this board.

You wanna laff ... I have several Windows 98 Second Edition computers running on my network ... wanna nother laff, I still use my Amiga with a Motorola 68000 processor that runs at 6 mHz. It was advertised as one that has "Blistering Speed". The Amiga has a "bridge board" that runs a 286 chip with Windows 3.11. Now you can laff.

Thanks for your interest in FixYa.com and good luck with your search.

Adding a PCI ethernet card?


One port on the router is an "Ethernet" port -- look closely to see the 8 wires in the socket.

You'll need a similar 8-wire connector on your computer,
and an "Ethernet-cable" that has 8 strands of wire.

Adding-in the PCI Ethernet card will add an 8-wire connector,
so that the Ethernet-cable can be connected.

Be sure to buy a 'PCI' Ethernet adapter, not 'PCI-E', and not 'ISA'.
It may come with a CD-ROM containing software to be installed.

Don't pay more than $20. Or, find a "computer-geek" -- he/she probably will have one or more "spare" PCI Ethernet cards to give to you.

G'Day! I have a Transcend 2 GB USB stick. Whenever I connect it to my computer or any other computer, I get this error message ''THIS USB DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF YOU CONNNECT IT TO HIGH SPEED USB 2.0...


Yes. The problem is you don't have usb 2.0 ports on your motherboard. Its the second generation usb port. So if you want to upgrade you can buy additional hardware to upgrade this. But your motherboard has to be compatible with that additional peripheral too. As an example buses of your motherboard. So you have to check that also when you purchase. This is not a problem. The only thing is it will reduce the efficiency of your pen drive (Access time etc.). Other usb sticks you have may be usb 1.1 devices.

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

UPGRADING USB 1.1 TO USB 2


I searched and found a 1/2 height PCI card with 2 USB ports, plus a internal connector for two more ports. My little NetVista will not hold a full-height PCI card. Get out your tin snips.
Works like a charm !
FYI: I disabled the BIOS USB support for the old ports, and plugged the old MB cable into the new PCI card. I now have two 2.0 ports on the front, and two 2.0 ports on the back. However, I lost the ability to boot from USB

I purchase a FreeAgent Go 160gb,getting started it does not do anything. the diolog window does not come up,unit just beeps...


Hi,
If this is an External USB Hard-Drive, your problem is insufficient power provided by the USB Port.
1:- Try Another USB Port If You Have One.
2:- If you have a 2 into 1 USB Cable, connect 2 into 2 individual USB Ports ( On Computer ) And 1 into Hard-drive Unit.
If none of this works, your drive is faulty.

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
