How to install hi-speed usb to T21

How do I install a Hi-Speed USB device to an IBM T21?

    I have a IBM ThinkPad T20 2647-44U
    Everything works, but when I plug-in a wireless USB wi-fi device, a warning shows that it would work faster in a FAST USB 2.0



    I am looking for a FAST USB 2.0 driver, if such thing is available.
    The <307.ibm.com> website has everything else but hi-speed usb driver.

    Any ideas?

You don't have the hardware, when you do, xp will install the driver automatically. You can get a PCMCIA card with usb 2.0 and plug it in the slot in the side, around $15 should do it and it is over 20 times faster than 1.1

Hi there. When talking about USB 3.0. Can say say that there is a USB 3.0 hard drive? Or can I say that if I have an external USB 3.0 hard drive case and place a hard drive in it it would have the USB


USB 3 has the fastest data transfer speed through a computer with USB 3 port. If your computer does not support USB 3 then it cannot transfer data at USB 3 speeds.
If you install a hard drive into an USB 3 hard drive adapter case and the data transfer speed would depend how fast a hard drive you install in this USB 3 adapter case.
A SATA hard drive is faster than an IDE/PATA hard drive. Make sure you get the correct USB hard drive adapter case with the SATA or IDE/PATA connector that matches the hard drive.

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!

USB Port speed is not stable


The speed at which data is transferred via USB 2.0 all comes down to what the read/write speed of the device you are sending the data to/from is.
 
USB 2.0 sends data at 480mbps but you will need a storage device that can read/write at 480mbps to get that speed.
If your device can only read/write at lets say 200mbps than that’s the transfer speed that will be used.
 
The read/write speed of memory sticks and external hard drives very a lot and this is what will be causing your speed differences.
 
Hope this helps,

Portege 3490CT problem with external CD-RW backpack


This is nothing to be concerned about it the message is just informing you that you are plugging a USB 2.0 device into a USB 1.0 port, which means that it will still work but will run at a slower rate than it would if you had a USB 2.0 port

If you want to turn off this error message follow the instructions here

I hope this helps

How do i have a usb port run a high speed device


The USB port in your computer is not the new high-speed USB 2.0 version, and when you plug a USB 2.0 device in you will get that message. Most USB devices will still work but not give best performance. Just close the message window.

The network cable unplugged message can be disabled through the network settings. Normally Windows is set to display that message when there is no network cable connected. You can just ignore the message.

My usb port is not 2 - I keep getting a message that states that I need to get a hi speed usb device host controller. Where can I get this? I have an ibm thinkpad r40.


On some laptops that are older (an IBM R40 is a bit older) there are no high speed usb ports but if you plug in a usb device that is USB 2.0 into a usb port that is not high speed, the operating system (Sounds like Windows XP) will display that message even though you don't have a high speed usb controller. The USB device will still work but at a slower speed. You can ignore this message without a problem
