Question about Dell Precision Workstation 670 PC Desktop
When i plug a usb device such as an external hard drive or a card reader into any of the 8 usb ports i get a mesage saying i should use a usb 2.0 port for faster data transfers. To my knowledge they all are 2.0 or at least the ones on the front of the tower, right? I have tried activating from bios as suggested but i cant find the option in there. any help would be appreciated.
Do a firmware update.

Sounds not, some of the older systems only have 1.1, Usb 2 is not all that old (about 2-3 years).
you can upgrade to USB2 bu adding a USB2 PCI card to your system, this would give you some ports on the back and it may be possible to link the ports on the front to the new PCI card to upgrade those as well (depending on how they are connected to the mobo)
you can get USB2 cards with a Pin header which would allow for a pin block connection.
