Question about SimpleTech Signature Mini 160GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive - Dark Blue Blueberry
All USB ports on my PC have been proven to be hi-speed ports via use with other USB mass storage devices. No matter which port I plug my SimpleTech Signature Mini 160GB External USB 2.0 Hard Drive into, I continually get pop-up notice indicating that it is a Hi-Speed USB device attached to non-hi-speed hub and that it will function at reduced speed when plugged into a non-hi-speed port, so I need to disconnect from current port and then connect to another port. (1) Why am I getting pop-up? (2) Is device really functioning at reduced speed? (3) Is there a solution?
I have the same issue. I have 4 Simpletech Signature 250GB drives. They all worked fine at first. After about six months two of them started connecting at USB 1 speeds. It occurs on 4 different computers!!! The post about it being the computer assumes is wrong. How can it work fine for six months and then suddenly change. Also it occurs on different computers. I have submitted a tech support request with simpletech and will post the results.

Simpletech has confirmed this is a problem. They replaced two of my drives under warranty. The replacement drives work fine and connect at usb 2 speeds.
