Usually it's best to consult manufacturer's info on your computer. If not available, you can check it by going to start menu>settings>control panel>system>device manager and then look for "universal serial bus controllers" - several devices should be visible here and if you have USB2 it will be clearly stated (e.g. something along the lines of "USB2 Enhanced Host Controller").
Generally I would say if your computer is less than 4-5 years old, it will probably have USB2.
Hope this helps,
Raf

Set-up won't recognize that the USB cable is connected to both printer and computer and therefore printer won't work. What's up with that??


1. Confirm the USB port on the computer you are connecting your printer to is being recognized by your computer. The easiest way to do this would be to plug a known good USB Memory stick into the USB port you want to use. If you can read the contents of the USB Memory stick then the port should work. Remove the Memory stick, start the printer installation program (Make sure you don't the printer connected), want until the setup program tells you to connect the printer before you attach the Printer's USB cable.
If the printer isn't recognized try a different USB port, when picking a new USB port to try select a higher priority port, for example in increasing priority from, an external USB hub, a powered external hub, a monitor based hub, USB ports on the front of the computer, up to the USB ports at the computer rear. For USB ports on the same circuit select an USB 2.0 before an USB 3.0 port

My netgear wireless-n150 USB adapter wna1100 can't detect adapter.


First determine that the USB port isn't dead. Do other things work in that USB port? If the answer is yes we know it's not the port. Have you tried another USP port? If it doesn't work in another port (or on another computer's USB port) then it's the adapter itself.

Adapters can go bad. USB ports usually work and don't go out. The exception is that many laptops that come with several USB ports sometimes have one (or more) that never did work.

Try it on another computer. This is one last step to determine if the adapter itself is dead and that it isn't something on/with your computer.

It also could be that the computer has the old USB 1 port and the adapter needs USB 2. (USB 1 was slower).

My computer tells me that if my wireless adaptor was plugged into a different USB root hub it would work faster. How is this done?


Try plugging the wireless adapter into one of the usb slots on the back of the computer. If it still shows that message, I wouldn't worry. The difference in speed is negligible at best. hope this helps

When uploading pictures from my cameras SD card the computer suggests using a hi-speed USB port. I have tried the other ports and it tells me the same thing. Which port is the High speed? Dell Dimension...


you have no high speed ports installed on your computer. what you have is USB 1.0. you can however purchase a high speed USB pci card (usb 2.0) and install it in your computer to get faster transfer speeds.

I just got a new dell. i've hooked my old hp


1. Try to connect this printer to your PC by ETHERNET cable as opposed to USB 2.0 and see if it speeds up.

2. If it speeds up we know it isn't necessarily the printer giving the problem

3. Now we start to look at the cable. Use a brand new cable to attach it to the PC. If it persists it may very well be the USB port on the Printer itself.

4. To test the port, attach it to another PC and if it speeds up as u expect, then it is not the USB port on the Printer

5. Now it's time to check the Printer Software on the new Dell and fiddle with it a bit accordingly.

Solution
If it is that u cannot get it to speed up by USB and it works well by Ethernet, just use Ethernet to connect it and call it a day

USB taking too long to transfer vista


Note that USB ports (in your computer) and USB devices can either be "USB 1" or "USB 2" speeds.

While "USB 2" to "USB 2" connections are up to 480 Mbits/second,
any "USB 1" to "USB 2", or "USB 1" to "USB 1", connections,
will max-out at only 11 Mbits/second.

So, check that you have a "USB 2" device.
then check that you are connecting to a "USB 2" port on your computer.

Give more details about your computer, and your USB device.

External HD not recognizing USB ports as being Hi-speed ports


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.

Sometimes the ports on the rear and on the front are different speeds (older mother boards). Try connecting it to the rear port if you are using the front or vice versa.

hi bigmax,
this could be many things.
The reason i suspect is from port speeds.
Most HP computers have different speeds for their ports.
Try putting the USB into a different USB port
This should work.
Also make sure you install any CD's that came with the player.
