USB 2.0 device


I recently connected my iPhone to my home PC but recieved a message saying that I needed to install a USB 2.0 control device. However my PC should already have this, it is a Dell Dimension 2400. Is there anyway I can restore / re-instate this ?

Re: USB 2.0 device

All you have to do is Windows update! Sorry, everybody has to update their version of Windows. If you want windows to let you know when there are important updates I can show you how to set this up. Open control panel, open the icon System. Click Automatic Updates tab. You will see you have choices. Pick one. Click Apply & than OK. After your computer is all updated try your iphone again. I'm sure it will be fine. Good day!

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.

741gx-m elitegroup motherboard, message''usg device not recognized

This is a USB problem. The pc is telling you that your device will work better if you connect it to a USB 2 port.

Make sure that you have your USB 2 drivers installed. They usually come on the setup disc that you have with your motherboard. If not, use free 'cpuz' program (google it) to determine your motherboard type/serial no, then search for 'usb 2 driver for 'insert your board serial' mobo.

ASUS P4SDX USB Ports not recognized as USB2 HS Ports

The message comes up when a USB 2 device is connected to a slower USB 1 or 1.1 port. It is only to advise you that the devise will operate faster on a USB 2 port. If your computer has only USB 1 or 1.1 ports, you will always see the message. You can buy and install a card with USB 2 ports and install it. It will come with the USB 2 drivers. Install the card and the drivers and then connect your USB 2 device to the new hardware and you should not see the message anymore.

Good luck, And let me know ho it works out for you.

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

Here is a link to your manual

On pg 31 of your manual what are the BIOS settings displaying?

On pg 33 you want to make sure the SIS USB is enabled and that the USB 2.0 supprt is enabled.

If you have the CD that was included with your motherboard, there is a 2.0 driver that needs to be installed as well.

Usb 2.0

this is a common error with operating systems and devices.
If you go into my Computer/system/device manager. And remove the installed USB devices. shutdown the computer, and reboot it. then try putting your USB device in.
What general happens, is that if you have had an older device in the USB port at any time, the port configures itself to this setting. options are to try another port on the computer ( some older ports only support usb1.1 )
ensure you have up to date drivers on the connecting device and on the connecting computer.
Hope this helps Mike @ Compurepair.

USB2 high speed not recognize

Try opening up the device manager and unistall everything in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Then reboot and let windows reinstall the USB controllers. Windows should now be able to recognize properly USB2 devices.

USB2 high speed not recognize

It sounds like your Windows XP might be missing the USB2 drivers. Try going here and download the driver needed and see if that fixes your issue.
