I have a pretty old AX45V mobo and usb 1.1 I want to be able ti utilise hi speed usb2. I have a number of devices including my daughters ipod which keeps giving me messages Hi speed device in non hi speed port. I don't want to have to upgrade my PC. It still performs all the functions that I need from it, however I want usb2 if possible. Is it only a matter of a usb2 PCI card (plug and play) or do I need more. If I only need a card, is there any one that is more suited to my mobo. I run XP home. Any help appreciated.

USB = Universal Serial Bus and when it first entered the market the maximum speed was 1,5Mbit/s (this was called USB 1.0).
After a while they upgraded to usb 1.1 (12Mbit/s) and then to USB 2.0 (480Mbit/s). This is where we are now. Your computer is able to handle USB2.0, however if you have an old printer or something else, which was designed when the standard was USB 1.0, the maximum speed for that device is 1,5Mbit/s.
If you plug a newer device into a "slow" usb port (for example your usb port =1.0 and device supports usb 2.0) , then you will get information saying : "this device can perform faster...."
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.
The USB header on the MOBO is an 8 or 10 pin in a 2X4 or 2X5 orientation. there will be one pin missing, that is not unusual. the plug will have the same socket filled. Most MOBOs have multiple USB headers on it and they are almost aleays labeled USB2 or whatever number.
Hi your mobo can support processors of 400 FSB . The best you could do is use a 2.4 or 2.66 ghz processor . Processors of 533 FSB or beyond are not supported , all these are uni core proc., the newer procs., are all dual or quad cores so beware do not buy a wrong processor
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.
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.
