Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
I have a problem with a GMU2P-04V USB2 card. I have a K7VAT, VIA KT-133 CHIPSET and ATX Form Factor Main Board. I have the latest BIOS and run XP Pro sp2 which has all the latest updates. There are 4 ports on the card and 2 USB1 ports on the back of the original case. I have tried searching for new driver updates and have installed the 2.1 March 2008 edition which was the latest I could find.
The problem I have Is no matter what Port I use for connecting a USB2 device Windows throws up a pop up saying this device will run faster if you connect it to the USB2 port, and shows 4 empty ports, when in fact they are all occupied. I have the original installation cd with the drivers but XP installs its own drivers before you have a chance to, also the instructions say it the card supports XP but the driver folder on the CD only mentions ME and 2000 editions!
Also in device manager it shows I have an advanced host USB and relevant usb roots installed OK.
I would be most grateful if you could throw some light on this subject as I have been trying to resolve the issue for a number of years now.
Does any one know if my motherboard does support USB2, if not can you buy any external device that will work?
Kind regards Mr B. Hutchinson
What do you mean when you say that the 4 USB2 ports are all occupied?
when you say that there are 2 USB1 ports on the back of the case: are those ports connected to the motherboard at all?
what devices are you using to test your USB ports? is it possible that those are USB 1 devices?
