The easiest way for you to do this is to get a USB 2.0 pci card and install it into the computer. Here is one that is available for $10

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815124008&cm_re=usb_2.0_pci_card-_-15-124-008-_-Product

These are fairly easy to install. It does require you to open the computer case. Remember to unplug the computer from the electricity before starting and properly ground yourself before touching any components in the case(static electricity can damage them). You should use a grounding strap that hooks to your wrist and attatches to the case or touch the case each time before touching any components. Once the case is open you will need to locate an empty PCI slot. Then use a screwdriver to remove the metal "Blank" that is covering the opening at the back of the computer. Then you can insert the new card with the USB ports facing the back of the computer and use firm but gentle pressure to insert the card into the port. Once the card is fully seated secure it with the screw you removed from the blank. Then plug the computer back in and run any installation software that came with the card if required and that is it.

Hi,

It would be a good idea to as because of most devices being USB 2 you will get a message saying "this device can perform faster" each time you plug a USB2 device into the computer.

What you need to do is go to Dell's support website (link below) and download the latest bios update and chipset driver for your computer.
Make sure you follow the instructions for the bios update carefully. After its done you should have the USB2 upgrade.

Can my designer 1 be updated to use a cd and a usb port.


In one word: No. Sorry. It can be updated to a USB port, but the port will only accept Husqvarna formatted USB sticks, not an external CD drive. This is not to say you have to purchase Husqvarna USB sticks as well as pay for the USB upgrade - it will take any USB sticks, they just have to be formatted with the Husqvarna software which comes with the upgrade.

When i plug in my memorycard adapter into the usb ports .the baloon says i need a hispeed usb host controller.


The memory card you have is for a USB2 configuration and the USB port configuration or port you are using is USB1 configuration.
Try a different port or check the manual for port layout or description.

UPGRADING USB 1.1 TO USB 2


I searched and found a 1/2 height PCI card with 2 USB ports, plus a internal connector for two more ports. My little NetVista will not hold a full-height PCI card. Get out your tin snips.
Works like a charm !
FYI: I disabled the BIOS USB support for the old ports, and plugged the old MB cable into the new PCI card. I now have two 2.0 ports on the front, and two 2.0 ports on the back. However, I lost the ability to boot from USB

Missing USB controller driver


When posting driver issues, you need to specify what kind of equip you are dealing with, not just the issue. Most liekly you need to go to the manufacturs website of your motherboard or laptop and find vista drivers for it.

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
