If you have an available PCI slot you can upgrade to 2.0 by installing a USB 2.0 card.

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.

I have loaded USB 2.0 Driver but System could not detect that USB 2.0 Port when I connect USB 2.0 device to all six USB Port. I am having DG31PR Motherboard. I checked in BIOS setup. High speed port enable...


You have not mention what Operating system is on your PC.

For Windows OS XP, you just have to install at least XP Service Pack 2 or higher... and the USB 2.0 ports will function. For Vista & Win 7 OS, the USB 2.0 drivers is in the Operating System when you install Windows.

Hope it helps.

USB ports on computers can be either the older '1.1' speed, or the newer (and much faster) '2.0' high-speed.

Your external drive is capable of using the high-speed USB 2.0 interface, but you connected it to a USB 1.1 port on your computer.

So, you can either "live" with the slower speed of a 1.1 port, or you can "upgrade" -- add hardware to your computer to add USB 2.0 ports -- so that the external drive will be over 7 times faster.

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.

When I plug a wireless cable into a USB port, the computer tells me that there are High speed USB ports available but does not inform where to find them.


Right-Click on My Computer, Properties, Device Manager, then Click on Universal Serial Bus Controllers, u will see the USB port available on your computer there. Also, at the same time you are doing this, try checking all the USB ports on your computer...most times, the HIGH-Speed USB Ports (USB 2.0) are always seperated from the other USB ports...so try the USB port seperated from others.
In your own case, Acer TravelMate 2303LCi has just 3 USB slots, a PC card slot, modem and network slot. No floppy drive, no TV-out, no IR, no Wi-Fi. So check-out USB Ports, the USB port infront of the Laptop beside the Audio Port and and the Speaker, on the extreme-right is your USB 2.0 High-Speed Port.

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.

High Speed USB Port


This list of cardbus adapters on ebay should do the trick for you. You would have to use a pcmcia device (hopefully you have a slot available).
