Question about ASUS P4SDX Motherboard
When connecting a Western Digital External HDD to the USB port a message stating this device can operate faster always appears. When clicking on the message a port diagram showing 6 USB ports using a SiS a PCI to USB Enhanced Controller is depicted. For this Mobo there are 4 USB2 ports on the rear panel and 2 on the front panel. I do not have the 2 on the front panel connected. Additionally, in the device manager I have 3 USB host controllers listed (the Enhanced USB Controller and 2 Sis 7001 PCI to USB Host controllers). I have Googled this problem and checked the ASUS site but have not found a solution. There is 1 registry patch from ASUS which I applied with no change. I have removed all USB devices and uninstalled the USB drivers, shut down and rebooted a few times with no result. Perhaps a USB card would be the best solution but any help most appreciated.
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.

Follow the steps given below to refresh USB ports.
1. Right-click My Computer icon on the desktop, and then select Properties.
2. Click the Hardware tab.
3. Click the Device Manager button.
4. Click the plus (+) sign to the left of Universal Serial Bus controllers.
5. Right-click the device listed under Universal Serial Bus controller and select Uninstall.
6. Click OK to confirm the removal of the device.
Please note, repeat Steps 5 and 6 until all the devices under Universal Serial Bus Controller are removed.
7. Shut down the computer.
CAUTION: Ensure that the Shut Down option is selected, instead of the Restart option.
8. Wait for 5 seconds and then restart the computer. When the computer restarts, a "Windows has detected new or added hardware" message window will open.
The above steps will refresh the USB ports.
Now connect the USB devices like mouse, video camera, your external usb hard disk...usb hubs...whatever you like and the drivers should install automatically.
Tip: It is always recommended to connect the main usb devices at the rear end usb port, as they require more power to initiate.
