USB Hi-Speed Controller for 2.0
Posted 06 April 2007 - 05:07 AM
My old PC doesn't seem to work with my USB 2.0, and says that I need a hi-speed USB controller. Is this some sort of software or do I have to change hardware? I Googled for any software, but couldn't find anything. Help is appreciated. Thanks.
hi try to find latest drivers for your current USB hardware and if that doesnt solve your problems. upgrade your hardware. nowadays you can easily find USB hub ports and its really cheap
hope this helps you

You can tell whether a USB port is version 2.0 by opening the Device Manager and checking for the word "Enhanced" in its description; only USB 2.0 drivers will contain the word "Enhanced."
Usually you won't need any special drivers for 2.0 to work, provided that you have atleast Windows XP SP2.
Of course, thats assuming that everything is working properly. The problem with USB is the whole practical implementation. There still are a number of issues with USB and especially windows. Sometimes drivers just get corrputed, or the cable or port develops problems, the controller might get spoiled etc. What happens in such cases is that either the device fails to get recognised or shows up as "Unknown Device", or windows thinks that its a different device altogether.
In most cases, simply uninstalling all the USB controllers/devices and rebooting the PC fixes the problem.
