I've got an USB controller card installed and the drivers too but how do I make sure that my drive is really running on usb 2.0 and not 1.1 ? On the device driver it's stated my controller does exist.Is there a way I could check it through ?
1. Right-click the My Computer icon and select Manage.
Note: Windows XP users may need to click Start to access the My Computer icon.
2. Click the Device Manager icon.
3. Click the plus (+) sign next to Universal Serial Bus Controllers.
Note: If Universal Serial Bus Controllers is not listed, there is a problem with the USB controller or the USB controller is not enabled in the computer's BIOS. Please contact the computer or card manufacturer for updated drivers and/or for information on how to fix or enable the USB controller.
1. If Enhanced Host Controller and/or USB 2.0 Root Hub Device is listed, then the computer has USB 2.0 ports.
2. If Universal Host Controller and/or Open Host Controller is listed, then the computer has USB 1.1 ports.
What if both types show up? I have a Gigabyte 8IEXP MB, which is supposed have USB 2.0; 2 USB ports on the back plate and 4 others via 2 plugs on the MB. In the BIOS I have USB 2.0 enabled. But when I look in device manager, I see 1 enhanced ost controller and three standard host controllers.
I have been closly monitoring this issue for the past couple of months because I work in the Internet industry and as an IT Administrator for a popular ISP (no names mensioned sorry) I am pleased to see at last Microsoft have done something about this because it has become some what a nightmare...
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
