Question Strange problem with USB after installing win xp

sponsored links

 
Hi guys,
I recently upgraded from win me to win xp, and it was overall very painless......apart from one thing: Since installing xp my 2.0 USB card seems to be operating at 1.1 speeds. I've tried uninstalling the drivers, and installing the xp ones but that doesn't help.
I would really like some advice on why this could be happening, and some help with getting it sorted.
The problem isn't affecting my cable modem performance (obviously), but it's made my 120gig external USB harddrive pretty much unusable, as I'm sure anyone who has tried using one with a 1.1 connection will understand.

You need to download the latest USB 2.0 drivers for XP from the card/motherboard manufacturer.

Are you running WinXP SP1? If not, you should install the SP1 upgrade.

Wow, cheers guys, all sorted now thanx.
I checked the usb card homepage for a driver update for win xp, and it basically said no drivers were needed, and I just had to dl the sp1 pack. Did that, uninstalled the old driver, and now I'm back to full speed!
Thanx again, you've both saved me having to call someone out to have a look at it ^_^
