USB 2.0

Postby rockingmtranch » Mon Jun 18, 2007 4:43 pm

Here's a tricky one. My 'friend' has WindowsXP Pro on his machine. Very old copy (build 2600). No service pack. Never connects to the internet. Hook up a camera and 'high speed device plugged into non-high speed port' comes up. So, it has USB 1.1. How to get 2.0 on it?

I don't know that you can. I bought a USB 2 card reader and my XP Home doesn't seem to have a clue what to do with it. It recognized I had plugged something in and even said it was installed but nothing happened. Granted, I don't know what I should have done and I haven't looked into it. Do they make converters? I will try to Google this soon.

Hiya rockingmtranch,

You can purchase a new PCI card that has USB 2.0 support.
They are not very much and all is needed is to remove the old 1.1 card and install the new one.
http://www.usb-2-0.com/usb-2-0-pci-card.html

Also heres the fastest firewire card which is FireWire 800.
Just a sample site of one of many brands.

Ok. Wait. I have 6 USB ports all from the motherboard. I did buy a USB 2.0 4 port hub that was supposed to be 'backwards compatible?' so that my high speed devices would work. You think a pci card would make a difference?

Also, same MB dual booting with Ubuntu and all the ports are 2.0.

What kind of card reader did you say Jean? What does it do? SD cards or what?

I have never tried hubs before but I know that PCI card will work because thats what I use here on XP Pro and Vista.

Most all USB 2.0 PCI cards are backwards compatible with USB 1.1 devices.

Heres one for example:
http://www.usb-2-0.com/belkin-f5u220.html

Dual booting makes no difference as I dual boot with XP Pro and Vista Ultimate. :wink:

Oh, in Linux they all work fine. And the specs on that Belkin card read the same as the hub I purchased. I debated when I bought the hub due to the fact that it actually plugs into a USB port but the packaging assured me that if the pc had 1.1 ports I was good to go. And, the disc that came with the motherboard states it has 2.0 on it but when I try to install it, a pop-up says 'USB 2.0 can be found here: blah, blah, blah, Micro$oft, blah, blab, bahooey'. I guess all along I was trying to comfirm if M$ was the true owner of 2.0. Hmph. I did say at the beginning that this was a tricky one :). I'll just have to be content with having the 'high speed device...' pop-up whenever I plug my flash drive into one of the ports. It still works the way I want it too so no biggie in that respect. I sure appreciate the help though HH and Jean. The search continues.....or is it 'The truth is out there'...

Yes it's for my camera. It is entirely possible the reader is shot. I got it for .99 on eBay. Shipping cost $5.99 LOL

Surprisingly, those little SD cards do go bad. I have one that did. I basically use them like a hard drive. I attach my camera, go to my computer and it lists it as another drive. I open that and retrieve my pics then delete from the drive or format the drive is also possible. You know....erase the evidence :wink:

The card is good, it works fine in my laptop with built in reader, and in the camera.

And you can't plug the camera directly with the card in it? Then it just may be the $.99 reader. LMAO Jean at paying more in shipping. What is this fun little reader anyway?

Oh, and that avatar, I had forgotten that I registered my Ubuntu machine last year. Now, on the forums I'm seeing in the 400 thousands. I feel special. Wanna feel? :lol:

We are way off topic here, but I don't have the energy to split the topic right now. SD/Mini/SD/RS-MMC/MMC/TF model:CF-RS205 is all the information on the unit. It's blue LMAO.

Yes I can plug the camera in and download. But using the card reader should be much faster was my reason for wanting one. I got a card reader for $7 even if I did pay more for shipping. And at 99 cents a pop they are probably not the highest quality. One of these days I will test it on the laptop and see if it works there.

USB woes

Postby gimpguy2000 » Wed Jul 18, 2007 2:07 pm

Hi all, for starters, if you get a reader or hub, you most likely will have issues with cameras and such. Anyone interested, take a look here....

http://www.everythingusb.com/usb2/faq.htm

Much easier than explaining but may help many of you out. It also has a link to a free driver scan, "which I haven't tried as of yet".


Cheers,

Paul

Yep. That 'free driver scan' is Windows only. Doggonit. :( The site does say Nvidia makes a driver. I have an Nvidia motherboard and when I try to install the driver from the install CD, it says the driver is provided by M$ at Windows Update. ARGHHHHHH!!!!!
