    "A HI-SPEED USB device is plugged into a non-HI-SPEED USB hub. For assistance in solving this problem, click this messge."

    anyone got this familar message? Is there any drivers that can be upgraded to support the Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Host controller?

    Hello there. Do install WinXP service pack 1. It contains the drivers for supporting high-speed USB 2.0 ports.

    what it means is your USB is ver1.1. you probably have SP1 or SP2 already. if not install it. then re-install your mainboard chipset drivers. its probably in the cdrom that comes with your mbd. otherwise download it from mbd website.

    I am not too sure about your msg cause it is two different things.

    - Hi-Speed USB 2.0 Host controller, XP SP internally supported, it go into one of your
    PCI slot. If using non-standard chipset others than NEC you may need to get the 3rd party
    driver.

    - HI-SPEED USB device meaning some newer device is plug into a non-Hi-Speed hub,
    like USB2.0 connect to USB1.x root hub. It can be that a USB2 hub connect to a USB1.x
    port/hub etc.

    Make sure you are using USB2 hub/port with USB2 high-speed device.

    Cheers

    i had this prob too. My laptop is a usb 1.1, when i plugged in a usb 2.0 device, it will prompt me that same error. But every thing worked fine. Recently i got a pcmcia usb 2.0 card for my laptop and right now i'm enjoying 2.0 speed.

    I don't know all but here's what I know ;

    The error basically means that a USB 2.0 device is being plugged into a USB 1.1 or 1.0 hub on your network.

    However, USB high speed (i.e. 2.0) devices are backward compatible with USB non-hi speed (i.e. 1.1) hub. So there shouldn't be any problem and the hi-speed device should run normally if plugged into a non-hi speed hub except that it will transfer data at the slower 12Mbits/s instead of the hi-speed 480Mbits/s.

    To have USB 2.0 in your system, you need both hardware (USB 2.0 host controller on the motherboard chipset) and software (i.e. USB 2.0 drivers) support.

    Windows XP SP1 have the necessary USB 2.0 drivers. So install SP1 if you're sure that your motherboard chipset supports USB 2.0.

    If Windows XP SP1 is already installed and there is still no USB 2.0 support, it could be due to the motherboard chipset not supporting USB 2.0. So need to buy third party USB 2.0 card (NEC chipset preferred) to slot into the PCI slot on the mother board for USB 2.0 capable headers.

    To check whehther you system has USB 2.0, check out this way : http://www.usbman.com/Guides/checking_for_usb_2.htm

    Warning : The above may not be 100% correct.

    Huh? your sony vaio hdd crashed? Is that often?

    I usually just ignore the message and keep using the usb port and drive.

    not often lah... 1st time after using it for more than 3 yrs... heavily abuse by me...

    not too sure y leh... my previous hdd did not give me such messages whereas this new one does... my guess is it should not be due to the hdd but rather the motherboard itself... also donno how now... i think got to live with this...

    how much does the NEC PCMCIA USB 2.0 cost? where can i get it from?

    You can get it at SLS costs between $18 to $22. Try Fullwell.
