I have a ASUS P5RD1-VM motherboard and it says in the box and in websites that it's usb ports are usb2.0. In the cd included, a driver for USB2 is included but it only says that if I'm running on a XP service pack 1 or higher then the system already has the driver for usb2. I am using service pack 2 and I can seem to get my usb2 to work. i am searching for a driver online but can't find anything. i don't know waht company manufactured the usb.

in the device manager window, my pci to usb open host controller is ALI but cant seem to find a driver for it.
anybody know how to fix this problem? Where can I download a driver?

I attached a screenshot of my device manager (if it helps)

get to your system's bios settings and look for a setting to enable usb 2.0 alot of times it's not enabled by default

Yes, and make sure your chipset drivers are installed. they may have the right drivers.

PS: I see that you have an enhanced host controller listed. That is one way of listing a USB 2.0 device but it may be an add on card.

First of all, thank you for your replies.
I tried what you guys said. I went to the bios setup and go to USB Config. here are the original setings.

USB Controller: USB OHCI + EHCI
Legacy USB Support: Enabled
USB 2.0 Controller Mode: Hi Speed
BIOS EHCI Hand Off: Enabled

I saw that USB 2.0 is already set to high speed but i chose full speed and returned back to hi speed. When I loaded my OS again, a USB 2.0 Root Hub is found and installed. but when i connected my ipod this time, it said again that "the device will run faster when using USB2.0"....

I noticed that i still doesn't have a USB2.0 controller in my device manager. i read online that i have to have this... what should i do.

I attached again some screen shots it might help
