Everytime i connect a USB storage device, my Windows XP always has a message pop up saying it is a High speed device, and will function at a reduced speed, continuing to say ' There are no high speed host controllers installed'

I installed some update from windows saying it was a high speed thing; 'WindowsXP-KB943198-v2-x86-ENU'
But i still get the error..

is there a way to fix this? my transfers to usb are EXTREMELY slow .. would love to fix this

Your update was for "USB to serial port" adapters. You know that some computers (older) only have USB 1.1 front ports, while the rear ports are USB 2.0. It also may be you need to reinstall or update your CHIPSET(motherboard) drivers to get USB 2.0. Also, are you running SP2 or SP3 on your computer? SP1 does not support USB 2.0. More information on your computer would help to find your problem.
