am still relativly new to computing, although after a year, and this forums help, i am now a lot more knowledgable. However,,,,, istill cant get my head around a few things, namely usb host controllers etc.
First noticed a problem when i bought an external hard drive for back up of my huge music files. When i copied the files to the external drive, i got a message telling me that , i quote, " a high speed device is connected to a low speed port " then it goes on to say " please enable a high speed host controller ".
Now i figure that if my comouter only supports usb 1.1, then it will just run at 12mbts /sec, whereas a usb 2 would speed things up to 480 /sec. i have bought extra pci usb ports (USB 2 ), and more recently a Belkin usb 2 hub, as i now have an mp3 player and digital camera and need the extra ports. But ,, i still get the same message everytime i connect any of these devices.
Could some one enlighten me a bit more. ??????
Can you actually upgrade the host controller in your pc, to enable the high speed devices to work at high speed ?????? or are we talking about a new motherboard ???
Any advice would be much appreciated.
