If you want high speed USB you'll need to either plug the device in a USB 2.0 port (if you have one) or get a USB 2.0 card.
What are the specs of your PC?

The easiest solution would be to go to your little local computer shop and ask them for a PCI USB card. These will be USB 2 and you usually get four, sometimes six, of the ports to play with.

Firstly there is no enhanced host controller only Intel® 82371AB/EB PCI to USB Universal Host Controller and USB Composite Device and USB Root Hub.
The computer was new IBM in early 2001. Had to get a new motherboard last year (wish I had come across GtG back then!). Are you saying that the new motherboard I have is 1998?
In the meantime ..... the problem I was concerned about regarding the Zen Neeon has become somewhat obsolete. I was able to transfer and play the music without any problems, however the machine is so small that I can hardly read the screen and the scrolling bar is very sensitive and difficult to manoeuvre so I've decided to return it to the store! Will no doubt get something else, so will look into getting a PCI USB card and then will probably have to get back on here to install it - he, he!

The message could have been you have connected a USB2 device to a USB1 port, and the only problem this should cause is a slower transfer, it should not prohibit the transfer of data, then you need to weigh up how often you use the device and its actual transfer speed against the cost of buying a USB2 card

I've decided to do a bit more research before I purchase again. And thanks for the advice regarding the effect of USB 1 vs USB2. Guess the transfer speed is not really that important to a supernewbie and in fact when I transferred last night I thought it was quite fast, so I'll stick with what I've got!
Cheers and thanks again to you and Neil and Zeus_GB
