    I recently had to format my hard drive and I re-installed Windows XP w/SP2 from CD. All my USB devices were detected and work properly including my USB external hard drive, however they are only 1.1 capable. I have installed every update from Microsoft to no avail. I tried using 2.0 drivers that came with my external hard drive but after they supposedly install nothing is changed. I tried uninstalling all USB Host Controllers but have had no luck. All USB ports were working at 2.0 before the format.

    This has been a real drag on data transfer from my external hard drive. Thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

    Thanks alot, Triple6. That did the trick!

    Do you have any errors in Device Manager? Do you see a USB 2.0 or Enhanced USB controller in Device Manager?

    If none of the above is true then I'd check the BIOS setup, on many boards you can disable USB 2.0 functionality in the BIOS.
