    You may be using an old USB 1.1 port.

    You can go to Comp USA or Best Buy, or really any PC store and buy a USB 2.0 card.

    If you are runnng XP, you will also need SP1 to use USB 2.0.

    Do you have at least SP1 then?

    Assuming your on XP, SP2 is out along with hundreds of hotfixes. I'm not saying get every hot fix, but at least get your system up to SP1.

    USB 2.0 increases the transfer rate of USB devices by 40x. So from 12Mbps to 480Mbps.

    If you formatted your computer, then the issue came up, I suspect you didn't load the motherboard drivers.

    How about a make/model of the computer and/or the motherboard?

    You probably only need to do the service packs and then open Device Manager and update the driver in each usb controller until one says" enhanced" or "enhanced usb 2.0."

    You should have a driver cd from dell....if not visit their website. You can see if you have service packs installed by right clicking on my computer, then properties, from the start menu.
