I just built a new PC with an ASUS P5K-E WiFi AP. It has 6 USB ports in the back, and 2 in the front. Obviously, being a new card, all of these ports are USB 2.0. But when I plugged my iPod into a back USB port last night, Windows said the device would go faster if plugged into a USB 2.0 port. Sure enough, song transfers were extremely slow. When I plugged it into the front port, I didn't get the 1.1 message and the song transfers were blazing fast. Does anyone know what the source of the problem is?

I am running Windows Vista Ultimate x64.

Hopefully this thread isn't dead yet, cause i don't wanna get flamed for posting another one, but I updated to the latest BIOS AND had checked if USB2 was enabled in BIOS -- it always had been by default. Still having the problem.

I have had the same problem since i installed Vista on this computer. I have a low end ECS board that uses Intel ICH7 so it is not that old yet all my usb ports are recognized as 1.1. I have 2 other computers that i use so its not that big a deal for me but would be nice to fix it. Have tried downloading latest Intel drivers, as well as updating Vista. Not sure if it is just a Vista problem or an X64 issue.
BTW I am using Vista Buisness X64 4gigs of ram E6850. Computer has not upgraded to SP1 so I am waiting for that to happen and hopefully that fixes it.
