    I am using an HP Pavilion a1250n with an AMD 64 Athlon X2 with Windows XP. I have several USB 2.0 ports but when I plug a USB cable in to a port I get the message that the device will work faster on a USB 2.0 port. Since they are already 2.0 ports is there something I can do so Windows will recognize this?

    Do you have SP2 installed? In Device Manager, do any of the entries under USB Controllers have "Enhanced" in their title?

    I do have SP2 installed and in device manager only one of the USB controllers has enhanced. There are 8 USB controllers on the computer.

    Check the status in device manager and see if they are all working properly according to the computer?

    Device manager indicates that they are all working properly. When I plug in a device to the USB ports they are working, but I just keep getting the message that if I plug the device in to a USB 2.0 port it will work faster. The ports are labled as being USB 2.0 but I keep getting that message.
