    Hi All.... i have a Epson RX500 printer and i keep getting a pop up box telling me this device will perform faster if i connect it to one of the available usb2 ports but it IS already... it says click here to see all available ports which it shows as all being empty even though other devices are plugged into them :confused: ....Thanks for any help!

    Do the USB 2.0 ports work properly with other devices?

    Hi John...there is 5 listings that says USB Root Hub...4 Intel(r)82801FB/FBM USB Universal Host Controller - 2658,2659,264A,265B and 1 Intel(r)82801FB/FBM USB2 Enhanced Host Controller - 265C...Thats 10 in all...no yellow triangles!?!.
    I think its an Epson fault as i never get a pop up with any thing else i connect such as modem, mouse, joystick, digital camera or video etc...i downloaded latest drivers from epson... no good!...Thanks for your time mate!!
