Hi all-

I just had to put an old USB hub on my system to correct some problems that the USB 2.0 devices were causing.

Now I get the old " This device can run faster if you connect it with usb 2.0 connectors etc"

Is there any way to stop this message from coming up?

thanks,

Tom

Your having a USB 1,1 port selected. In an older PC? Your USB could run faster if you install fast USB drivers or a USB unit. Nothing harmfull, just a gentle gest. Fast USB drivers have to be loaded seperate. So you could speed up things.

Thanks, guys. I was using a USB 2.0 hub. The problem is that the pc stopped recognizing it. I replaced it and the new one had the same problem (I think this came from installing a new N-draft network adapter but I don't know for sure... when I uninstalled the new network adapter, the usb hub still wouldn't work, but the old old one, the USB 1.1, did work, so I have just gone back to that.).

The old old one works fine...slow to transfer backups, but fine for printing etc. so I am happy enough to stay with it, but would just like to kill the "you can be faster" reminder everytime.

There must be a way to do that, no?

thanks,

tom

When you have a USB 1.1 port and want to stop that message you go into Device Manager, right click on the USB Controller, Advanced tab, and check "Don't tell me about USB errors." That may also work for your situation.
