Asus A7N8X and USB 2.0?
Hi I have an Asus A7N8X Deluxe 1.04 board. I plugged in my USB 2.0 reader in the back USB port, and I got the dialog box saying it was installing the new device. Every time I got to My Computer, it takes like 1 minute or so to load, it says searching for items. I know the reader is not a problem because I tried the reader on a Compaq USB 2.0 computer and it zipped right along. I know I have USB 2.0 and it seems to be running super slow. When I open the task manager, it actually tells me that My Computer is " Not responding", then eventually it will open. I have installed the latest Nvidia N-Force 3.13 patch. Is there another driver I need for USB 2.0? I am running XP Pro with Service Pack 1. In the device manager, it says USB root hub, instead of USB 2.0 root hub.
does this only happen when reader is plugged in ?
if so try uninstalling the reader driver and reinstall?
did you install service pack 1 before motherboard drivers ??
my A7N8X 2.0 doesn't indicate USB 2.0 either in devive manager , but it should indicate " standard Enhanced PCI to USB host controller" - "Enhanced" means that USB2.0 is working
Yes. The computer only freezes when the reader is plugged in. I did install Service Pack 1 first, and then I installed the drivers. It would not allow me to install the USB 2.0 driver until I installed SP1. In the device manager, it does say "standard Enhanced PCI to USB host controller". I was playing around with it, and I found out that if I just let it read the card, and wait until the screen pops up showing the data on the card, it doesn't freeze. I think maybe I am trying to rush it, and that is making the computer to freeze. When I say freeze, I mean "My Computer stops responding" and I have to close it using the task manager. Thanks for clarifying that I do have USB 2.0 running.
