Need USB 2.0 Driver for Asus A8N-E

I just got a multi memory card reader. Plugged it into the front of my box and a Win XP baloon popped up saying "This device can perform faster if it was plugged into a USB 2.0 port." I tried the USB ports on the back an got the same thing.

Doesn't WinXP have generic drivers for USB 2.0?

I checked the Asus site, but couldn't find a USB 2.0 driver for this mobo.

Any ideas?

(right now it's taking me 6 minutes to transfer 185 MB to a 150x 4GB SD card)

  1. Normally with a "registered" copy of win xp you can download service pack 2 and that enables usb 2.0 If however you have a bootleg, and I'm not saying that you do, then usb 2.0 stays usb 1.0

    oops... just saw Bill.. lookin' thru the window at me... is he looking for you??

  2. Nope. I have a legit version with SP2. That's why I'm thinking usb2.0 should be standard. Maybe it's the card reader driver...

    I've noticed similar problems with some devices. It jsut seems to be some sort of problem between the device and XP (it tends to happen to people using USB hubs) all I can say is I know the ports were USB 2 and that other devices had no problem...

    just do a driver update in devices manager and let XP install new drivers
  5. check the bios and make sure the usb setting is set to 'HiSpeed' not fullspeed or low speed.
  6. Try heading over to Nvidia and grabbing the latest chipset drivers for your motherboard (Asus is notorious for being slow to sync their drivers with Nvidia's new releases). This may help.
