USB Port Driver problem!!

Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.scanner (More info?)

Hi everyone, I do bulk scanning of about 100 images a day using a USB
scanner. My PC has an Asus A7N8X motherboard and I am running XP SP1.
I sometimes get errors when scanning and I have been told by Epson that I
need to install the correct USB drivers for the USB ports. At the moment, I
have the USB port descriptions showing Standard Enhanced on the device
manager. I'm not sure what brand of ports are mounted on the motherboard but
I've been trying for days now to install the right drivers but no luck. I
can't shift the "standard" drivers.

Can anyone tell me
a) where I can find the right drivers for my motherboard USB ports
b) How I correctly install these.

A BIG thanks in advance!

    http://www.usbman.com may very well have what you are seeking. When
    you see NEC Enhanced it usually means you are using the correct USB
    2.0 drivers. When you download the drivers place them is a folder you
    make on the desktop (Call them USB 2.0) then download to that
    location. Then go into device manager under USB and select after
    double clicking to open the file screen, update drivers. Then follow
    the prompts to then select the place where the newer USB drivers
    reside. However many of the motherboards made in the last two years
    have this USB 2.0 versus the 1.1 version. If you already have them it
    may be a simple thing as making sure that the USB 2.0 device is
    actually attached to a USB 2.0 port. A bios update from the
    motherboard maker many times can fix this problem. But again an easier
    way is to go out and buy a Belkin USB 2.0 add in card and install it
    to your computer in any available PCI (white) slot. After you load the
    drivers (Not needed in Windows XP) it will install USB 2.0 for your
    use. Read the package since only ports 1&2 and 5 on the card are high
    speed 2.0 then others are not.

    You then attach that scanner to the USB 2.0 card and away you should
    run. You may need something as simple as updated drivers for the
    scanner, in this case search out that situation first.

    I hope I helped?

    Microsoft Update.

    Unplug everything from USB ports then:
    Go into Device Manager and remove the USB Controller, do not let XP restore
    the drivers, then go to Microsoft Update.
    There is currently Service Pack 2 for Windows XP.

    It is a huge download, I think around 19 Megabytes.
    There is an offer for a free SP 2 Update CD from Microsoft, if you will wait
    to receive in the mail. Takes 4 to 6 weeks to get in the mail.

    The USB drivers are included in Service Pack 2. They are also available for
    SP1, if you do not want to update to SP2.
