I have the following issue(I don't know if this is an issue, or just a fact): on connecting USB Flash memory sticks (Corsair 2gb usb 2.0) I get low speeds (600 kb/s) so obviously USB 2.0 doesn't work on my system. Can I solve this somehow?
Chipset i845D (Abit bd7-raid) + windows XP sp2 corporate (updates till january 2007 integrated)
note: I see on my abit mb's page a driver for USB 2.0 for WIN ME, and nothing for XP (so I figure out this should have been installed by the OS, only fact is, it isn't (nothing "enhanced" in the USB devices properties under device manager))
Question: Can my chipset support usb 2.0? Is there anything else to do? Some suggestions, opinions?
The problem isn't drivers. The problem is your old motherboard only supports USB 1.0. You will not be able to run a USB devise at the higher speed of the 2.0. If you want USB 2.0 you will have to get an exspantion card.
that was my first thought (and later I read somewhere that the hardware for USB2.0 was implemented from the I845E chiptsets on) but then why the official abit BD7 raid mainboard page posts a driver for usb 2.0 for WIN 9x/ME? This is where I started to be puzzled ....
I get it, I845D does not have usb 2.0 hardware support, this is what you say and I intuated it, but hope it isn't true. (I said the E, just like that,could have said X, I cannot remember precisely which model had the first usb 2.0 hardware implementation, in any case this was a post somewhere, I cannot be certain on the validity of that info, the thing that I'm 100% sure is that from i845 on usb 2.0 was no issue).
Ok then, help me figure this out: WHY is the USB 2.0 driver for that chipset (I845D) available for WIN 9x/ME, on the abit page for the bd7raid(i845d)?
Mistake? Don't tell me I have to install WIN 95 to run the USB 2.0 stick
yep, that's how I think of it as well, in any case I'm not installing 9x to see what happens...I know XP SP2 installs native usb2.0 drivers, that's why I posted my current win version...Thx for the time mate!
Maybe I get lucky with another dinosaur like me on 845D that tells me his experience with USB flash memory sticks
