I'm after some advice as i'm not sure what to try next.
I'm suffering from extremely slow USB transfer speeds (400kb/s).
I'm using an asus p5n32-e motherboard with the nvidia chipset and vista ultimate 64-bit. I've found that a number of windows hotfixes for usb mention the nvidia however when i download and try to run them they say they are not relevant.
I'm probably being an idiot and missing something very basic but I can't seem to sort it.
Any advice would be great.
Did you mean 400Mb/s? USB 1.0 maximum transfer speed is 12 Mb/s and USB 2.0 is 480 Mb/s. If you really get only 400 kb/s in Vista, what's the USB transfer rate if you boot from a CD and a different OS, e.g., Linux or BartPE with Windows XP?
Yeah, I mean 400kb/s. I was transferring a 700mb file yesterday and it took over 2 hours. I've tried booting XP from a USB and that seems fine so i guess it's a windows issue but not sure what it could be.
Can't see any applications in there that would really do anything.
There's 2 utilities; ASUS PC Probe II and ACPI driver for ATK 0110 virtual device. Neither of which look like they would do anything.
And as alvine said, it's socket 775.
Running out of ideas a bit now!
look in the bios for something like 'usb high speed' or 'usb full speed'.. these are NOT the same. High speed is usb 2.0, full speed is 1.0. if you set for full speed, your bios programs the chipset to support only usb 1.0
I've had this problem, but running XP.
When looking around it seemed to be a nvidia/board isue rather than a OS problem. Most boards use the VIA USB controller chip integrated on the board so its a non issue, but not some nvidia boards(my A8N-SLI Deluxe). Unfortunately, they also don't provide the drivers for it and rely on your OS.
Reinstalling XP with a sp3 seemed to fix it for me.
