    USB transfer rate

    Is there anyway to check or verify USB transfer rates ? I have hi-speed enabled in the BIOS but it seems slow compared to my computer at work. Asus has USB updates on their site, but the install recommends using the ones that are included in XP.

    Just curious I guess......

    you could try a normal hdd benchmark if you're using a hard drive.

    if not, make sure sp1 of xp is installed for best compatibility. what is it that you're using for data transfer?

    I get a message when I plug in my Micro Advantage USB card that says:

    "The unknown USB device is a high speed USB device that will function at reduced speed when plugged into a non-high speed port".

    It also notes "The hubs shown in bold have free ports that can support high speed USB device".

    I copied the print screen of the message but don't know how to attach it to this post. If anyone want a look at it I could email it to you.

    I do have hi-speed enabled in the BIOS. When I try to update the drivers from Asus, here is what is says with the Drivers:


    "Please using Windows XP SP1 (Service Pack 1) or later versions, you DO NOT need to install this driver, because they already contain software support for USB 2.0."

    I do have SP1 installed.

    Suggestions ? Should I go ahead and try to update the drivers anyway ?

    Most digital cameras are not USB 2.0.

    most flash drives are inherently slow at any rate. iwth sp1 it is unecessary to update drivers.
