I have a 4 yr old computer (from one of the brand names that's hardly
worth mentioning nowadays).  Two of the USB ports in
the rear are 2.0 (the ones next to the NIC port).  The mb is Intel 850

the NEC enhanced host controller (with the suffix B1).  The associated
drivers are listed in device manager as 5.1.2600 (updated from the
Intel website).  The BIOS shows that USB 2.0 is enabled.

So, what's the problem?  I hooked up a USB 2.0 drive enclosure, and I
was greeted with the warning balloon telling me that I had plugged a
high-speed USB device into a non-high speed port.  (In fact, plugging
the enclosure into any of the 2.0 ports gives me that warning.)

(besides the usual "check/update the drivers, bios, etc.").  Any

Re: USB 2.0 problem

You need SP2 to get the USB 2.0 driver stack.  ...and I remember reading a
long time ago about various problems people were having with some USB 2.0
external hd's, so you may have to Google around on that subject.
