The usb mass storage device is a high speed usb device


Hi All,

I am getting this error:


The usb mass storage device is a high speed usb device and will function at reduced speed.  This is on a windows 2003 server machine.  This is a Dell latitude c800 notebook.  It worked when windows 2000 was on there.  Anyone have any suggestions.

thanks

This message appears if the device is USB 2.0 compliant but it attached to a USB1.1 port.

The device should work properly but will be limitied to 12Mb/s instead of the 400Mb/s of USB 2.0.

(Saw this the first time I plugged my USB 2.0 pen drive into my 2003 server....)

Windows XP and Windows 2003 started showing those notifications.  Windows 2000 does not have them.  Windows 2000 was written when the USB 1.1 specification was standard and the USB 2.0 specification was just a dream in some uber-geeks eye.  So, the error messages appear as a notification in XP or 2003...but the device should work as designed, though at the reduced speed that Dave Dietz mentioned.

The Dell specs for the c800 just say USB.  Generally when someone has USB 2.0 they are prout to state it.

For a similar reason I wanted a Compaq NC6000 over one of the Dells laptops.  I have an external hard drive that I use to back up my system weekly (should probably be more).  Anyway...I could not imagine doing it over USB 1.1.  I have purchased USB 2.0 PCI cards for my old USB 1.1 workstations.  There are also USB 2.0 PCMCIA cards if a USB 2.0 connection is important to you.  The prices are fairly reasonable now (they were near $70 a year or so ago).

This is the highest rated PCMCIA USB 2.0 card at NewEgg (but please don't rely on just the reviews alone as they generally encompass satisfaction with the card and satisfaction with NewEgg)

Obviously you can search TigerDirect, etc. if you want.

Cheers,

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for you comments, this is appreciated.  I see this message, but I can't see anything on the drive.  It does not show in my computer or anywhere?????  I can understand that this is a USB message, but I need somethings off of this jump drive.  Does anyone have any insight as to why this is not showing?

thanks in advance and once again, I appreciate your comments

Hi Everyone:  I found the answer as to why this does not show:  You have to go into DISK Management and you can click on the USB storage and add it there and this works for when the connection does not show in the MY Computer

thanks
