Most likely your Server 2003 hardware doesn't support USB 2.0.

It is an old dell poweredge, It does not support usb 2.0  and I have a message it will  run at a reduced speed, but it turned into an unknown device. I unistalled and reinstalled in device manager and select update driver with a Windows 2003 SP2 CD and also tried another identicle usb drive and had the same  problem. Are there any tweeks or downloads to help?

You can purchase a USB 2.0 card that is the only way it will function.
