I am helping transfer files to a windows XP computer. It has sevice pack 3 installed, However when I use a USB hard drive to place files on it I get a warning, when pluged in, that I should use a USB2 port to have faster file transfer. The bios statistic, clearly says that it has USB2 ports on motherboard. The files are slow to write on the computer from USB hard drive, Much slower that on another win XP computer with a slower mother board. I remember back when I ran win XP as my main OS, that I had to change an OS setting after a service pack install, to get USB2 to function instead of the previous USB1 speed. I looked in a web search for info , but found none that applied.
My Question, - Can an Expert tell me, how can I get the windows XP OS, to use the USB2 through put speed, instead of the present USB1 speed? ?
