USB Device


I recently purchased an HP desktop computer. It has USB ports on the front that are shown as USB 2.0. When I plug in a Lexar JumpDrive it shows up as a warning that a "slow" drive has been plugged in.

It works but I question whether anything that I plugged in would show up as a USB 2 device.

Is there a software switch that has to be thrown or there a setup parameter that needs to be turned on?

You must check if your machine has installed the driver for those USB ports, if it does not have it, install it.
