If it is working for you fine, there is no need to change anything You computer is not recognizing your usb 2.0 drive if you have it installed, but you may not:

Make sure you have updated critical updates from in windows xp.

Look in device manager to see what version of usb port your computer has

control panels

Performance and maintenance

Administrative tools

computer management

device management

If you have usb 2.0, click on the device in device management and update it.

If you have an usb 1.1 card, then you simply do not have the USB 2.0 installed in your computer.
