IBM Thinkpad message: 'this machine can run faster with the USB 2.0 hub.

Original title: Thinkpad USB 2.0 Hub.


I have an IBM Thinkpad T-21 which is under Ubuntu & Windows xp.  I primarily use Windows XP.  The pop-up that keeps occurring is "this machine can run faster with the USB 2.0 hub.  Can you tell me how to upgrade my USB 2.0 Hub?  Would like to know because I can't sync my Android phone with my computer until I do it. Thank you.


Are you sure you copied this error message properly?  In other words, he says that the hub could perform better if connected to a USB 2.0 port?  As far as I can determine that the T21 is not come with a USB 2.0 port, even if you connect a USB 2.0 device (for example a hub), the unit will only race as fast as the port allows it.

What is the brand and model of your terminal?

It is possible that the message means the opposite (i.e., your computer has a USB 2.0 port, but the hub is only a USB 1.1 device).

USB 2.0 was introduced in 2001, so if you bought your computer before 2001, it is likely that you use USB 1.1 or 1.0.

Open the Device Manager (start > run > devmgmt.msc > OK)
Expand the category of 'USB Bus controllers'.
If you see the "Enhanced" work for one or more of the listed devices, you have a USB 2.0 port.  If you do not see "Enhanced", you have USB 1.1.

If the problem is that the USB port on the computer is not 2.0, so your only solution is to buy a USB 2.0 PC Card adapter.  Example and example 2
If the problem is that the hub is not 2.0, then you will need to buy a new hub.

    Hi lisa100,

  • How can I get the drivers for xp usb / get the device can run faster in the listed ports


    See the discussion of the difference between USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 and why this error message
    If you have an old computer, you do not all USB 2.0 ports or some of your USB ports may be 1.1 e.a. 2.0

    Open the Device Manager (start > run > devmgmt.msc > OK) and expand the "Controllers of Bus USB" section by clicking on the + sign to the left.

    Are there warning icons? If so, provide details

    It will probably take several entries for "PCI to USB Host Controller" or similar terms.  Please report if one (or several) of these entries are for a "PCI to USB Enhanced Host Controller.  If none of the USB controllers is "strengthened", you do not have USB 2.0

  • When trying to install Micro Cookbook 5.5 program get this message "this version is not compatible with the version of windows that you are running."

    Original title: MIcro Cookbook 5.5 install problems on Windows 7

    When I try to install a recipe program I get this message.  This version is not compatible with the version of windows that you are running.  Check the system information of computers to see if you need a x 86 (32 bit) or a or x 64 (64-bit) version of this software and then contact the editor.  I knew how to do this job of file transfer to the 32 bits of the 64 folder, but it won't let me install the program.  This software is no longer made.  The program is Micro Cookbook 5.5

    Do not transfer you files x 86 or x 64, that simply do not work and other issues.

    The program is designed for Windows 9, and if you have a version of win7 64 bit and the origonal is a 16-bit program, which she may very well, it will not install or run on 64-bit PC, so err msg you see.

    If the installation of the drive try this, locate the setup.exe, rt click & Select compatibility and select Windows 9 *.

  • BlackBerry smartphones can not synchronize with the USB cable plugged into charge pod


    I read on the web site of, in the details of charge pod ( ) that the pod can handset with charger travel or data cable for charge and/or sync with a BlackBerry smartphone. So, my question is related on a problem or a misunderstanding of me to this description.

    I want to know if we could recharge and synchronize the BlackBerry via USB cable or is only responsible for the BlackBerry when connected that way. My second question is, is it possible to synchronize the BlackBerry with the USB cable plugged into the pod or not?

    Because I got a request from one of my users about the fact that his BlackBerry 9000 can not synchronize when it is on his group.

    Thank you very much!


    It's a loading dock. It is useful, because just drag you your "BOLD" in there and it will load (just like the 8300 Curve).
    If you want to synchronize, you can plug a usb on the side of the appliance cord. This can be done while the machine is in its dock, where the description.

    I have the same crib, but for the 8300. It's really worth buying. I'm happy with it every day.

  • I use Firefox. My MacBook Pro is quite low on space. I have been informed that Chrome is a 'light' browser, why my Mac can run faster with real Chrome?

    I'm trying unload applications that I didn't need and moving video/pix files to other locations of storage

    Note that Firefox has also a few hundred MB for two locations of the Firefox profile folder (disk cache and the main folder and other data as to the function of safe and thumbnail navigation).

    You can choose to replace the automatic cache and defined management as the lower maximum rate.

  • HP color laserjet cm2320nf mfp (ff3be2) can be networked with the USB wireless adapter?

    Howdy, first post here - rules of noob.  Search for as well as I could but have not seen this answered.  Recently, we changed the place of our home network router.  We cannot reach our hp color laserjet cm2320nf mfp (ff3be2) Ethernet cable not more.  You ask if we give a wireless (Wifi, no bluetooth) to USB adapter to the USB port of the printer, will be the printer network through it?  Sure it works on computers, but don't know if the printer will look network via the USB port.  In any case, the problem we are trying to solve becomes the printer on our network of origin when we can not connect it via Ethernet.  Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the reply.  Yes, I thought that I understood that after doing some more than browse the Internet.  Just ordered the Ethernet of IOGEAR Universal for adapter Wi - Fi N.  Hoping that the printer will think it is plugged.  Should do based on what I've read.  Thank you, James.

  • How old, a driver can be used with the USB-GPIB controller?

    Hello, I have a litter of Nicolet who I'm trying to control using an NI USB-GPIB controller and a Nicolet provided the program. The software were made in 1995 and told me it was made to work with the NI AT-gpib cards and I would need to use a pilot more OLD, BUT I don't have access to one of these cards for a purchased a USB-GPIB, hoping that it would work. A pilot more FORMER will support the GPIB-USB?

    Sorry for you, but not

    This is a really old software and works only on the driver to the gpib.

    Written in LabVIEW software would go from before this date.

  • Satellite Pro A60 PL: message: USB device can run faster


    I have a problem with the USB 2.0 drivers in my Satellite Pro A60 PL. everytime when I connect the message apear theres USB 2.0 device this device can run faster. What can I do about it?

    Hi guys

    I received the same message. It s not an error but a balloon tip Windows.
    I didn't find the reason for this message because my phone supports USB 2.0 ports too and I also connected a USB 2.0 compatible device.

    I've tired to remove the Device Manager, the controllers and the USB hubs and updated the Win XP operating system to the last State. I've also updated the driver chipset but sometimes (not always) this message again using a disc HARD 2.5 USB.

    I read in some professional computer magazines that this message is normal and it might appears with some SATA external USB hard drives. So you can ignore it.
    It s nothing serious.


  • USB device can run faster

    Hi all

    I recently bought a USB-6008.  When I plug it into my PC, I get a message "this device can perform faster.  This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port.  For a list of available ports, click here. "When I click on the message, it shows me a list of available ports, but none of them seem not to be USB 2.0.

    All my USB ports are supposed to be USB 2.0.  It is an Asus P5N72 - T Premium mobo.  I have updated the bios, and made sure that USB 2.0 is selected in the bios Setup.  I use Win XP SP3.  According to the Microsoft Web site, there was a known problem with XP supporting USB 2.0 on Asus Motherboards, but that he was supposed to have been fixed in SP1.

    I realize that it is a matter of Windows probably more than a question of data acquisition, but I spent the entire afternoon on Microsoft, Asus and other sites.  Can anyone help?

    Thank you


  • This device can perform faster ".

    the prompt: this device can run faster ' custody arise and no device is connected?  No usb port has a hip device?

    each comment that the system continues to show me tells me to unplug the unit.  There is no device.  what Miss me?

    Thank you

    Go into Device Manager, there may be something inside your computer, not only a USB / external peripheral. Look for something with an icon of warning or something. See if you can see what's wrong, give a screenshot or two, and we can work from there :)
