Why do I get regular messages from Windows telling me that a device would work better if I connected it to a USB2 port when my PC has only USB 2 and the powered hub I use is also USB2?

Thanks for looking.

You may have a problem with the enhanced driver in device manager.

Look under USB and check one of the drivers shows as Enhanced Driver.

They look OK

Is it one particular device causing the message or one particular Port?

It could be worth uninstalling ALL the USB drivers and rebooting and let windows reinstall the USB drivers. However this can be a prolem if you only have a keyboard works by USB either wired or wireless.

If you are satisfied that your usb ports are working correctly and the message is just niggling you the article I posted earlier tells you how to disable this....

To do so, open the Device Manager (type Device Manager into the Start menu and press Enter), right-click the USB host controller under Universal Serial Bus controllers, and select Properties. Uncheck the Tell me if my device can perform faster check box on the Advanced tab.

Thank you both. Still looking at that interesting article. Probably disable as you suggest doesnt seem too important. Suddenly realised it seems to be to do with the USB mouse so will try changing that first.
