USB 2.0/USB 1.0

This one's been bugging me for a while, but I just started a backup that looks like it will take weeks... :-(

I have two identical Western Digital USB external hard drives, connected to the USB ports on my motherboard.

Weirdly, one acts as a USB 2.0 device, while the other acts as a USB 1.0 device - for example, I occasionally get a message that "this device could run faster" - and writing to one is at a fraction of the speed of writing to the other.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Interesting you should say that - I was thinking exactly the same thing... :-)
