? about USB ports

alrighty, everytime i plug something into my usb port, it always brings up a lil box saying a high speed usb port 2.0 is recommened. so i started looking arond and came across this website www.driver-pro.com. Well it had this download called driver robot, where its suppose to see if your computer needs any updated drivers. so is a good download or have any of you used this before?

also, my computer is a dell dimension L1000R.

Is this your pc?

t seems to us that Dell took the money it saved on making the Dimension L1000r pretty and spent it on performance parts. A hot 1GHz Intel Pentium III, 128MB of SDRAM (synchronous dynamic RAM), and a 100MHz system bus add some fire to an otherwise plain beige mid-tower. We can't complain about looks in the sub-$1,000 price category, though. For $998, we would simply be happy to get such potent hardware housed in a pine shipping crate.

Further fueling this austere Dell's fire is a 7,200rpm (revolutions per minute), 20.5GB Quantum Fireball Plus AS hard drive. Compared to typical 5,400rpm drives, a 7,200rpm model noticeably increases how fast a system "feels." This performance boost comes from reading and writing data faster, as well as finding data the drive is looking for more quickly. The result is faster system boots, snappier application launches, and swifter access to your documents.

However, for every performance enhancement in a budget computer, there's a drawback. A 48X (for CDs, X equals 150KBps [kilobytes per second]) Lite-On LTN 486 CD-ROM drive sits in the Dell's case rather than a CD-RW (CD-rewriteable) or DVD (digital versatile disc) drive. This means you won't be making your own music CDs, backing up your files to cheap CD-RW discs, or watching DVD blockbuster movies on this PC. That's disappointing to many home users, but it's necessary to squeak this Dell in under $1,000.

Essentially what it's saying is the piece of hardware you plugged in is a 2.0 compliant device and it's being throttled through a 1.0 port.

Not all ports on certain devices are 2.0 compliant, some are 1.0. You might want to try another port. You might not have a USB 2.0 port on that computer, it's old enough to where it might not be equipped. USB 2.0 is substantially faster than 1.0, but the problem is lots and lots of hardware is marked USB 2.0 compatible - and not USB 2.0 compliant - there is a big difference.

...

I went through that on one of my servers. I plugged a USB HD into the back to copy 700GB of stuff and said it would take 40 hours. After jacking with it for a while, I plugged into the front and it went much faster. That's when I realized the rear ports were only USB1 speed. WTF would they put slow USB ports on a server?
