    I Can not get USB 2.0 working on this comp. I'm running the ASUS a8n sli deluxe board and when I hook up my external hard drive I get the "this device can perform faster..." notice.

    Now the driver disc that came with the mobo says usb 2.0 driver but it's just a file saying that windows xp sp2 will install usb2.0 drivers but clealry it hasn't....

    any suggestions for getting this running?

    in the device manager right click on the USB and click "update driver" let it "search for the drivers online". restart. done.

    Make sure USB2.0 is enabled in the BIOS. If it's not, or if one of the many nameless jumpers on the motherboard is set incorrectly, it won't work right.
