    OK computer guru's, here's my problem. I installed a Dynex USB 2.0 PCI card in my computer, but it only seems to be working at the slower USB 1.X speed. Is there something I'm missing here? I've read that you can have the older 1.X and newer 2.0 living together in harmony on your system, so I don't think that is my issue. I can't find any newer drivers than the ones XP installed. I'm out of ideas.

    There is a link on Dynex's site for drivers for their 4 port card.

    4-Port USB 2.0 PCI Desktop Card

    Just curious, but what brand & model is your computer, and do you know anything about the motherboard?

    I found the problem, it was with my testing method. It turns out my new HP digital camera is only USB 2.0 "compatable", and doesn't actually run at those speeds.:rolleyes: I found I can put the SD card into a reader and it transfers really fast, but hooking the camera up to the computer only yeilds USB 1.1 speeds. Those sneaky buggers at HP got me with the way they list the product specs. :O
