I have an older computer and most of the usb ports are 1.1 but when I checked my device manager it listed one 2.0 port. It gave me this location:
PCI bus 0, device 29, function 7. How do I find out which port is the 2.0 port?

I have the same problem. I have tried to find the 2.0 ports by trial and error with my card reader, I keep getting the message to use a 2.0 port for faster transfers. I have tried all usb outlet sockets but all seem to be 1.0 but my computer tells me there are several 2.0 ports! How do you access them?

Thanks. Yeah, I read that before I came here to post. Just didn't get my answers there.

sailinshu, you say that you have an old computer. How old is it? Maybe it doesn't really have USB 2.0 ports. What OS are you running and what does it say in Device Manager that makes you think there are USB 2.0 ports? Have you checked the specs for the system from the manufacturer? It might talk about USB ports. Or, you could get the motherboard's make and model with a tool such as CPU-Z, then see if it has USB 2.0 hardware.

If you need help, post the model numbers and we can look it up with you.
