Subject: RE: Windoze 98se & Slow USB 2.0
From: Touillaud Nicolas (Nicolas.Touillaud_at_fr.thalesgroup.com)
a possible reason for full speed:
some USB2 adaptors can't handle full and high speed at the same time, i.e.
the slower usb device atached set the maximum speed. the problem is hardware
A friend of mine had this problem using the built-in usb controler of its
sony vaio, he just
unplugged the mouse, re-plug it's 2.0 external drive and shazzam ! High
Hope it helps
