The following error message appeared on my desktop:

"HI-SPEED USB Device Attached to non Hi-Speed Hub

The USB CompositeDevice is a HI-SPEED USB device and will
function at reduced speed when plugged into a non-HI-SPEED
port.

The hubs shown in bold type have free ports that can support
the HI-SPEED USB device.

Recommendation: Disconnect the USB Composite Device from its
current port and then connect it to one of the ports on a bub
shown in bold type."

I have no idea what this means or what to do about it!

That computer you have, has USB 1.1 Ports, whereas the device is a USB 2.0 device. The USB spec has been around for a while and USB 2.0 is the latest and is roughly 40x faster than the old spec. If it's a desktop computer, you can get a USB 2.0 card that installs inside the computer in a PCI slot that will give you USB 2.0 ports so you won't get that message. Typically plugging a "fast" device is a "slow" port will cause it to, guess what, run slower. For some devices like Hard Drives, it's not too big of a deal, again keeping in mind that it will run somewhat slow, but other devices may not function well at all. Depends on the device. As a frame of reference, the USB 2.0 cards run about $20.

Actually, it sounds like you have USB 1.0 and 2.0. Do what it says. Pull out the device and plug it into different slots until you find one that doesn't show you this message.

Is there a way to verify what slot is 1.0 and what slot is 2.0 in the control panel or device manager

You can look at the "Location" under General Properties in the Device Manager if you know which listing is which. To determine that, you have to look at the device name or perhaps driver details and compare those to known 1.0/2.0 info (use google).

Of course, you could always disable one under Device Manager and see which one stops working. That's what I would do.
