I'm have some trouble with my usb ports at home and I can't find any info on the net about it. I hope someone who reads this message can help me out.

I've recently been experimenting with flashdrives. However I hit a problem with sloooow write rates on my home computer. I know it's strange because they operate fine on my work computer. Let me tell you some stats:

2 Flash drives: one is usb 1.1 and the other is usb 2.0.

Work Computer: Dell computer, win2000, usb 1.1
Home computer: custom built AMD machine(gigabyte mb 7dxr), winXP, built in usb port is 1.1, usb pci card is 2.0.

Speed Rates:

Work computer: (note: both flashdrives)
Read = ~800kb/sec
Write = ~500kb/sec

Home - usb 1.1 port: (note, both drives)
Read = ~800kb/sec
Write = ~133kb/sec
usb 2.0: 1.1 flashdrive has same rate as when plugged into 1.1 ports
2.0 flashdrive:
Read = ~2100kb/sec
Write = ~133kb/sec

As you can see there's a huge problem with the write rate on the home computer. I've tried updating drivers, reinstalling usb ports, changing cache setting, using different flashdrives, sacrificing small animals and nothing seems to work.

Anyone encounter this problem before or have any suggestions?
