    Hello guys! I have this weird problem i cannot find an answer to. I have ASUS M3N78-VM mobo and it has some problems in it. I think my USB ports are not running as fast as they can.

    When starting windows it takes ages to detect my external HDD , Buffalo DriveStation 500gb usb 2, and transferring like 300 mb file from internal HDD to that external is PAIN in the ass SLOW.

    Transferring FROM external to internal it has NO PROBLEMS. Files fly from Buffalo to my internal SATA HDD.

    But if i try to move file from that internal hdd to external Buffalo ,Windows says it takes about 10 minutes to transfer one 300 mb file and it does also take that long..so what a heck..? Im confused. I checked bios and all USB 2 features are on in BIOS. I also had some weird IO shutdown problems. Anyone has any solutions to this? My buffalo also has some turbousb feature but dunno if it works.

    Oh and i use 32 bit XP Pro with SP3 in it.

    BTW my old mobo DFI Lanpary nf3 Ultra-D did not have this problem with my external HDDs. I have also tried all USB ports, and its the same problem.

    I had this problem. You must enable usb legacy features in your bios. Although ironically this allows older USB devices to connect, it fixes the problem effectively for me.

    Download all the latest drivers for your board. If that doesn't help I would recommend that you back up your stuff and install a fresh load. The shutdown issue could be caused by a bad usb device or too much plugged in also.
