This device can run faster...USB problem

Hello,

Since a couple of weeks a get the message "this device can run faster" when I plug a external HD or USB stick in the USB ports of my laptop.
Its not only a warning, the transfer speed is also a lot slower as it used to be...
Now, cannot recal when it started exactly and if I did something special...
My laptop is an ASUS UL 80V running on windows 7 64bit.
If tried updating the intel chipset drivers, no help....
Then I replaced the internal HD with an SSD HD and made a complete fresh Windosw 7 install just to find out that my problem still exists.
Again updated my intel ICH9 chipset drivers but without result...so it does not look like a software problem? Anybody an idea/solution?

I was getting that message after SP1, not sure if that applies to you as well.

I just uninstalled the usb drivers and when windows reinstalled them, the problem was gone.

Have you checked the settings in the BIOS?

Well, that's all I have. Sorry.

If you could fill in your System Specs,

System Info - See Your System Specs

I'm sure it will help those with other ideas.

As I know, the latest USB devices (USB3) can transfer at a rate of 5 Gbit/s whereas USB2 does it at 480 Mbit/s and USB1.1 does it at 12 Mbit/s . If your USB port is a older one, a latest USB device will pop this message up .

It could be caused by the following.... If an external hdd is removed incorrectly, the next time it connects, the latency caused by a sort of file check can cause the system to think it is a lower usb speed than it should be. Try a checkdisk on such a hdd, it will take a long time.... When finished, correctly remove. Next time you plug in, it shoul be back to normal speed.

Did you try to set on Write Caching (Better Performance) - in Device Manager > Properties of the device > Policies.
