|OtheHill: Same as you: 2002-06-01, 5.1.2600.0.|
Tubesandwires: There is an option to set HiSpeed or Fullspeed mode in the BIOS, according to the manual. I'll check that tomorrow along with the transfer mode of the device (DMA or PIO)... that can be checked / applies despite the USB enclosure, right?
I've tried plugging it into a back port (albeit I didn't unplug the printer, which was off, and the graphics tablet), and it made no difference. I didn't try all of them.
The cable came with the enclosure, if I recall correctly. The box specified "USB 2.0" specifically, and I think it specified "Hi-speed" but I can't recall. I can't find the box. The enclosure has a "USB 2.0" sticker near the USB A female port.
If it's any help, the cable has the following printed: "[odd symbol] AWM E89980-A SUNF PU STYLE 2725 80°C 30V VW-1 28AWG/1P 24AWG/2C USB 2.0 CABLE TID 60000103".
I'm going to try my printer cable too, which I bought separately—it's been three years, I can't recall the brand or anything, but the connectors are gold-plated if that tells you anything.
As for the motherboard ports, the manual states the following:
"7. USB 2.0 ports 3 and 4. These two 4-pin Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports are available for connecting USB 2.0 devices.
"8. USB 2.0 ports 1 and 2. These two 4-pin Universal Serial Bus (USB) ports are available for connecting USB 2.0 devices."
I'll post tomorrow with results.
