Usb Port and external HD

Postby markus62 on Fri Aug 07, 2009 5:32 pm

Hi
I noticed a very long transfer time between my notebook with Gloria and an external hd drive trough usb door, more then 38 min for 400 mb!
Maybe usb doors are recognized as 1.1?
how can i do??
Tks!!!!

Hi,
Open a terminal and type lsusb , then hit enter.

Do you have 2.0 ports?

Correct me if I'm mistaken but BUS 001 is usb 2.0, Bus 002 looks like it is 1.1 ???

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 056e:0050 Elecom Co., Ltd
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub


You may just have to find out which usb port is bus 001 on your machine.

I'm now lost too ! . . . the only other thing I can think to try is to search Google with " YourExternalHD_Model + Ubuntu "
