    Get your USB devices out of low gear


    By Fred Langa

    USB 3.0 data transfers should be up to 10 times faster than USB 2.0 and 2.0 should be almost 10 times faster than USB 1.0. But many factors can cause your USB connections to limp along at a fraction of their expected speeds. Here's how to check your USB system's performance to verify that it's running at its full speed and what to do if it's not.

    USBTreeView

    If you don't want to have to surf through Microsoft's archives to find it, the USB TreeView software can also be downloaded from the developer's website at www.uwe-sieber.de/english

    I have a Win 7 64 bit desktop computer, with USB 2 & 3 ports on the front of the case. If I plug a USB 3 in a USB 2 slot on the front, Windows tells me to put the drive in a 3 slot for better performance, so I know that there is some communication with Windows.

    So I downloaded the debugging tools, and after putting a USB 3 drive in a slot, ran USBView.exe. The screen that opens shows some USB hubs that I have connected to the back of my computer, and a floppy drive that is also connected there, but no USB drive attached to a port on the front of the computer. I tried refreshing USBView, changing the drive to a different slot, etc. Never recognized.

    Any idea what the problem might be?
