I am looking for a cheap fix for right now. I'm going to dump about $2k into a new system this summer, but for right now I need to get past this small hurdle.
On my PC for whatever reason, when I connect my MP3 player to it(be it a Sansa E260 or a Creative Zen) it "doesn't recognize the device".
Now, these are regular devices that don't even have drives out for them. I suspect my motherboard just for whatever reason won't support USB2.0.
Its weird too, I have a USB Hub off my one of my 6 onboard USB ports, and I my Digital Camera, and joysticks all work fine...but I don't think they require USB2.0.
SO, can I just get a USB controller card for a PCI slot? Will that allow me to take advantage of USB2.0 devices(such as my mp3 Players which I cant even transfer songs off of right now)? I would imagine that running on the PCI bus on its own drivers should segregate it from the USB bus...just not sure anymore
I'm doing a complete upgrade in about 3 months, 2Gigs of RAM, new PCI-E video card, new mobo and CPU and all the goodies.
