I'm new here! Alot of great info! My question is i have an external DVD-Rom drive (16X Read only) that i want to use to rip dvd's onto my hard drive but it is veeery slow ripping it. I get the following message when i turn on the external drive "THIS USB DEVICE CAN PERFORM FASTER IF YOU CONNECT IT TO A HIGH-SPEED USB 2.0 PORT. FOR A LIST OF AVIALABLE PORTS, CLICK HERE" But the thing is is ALL my USB ports are the high speed USB 2.0 ports. Now i just don't understand why i get this message. Please help. Thanks!
