Default Hi-Speed USB device plugged into non-hi-speed usb port hub

Is there a way to fix this problem?
My motherboard is Asus P5P800 and I am using Windows XP Pro with no service packs.

Is there a way to fix this problem other than getting SP1 (or higher)?

I know it's not as fast. I want to fix the "problem" so that it will be using a Hi-speed port, and will be much faster.

It takes more than 10 minutes for a 1GB file. REALLY SLOW. 480Mbps > 12 Mbps xD

the service packs are probably the only solution. check the driver disc that came with your pc though

err i though this is called 'i am plugging a USB2 device into a USB1.1 port' it isnt a problem, it will just run slower.... the only way to fix it is to put it into a USB2 port.
