Default Hi-Speed USB Host Controller

Hi, I have a Dell Dimension 8300 , it has 8 USB ports. When I plug in my Sony DSC-150 camera in I get this message,
High speed USB device pluged in to a non hi speed USB hub.

I must add a High Speed USB host controller.

First what is a high speed usb host controller, is that the actual ports themselves................?

Second, this computer is only 1 1/2 years old you would think that all the usb ports would be high speed.

Any thoughts on this......Thanks Dan

high speed is usb 2.0, and since it's a dell, i wouldn't expect anything above and beyond, try plugging it into rear usb slots, if that doesn't work, you're going to need a pci usb controller, this seems to be a good one:

It is hard to believe that Dell would only put USB 1.1 in that PC right? Not really, considering that they have made millions of that same configuration. A few dollars saved on each machine, that translates into millions of dollars extra profit in the long run.

Mass production has it's drawbacks for the end consumer sometimes

That PC should have some USB 2.0 ports in the back panel though. If not, the USB PCI card listed above is a cheap solution to your problem, and very easy to install.
