USB Upgrade

I want to upgrade the USB drivers on my ML350 G3 Proliant Server to USB 2.0. Can anyone recommend a specific driver?

Re: USB Upgrade

The USB drivers won't make a difference if the G3 server has older 1.1 hardware. If you install a USB20 card, that would be the simplest way to go USB20, if the windows drivers for the card will match the system OS you are running. This is not usually a problem for a current USB card.

Re: USB Upgrade

You should buy a brandname PCI slot card, say Belkin, IOGear, Zonet, one that has a chipset that will be added in windows drivers by default. Otherwise you may have to add usb drivers for the card. I am pretty sure that your G3 will have a few PCI slots open. The card should cost less that $50.
