Okay I have an old Corsair 1 Gig USB 2.0 flash drive that somehow is not connecting at the faster speed anymore. I have Googled it quite a bit and everyone says check you motherboard drivers, but my other 2 flash drives connect at the faster speeds and don't give the this device can perform faster message. Device manager shows standard enhanced PCI to USB host controllers so I don't believe it's a driver issue. All 3 of my drives are definitely USB 2 but only the oldest one connects at a slower speed giving the message this device can perform faster. So is there a way to get it back to USB 2? Maybe by formatting it?
Also I have tested this using only 1 USB port for all 3 drives AND I have done this on multiple computers with the same results. Any ideas?

Yes. Most probably this is one option I would be looking into after backing up all contained files.

Formatting seems to have resolved it, copied everything back and it took less time than backing it up. And no more this device can perform faster messages, Thanks!
