This morning my new computer notified me it had downloaded an update and rebooted. When I plugged in my tablet, the computer notified me that my device was USB 2.0 and and could run faster if I plugged it into a USB 2.0 port. Trouble is, I had used this port many times in the past as a 2.0 port, no problem. I confirmed the slower rate by trying to transfer my podcasts over to the tablet like I normally do.
The ports in question are the ones on my front panel. I plugged the tablet into one of the rear ports that are mounted directly on the MB and got 2.0 speed no problem. On a whim, I plugged my wireless mouse/keyboard receiver into one of the front ports. It worked, but would be intermittently choppy. I tried downloading the latest MB drivers from Gigabyte, and that didn't seem to help. I saw that there was a problem similar to this for some win7 users about a year ago that supposedly got fixed. I checked and the fix has already been applied. Anybody have any ideas? Thank you.

Some usb storage devices are recognized generic by windows as slower usually on flash drives and memory cards9reader) on phones and tablets. Usually rebooting and replugging things will get it back to normal operation. I found this link just in case.
