How to Upgrade a USB to Make it Retrieve Data Faster

You can upgrade your USB drivers to make the port transfer data faster.
USB ports allow computers to connect to USB devices such as mice, keyboards, media players and portable storage devices. If you have a computer that has USB 2.0 support and at least Windows XP Service Pack 1 installed, you can upgrade the drivers on your USB 2.0 ports. USB ports with the newest drivers will transfer data between connected devices and the computer faster.
