USB flash working slow


Few days ago changed motherboard. New one supports USB2, what seems to be very good, BUT now there's a problem with flash - it seems like usb flash now works like 3x slower than it was on old motherboard where was no USB2 support. So the question is if there must be something upgraded or reconfigured to get flash card working as fast as it does on windows (on new motherboard works as fast as it was on old motherboard)? flash stick imo has no usb2 support but im not sure about that.
Thanks in advance

your kernel must support usb2.0 and be enabled.

btw
if your still using ubuntu 4.10 (as your settings show), use synaptic to do a complete upgrade to the latest stable of all your packages (and kernel).. the newer ubuntu is incredible compared to the first! at least i thought

it should be fine if you upgrade to the latest stable versions.. this would be the default, if you didnt edit the synaptic download sources..
either way, your going to have to play around with the kernel to get it working if it isnt right now.

try and find info about ubuntu 4.10 on USB2 support.
