Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

External hard drive running slow

I have recently reinstalled Mandrake 10 on my laptop after a hard drive upgrade. Since doing so, my USB2 external hard drive has become very slow - I suspect it is running at USB 1.1 speeds and not USB2.

The "usb-uhci", "usb-ohci" and "ehci-hcd" modules are all loading correctly at bootup.

The only thing I can think I have done differently is last time the PCMCIA USB2 controller was added after installation, whereas this time I left it in (and the hard drive connected to it) during the installation process.

Any help would be most appreciated..
