Hey, cool! It looks like Microsoft finally released driver support for USB 2.0 on Windows XP. (Note: that’s a link to a Google Groups posting pointing to Intel’s version of the installer. I just gave Windows Update a whirl, though, and it’s available there, as well; it’s the “Microsoft Usb Driver Version 5.1.2600.0.” You’d think that they’d put some acknowledgement that it supports USB 2.0, wouldn’t you?)


Of course, I keep forgetting to mention that I rolled back from this driver, since it totally fuckered USB 1.1 support on my Siig dual Firewire/USB 2.0 board. Really — the card no longer supported USB 1.1 with this driver installed.

Siig told me that they didn’t see this as a problem, and couldn’t figure out how to uninstall the driver; I ended up figuring that one out on my own.
