Find fast USB ports in Windows 7

You may find copying data to your USB drive very slow. This may be due to that you do not connect USB sticker or external storage to enhanced USB   ports, which are normally located near to audio jet.

To find enhanced USB port, click start -> Control Panel->HardWare and Sound->Device Manager under Devices and Printer, click Universal Serial Bus Controller, below is my snapshot:

Enhanced Host controller - IC26 and IC 20 are fast USB ports. Generic USB hub and other USB hubs are slow USB ports.

Also go to my computer, right click your drive and click properties, go to hardware and select your USB drive, click properties and press "Change Settings" button,
Go to Polices tab, select "Better Performance" instead of "Quick mode", and restart computer. But you must safely remove your USB drive. Click Safely Remove Hardware icon Picture of the Safely Remove Hardware icon under right bottom, or click ^ in right bottom of the Windows  to find it, then select eject external USB,
