    Are you using both USB 2.0 cables and USB 2.0 compliant devices?

    What are you hooking up to the USB card?

    2.0 cables?!?!? No idea... how do I check?

    Am running a SanDisk thumb drive (off of my USB Hub) most recently.

    I think that we have found the problem. If I understand you correctly, you installed a PCI USB card in your PC. You also purchased a USB 2.0 Hub for more USB ports. Your computer as USB ports on the front but they may or may not be USB 2.0 ports.

    If the ports on the front of your PC aren’t USB 2.0, then you won’t get the USB 2.0 speed even though you have a 2.0 card installed in the PC.

    If you aren’t getting USB 2.0 speeds out of the hub and the hub is actually connected to the USB 2.0 PCI card, then you have a problem.

    If the USB hub is not USB 2.0, you won’t get USB 2.0 speeds from it. This applies even if the hub is connected to teh USB 2.0 card installed in the PC.

    If the USB 2.0 Hub is installed on the front ports of your PC and the front ports are not 2.0, then you won’t get the 2.0 speeds?

    Got all of that?

    Try this. Plug the thumb drive directly into the newly installed USB 2.0 ports.

    Are you sure that your thumb drive is USB 2.0?

    What OS are you running?

    There is no such thing as a USB 2.0 cable. Only companies who would like you to think there are so they can charge you more.
