USB 2.0 card slow to transfer files - help please

    I have an on board USB 1.1 on my computer so I brought a USB 2.0 PCI
    card so that I could transfer music files to a iPod (portable music
    player). I'm finding at times that the files are very slow to transfer
    to the iPod and at times there are delays partway through transferring
    a song which causes a timeout problem.
    I'd welcome any suggestions to help solve this problem.
    The USB card is made by NEC and sold by Dick Smith.

    I've tried disabling the on board USB 1.1 equipment.
    I've shut down any programs running in the background.
    I've reinstalled the driver for the card.
    I'm using Windows XP with SP2.

    Regards Brian

    If you don't see an EHCI entry it would imply that the USB2 driver has
    not been properly installed. This may give you a clue as to how to
