Not quite. uhci and ohci are both just different ways of accessing USB 1.0 and 1.1 controllers. uhci is used for controllers from Intel and Via, while ohci is used for just about all other controllers. USB 1.0 and USB 1.1 both support 1.5Mbit/sec (Low Speed) and 12Mbit/sec (Full Speed) > ehci is 2.0 devices specs of 480Mbit/sec > > > Seeing various PCs boot and during the probe, typically I see 1 ehci, and > multiple uhci and ohci devices. A normal USB controller chip will provide one or more UHCI or OHCI (but never both) interfaces for handling Low and Full Speed devices and one EHCI interface for handling Hi-Speed (480Mbit/sec) devices. If you have several USB controllers in your computer you can indeed see both uhci and ohci devices as well as several ehci devices. > > > Your Toshiba External USB HDD must have 2.0 speeds to be able to transfer at > that speed... hooking a 2.0 device into a 1.x port will either cause port > shutdown, or a backwards compatible downstep for the device in terms of > speed. > > > Hope this explanation helps. > > --TJ > _______________________________________________ > email@example.com mailing list > http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions > To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org" -- <Insert your favourite quote here.> Erik Trulsson ertr1...@student.uu.se _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
