Click here to be annoyed

It is, indeed, not at all unreasonable to expect an automated system which knows what you did wrong and how to fix it to fix it for you, rather than to just officiously tell you to try again.

On the other hand, if an automated system that knows how something can be done better, yet also knows that you cannot do it better in your current situation, it should avoid encouraging false hope.

USB dumbness

Others have pointed this piece of genius out before, but I think it bears repeating.

    Yep, hate that one.

    Even worse, I DO have USB2 ports - Windows just refuses (most of the time) to acknowledge that.

    I put it down to my el-cheapo motherboard, but I can't prove that. Santa, you listening?

    Been there, everytime I used my Friends cheap computer XP told me that my flash drive could do better, When I clicked it gave me an error that there ARE NO USB 2.0 ports on this computer. Hooray technology!

    I have the wonderful experience of plugging things into USB 2.0 ports, having Windows tell me they "could perform better" and providing me with a list of my 6 USB 2.0 ports - no matter which one I've plugged the device into.
    Gets frustrating when I've got a lot of stuff to transfer and things plod along at 1MB/s.
