    External harddisk recognised as USB 1.0 instead of usb 2

    I got a toshiba external harddisk, 2+yrs of age.
    Just yesterday, it was recognised as USB 1.0 instead of USB 2.
    I power it down and plug in again, it is then recognised as USB 2.
    I tried in on another pc, same problem and solution.

    Where may the fault lie?

    Usually USB cable/connector contact problems (oxidised), try using some contact cleaner spray to improve contact.

    By what yardstick then does Science hope to use in measuring the Creator of the universe? Think again.
