Asus CUV4X-E mainboard.
You're running into a hardware limitation as this board/chipset only has USB1.1 controller hardware. You need to buy an USB2.0 controller card for a PCI slot (if you have one free), they shouldn't cost that much.

I know it's frustrating if you need to transfer several hundred MiB of Data with USB1.1 speed.
