USB 2.0 device behaiving like 1.0

Does anyone know how to get a USB 2.0 external HD to start working at 2.0 speeds again? I have an external 500GB iomega drive that used to work great at USB 2.0 speeds, now its really slow and when i plug it in the computer says something like "hey this device is a USB 2.0 device so plug it into a USB 2.0 port for full speed" but I have plugged it into the same port my WD 500GB External drive is plugged into (which I know is running at 2.0 speeds) and it still runs at 1.0

is there something I can do to kick this thing in the butt or is it just a dying USB/IDE controller in the drive?

P.S. my PS3 used to see the drive to but now it just ignores it when I plug it directly in
