    How can you tell if your PC has USB 2.0?

    Could you post some specs on your system for someone to take a look - particularly your Motherboard make / model.

    Also what Win OS are you using ?

    This isn't for me, it's for our company president. I was just wondering if there was someplace I could tell him to look on his system to see if he has it. He's looking at getting an ipod, and that requires USB 2.0 for it to work. I have looked in the device manager and didn't find anything within the USB listings. Would I have to check the BIOS? One of my co workers told me the PC would have to be manufacturers after Dec 2001.... true? It's definitely a PC he's using, most likely W2k.

    Read this about USB 2.0

    As you can get a lot of information about any pc system - components, drivers, installed software etc - just see Screen shots at the above link to get an idea.

    However if you can get the Motherboard details - a quick search here :

    http://www.google.com

    Would get a you what you need.

    If you look at the USB entries in Device Manager, you need to see the word "Enhanced" or "USB 2.0". If either of those are present, it's a USB 2.0 controller.
