Is there a way to determine whether I have USB1 or USB2 ports? The Laptop is about 2-1/2 years old, and the manufacturer's site (HP) doesn't discuss the subject. Thanks for any information.

Hah. You have USB2.0, only, if it's really USB1.1, it's "USB2.0 Full Speed", and if it's really USB2.0, it's "USB2.0 High Speed". The people who make the USB standard are criminals.

I would guess that you have USB1.1, you can probably add a USB2.0 PCMCIA card though.

Look in Device Manager for something like USB2 Enhanced Host or USB 2.0 Root Hub under Universal Serial Bus Controllers.. The laptop manufacturer's web site almost certainly has specs or a manual you can download that would tell you as well. If USB 2.0 is specifically mentioned in that info, then the ports are 1.1.

Under USB Controllers in Device Manager, you should see a USB2 Enhanced Host Controller if you have USB 2 capability.

Thanks. That one answered my question (I found no USB2 Enhanced Host Controller in Device Manager).
