Hi there,

How do you tell if your desktop has a 1.1 or 2.0 USB connection?

If i have a 1.1 connection, is it just a case of updating the drivers to make it a 2.0? or does it involve buying new hardware?

Many Thanks

it involves new hardware in the form of a PCI USB 2.0 Card. However before you go that far how old is the motherboard. if it is realtively new (1 or 2 years) then it should have USB 2.0 already. Now remember it is not necessarily how long youhave had the system but whent he Motherboard was manufactured. You can buy brand new that is several years old. Post your motherboard or if a major manufacturer system the sytem model and we can help you find out.

Hi there, i ran "belarc" which showed my 'Main Circuit board' to be:

Board: Dell Computer Corp. 0G1548 A00
Serial Number: ..CN7082135TJ00P.
Bus Clock: 400 megahertz
BIOS: Dell Computer Corporation A05 12/02/2003

does this help?

You dont have to worry you have usb2.0 already. a better program as far I am concerned is Everest Home. You can do a search on that and download it for free. It tells you a lot more about your system.
