I wonder about the upgrade of USB ver. 1.1 to ver 2.0 by file download or have to buy the USB adapter card with ver. 2.0. My computer specs. is below:

Pentium 3 Intel 800 Mhz
Windows XP SP-2 operating system
PC 133 512MB memory ram
80GB Hard drive (master)
20GB (slave)
Onboard Sound
CDRW
CDRom

All I know that I have one port for USB at the bottom front of my CPU case. So that is why I am asking to see if I have to buy a better USB 2.0 adapter or can download the upgrade file for version 2.0. Any advice would be appreciated about this.

Thankyou

If it is inbuilt into the motherboard and is new you probobly have it allready but it is a hardware update, worth it, and windows SP1 i know has the drivers for most USB2. PCI Cards are usally preaty cheap to get.

USB 2.0 is new hardware, not just software. If you currently only have USB 1.1, you need to purchase a USB 2.0 PCI card.
