    How can I tell whether my USB port is 1.1 or 2.0?

    Look in device manager. If it says "enhanced controller" then its 2.0

    To clarify if anyone else happens to be confused.....

    if it says "enhanced controller" in the usb section of your device manager its 2.0...if not, its 1.0

    So I think I have USB 1. Can I attach a USB 2 CD-ROM device?

    You can attach USB 2.0 devices to USB 1.1 ports, but they obviously will only run at the slower speeds. For a CD-RW drive, you can probably only record at around 4x speeds.
