An old computer, has no USB2.
So USB1 is running, it is slow, of course.
Is this a hardware or a software property? I guess if hardware, it can't be changed. but if software, can a old Pentium3 laptop running XP be updated to run at USB2 speed?
Reason for my question is only one: I want to speed up backups to a USB2 harddrive which is USB1 and 2 compatible and the computer always says 'you can run faster on USB2' - not an exact quote, but that's the idea.
The laptop is a Compaq Evo.
