How do I determine if I have USB 1.1 or USB 2.0?
What is the difference?
How do I obtain 2.0 if better?

To find out which version you have, open the Device Manager by right-clicking My Computer and choosing Properties . Click the Hardware tab and then click the Device Manager. Scroll down until you locate the Universal Serial Bus controllers and expand the list of controllers, by clicking the + sign if one is present. If you have a USB 2.0 controller in your computer, the word Enhanced will be listed somewhere in one of those names.

If you don't have USB 2.0 you can add and upgrade to USB 2.0, quite easily, by installing a USB 2.0 PCI card to the computer.

The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life.
