PC Help - What USB do i have?

Just wondering how i go about finding out what kind of USB port I have, i.e. 1.1, 2? It's a PC that was bought in Oct. 2002.

Thanks!

You could check in Device Manager, I'm not sure if it's there, but it might be. The best thing to do would be to go to the motherboard or computer manufacturer web site and see if you can find the specs for your model.

It was built to what we wanted, but i have no idea what USB port got put in!

In device manager i have:

USB Root Hub
USB Root Hub
USB Root Hub
VIA Rev 5 or Later USB Universal Host Controller
VIA Rev 5 or Later USB Universal Host Controller
VIA Rev 5 or Later USB Universal Host Controller

Thanks!

Do you have some high speed transfer device like a usb hard drive?

You can tell just by looking at the transfer speed, there is a significant difference between 1 and 2.

To transfer a 700 meg file, it takes forever on 1, but 2 takes less a minute.

do u have the manual for the PC (motherboard manuel)

well say in ther

but most likely if it wasnt a used PC its USB 2.0

What OS are you running? If you plug a USB2 device into a USB1 port on Win XP (and maybe Win 2k), it'll say you have a USB2 device plugged into a USB1 port and that this will effect the performance.

Also, if you go to the device manager, expand the USB (Universal Serial Bus) section, if it says "Enhanced" in there, then it should be USB2
