Can you tell by looking at a USB plug whether it is USB1 or USB2?
I wouldn't of thought so as I was under the imprsseion the numbers just referred to the speed.
no, there is only 1 type of connector for USB. The speed that it runs at is determined by the software. You can check whether it is USb 1 or 2 via Device manager.
No. The connectors are identical.If you want to see if you have USB2 look in Device Manager - it will be shown as 'Enhanced'.
Sorry, no difference in plugs or cables. Items usualy marked USB 2 or USB 2.1 if they are, otherwise assume they are USB 1.USB 1 will work with USB 2 and USB 2 will work with USB 1. However a USB 2 HDD running on uSB 1 will work like a slug, I know from experience.
Thanks everyone, I always thought that there must also be a difference in the connectors, as i thought I had seen connectors for sale described as USB1 and also USB2.Thats cleared that up then.
