My brother has a computer with usb1.1. He wants to buy a usb 2.0 cdrw. He can not buy an internal model or a pci usb 2.0 as he has a guarantee and can't open the case. I know you can buy external usb 2.0's but how are they connected to the pc. Cheers.

External USB ports are expensive (50 squid) and as the player will be backwards compatible there is not much point. The benefits of USB 2 are really only noticed if video-editing. The USB port can only run as fast as the hardware and scanners/printers are not best known for legging it rapido. Tell him to stick the writer into a USB1 port and he will not notice any diference.

ps it may be better to connect it to one of the internal USB ports rather than a 4/5/6 port extension.
