I put a new USB2 card into my PC and seems to work. From other threads I can see I got a USB Enhanced Controller in device Manager. How can I tell it is actually transmitting at 400M and not 12M of USB1.1?

What OS and have you installed drivers? if not a XP computer

I am using Me and installed drivers provided. The port works with a scanner and printer, but I just wondered if there was a way I could find out if itwas transmitting at USB2 speeds or USB1. My scanner is USB2 so it shoudl do it. Any easy way to tell if it actually is. Other threads describe poeple buying USB cartds but find they only work at USB1.

If a USB2 device is only working at 12mbs (USB! speed) an error mesage appears that says something like:

this device can perform faster if plugged into a Hispeed port for a list of ports click here.

I don't get any error messages and it appears to scan faster than it did so I guess it really isworking at USB2.0 speeds and by lcuk I have avoided problems others have had.
