Hi, My computer has USB1 and most things are now USB2, so what do I need to run USB2 things. Like Gadgetstore is trying to sell me a USB2 Hub and card reader, will it work if I just plug it into my USB1 socket, or do I ned some new card inside my computer?

Yes, you need a USB 2 Card. Everything will work on USB1.1 BUT at USB 1.1 speed.

Give the man from gadgetstore a slap from me for the bad advice he/she gave you. :0)

Salinger has the answer.

But if you are Win98 or WinME you will need the USB2 Drivers with the card. othewise it will only work at USB1.1

Thanks for all your answers, I shall go and buy a card from somewhere.
