purchase external usb2.0 as it is Interchangeable with USB 1.0, and can be used for the future if your OS does not support.


In the device manager scroll down untill you see the universal serial bus controllers and on the plus open up.You should see if there is any Usb 2.root hub devices there.

Try opening Device Manager and looking under "Universal Serial Bus controllers". If you have an entry like "Intel(r) 82801DB/DBM USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller" you have at least one USB 2.0 port. If you have an entry like "Intel(r) 82801DB/DBM USB Enhanced Host Controller", you have at least one USB 1.1 port.
