Hi, I have an old Dell Dimension 8100 from around 1999. I recently purchased an external hd without realising the usb ports on my pc are 1.0, so its really slow when transfering. Is there a way to get round it? I dont have any pci slots spare.
A further thought to this is to buy (if that`s an option) a USB 2 PCI card, remove the USB 1 card from your PC and install the USB 2 card. If you still have USB 1 equipment don`t worry because USB 2 is backward compatible. Hope I`m not wrong but from what I understand USB 2 is very much faster than USB 1. Happy New Year.
