Hi all
I have just ordered a mp3 player for my lad with usb 2 connection, however my pc only has usb 1 sockets, will i still be able to transfer music to it, or will i have to upgrade to usb2?

Thanks Phil

USB 1 and 2 are backward compatible, yes

It will work OK but slower

Without going into any technical detail, USB is broken up into three speed groups;
Low Speed USB1(1.5Mbps), Full Speed USB1.1 (12Mbps), and Hi-Speed USB2 (480Mbps)
