you plug in a usb2 device and if it is only a usb1 socket you are told this would work faster if plugged into a usb2 socket. This happens with xp sp2 not sure for other systems.

Go to Dexice Manager, Scroll Down until you come to USB controller if ther is a line USB 2.0 enhanced you know that you have USB 2.0 installed.

Hi, I don't think the "2" appears, just the word "enhanced" - if enhanced is mentioned then yes, it is usb2.
