Hi - I've bought a Belkin Hi-Speed notebook card USB2 [F5U222] as my laptop only has USB1.
I've installed it, and as I have XP SP1, according to the manual, I don't need to install the driver separately.
It is working - but in the manual it says that the device manager should show an entry called "USB 2.0 Root Hub Device". Well mine doesn't - so I thought I should perhaps install the driver manually. So I did a 'system restore' to before the first go at installing the card and tried to install the driver from the cd-rom without the card being in place as directed. Doing this generates an error message, "this programme needs to close" and I have also tried to download the driver from the Belkin website with the same effect.
The USB2 card seems to be working - but how can I tell whether I have just installed two more USB1.1s?!
As Salinger has said my PC says Enhanced and that means USB 2. Personally I've always thought that was a bit confusing and it would be better if it actually said USB 2 but there you are. I wondered for a while whether I had USB 1 or 2 until I read on this Forum about Enhanced meaning USB 2.
yes - its says enhanced. I know it sounds a bit pedantic, but I am using the external HDD to stream over WAV files to Ableton Live and I need to know that it is working correctly before I tweak the other settings to get best performance.
Thanks again for your help.
