Hi, I am thinking about buying a Digital SLR camera and in the spec. it says USB2 in/out connection. My old laptop only has USB1. Does anybody know if the camera will still work on the laptop ? (I've tried installing a USB2 PCIMIA card but not sure its working properly.) Any help appreciated.
The camera as Mr Mistoffelees has said will transfer data quite happily if a little slower with only USB1. Where you would really notice the slowness would be if you were connecting an external USB drive and tranferring whole folders of data.
Buy the camera, have fun and perhaps treat yourself to a USB 2 conversion some time in the future.
Your point about your PCIMIA card. Did you see it install? You can check in device manager > hardware and see if there is a reference to USB 2 in the section Universal Serial Bus Controllers . If there is then it is functioning.
