USB2 gear on a USB1 PC ??

hi, If a PC is USB1 will things like a dvd recorder which is USB2 work? My son wants to get the freecom classic 16x dvd recorder but it says USB2......thank you

Thats fine it will work OK the main difference is speed - not that you would notice particularly.

Did you intend this link for Ikelos?

the freecom was almost written off, it says on their website it is fro win2000 and xp, but that link says win98, which he has, so when he gets home I will past it on..........

Sorry it's just a review that says it will work on USB 1.1 although a bit slower and works with Windows98SE onwards.
