Anybody able to suggest where I can cheaply and swiftly obtain an adaptor or cable to plug a USB 2.0 device into an elderly computer which only has USB 1.1.
I don't want o upgrade the card as it is not my machine - I'm just getting something running for an occasional computer user.
Many thanks

You don't need a special cable or adapter - a normal USB cable will suffice.

The device will always run at USB1 speed however, as you cannot change the speed of the port - you can only get USB2 speeds with a USB2 port - no other way.

Just to make it crystal clear - if the device MUST use a USB2 port, then the ONLY option is to fit one.
