Will new hardware work?

My pc has just the normal usb socket[1.1?] If I bought a new printer/scanner/copier with high speed 2.0 cable would it work ok and achieve the top speed or will it still go at the old speed or will it work at all. Running xp pro 256 mem. Thanks 2cv6.

At best it will work at USB 1 speed. At worst it will not work.

You could buy and fit a USB2 PCI card - just over £12 from ebuyer click here

Sorry, just under £7 (6.60)

Hi, yes it will work, but only at the 'old' speed. As suggested a pci usb2 card would do the trick. Cheers
