Probably a stupid question but my Medion PC has a number of USB ports. How can I tell wjich standard of USB they are (i.e. USB 1.1, USB 2.0 etc) ?

Click control panel, click system click hardware, click device manager , scoll down to USB Controllers and it should show you what you have.

Usb 2 should show in device manager as an "enhanced" host controller.

If it's a recent system the odds are it will be USB 2.0, which is fully backwards compatible with 1 and 1.1.

Thanks guys

It looks like its not USB2 so I feel an upgrade coming on (well it is 2.5 yrs old).
