There could be many answers to your question as you do not say what you want to do. Or your Operating System. Hear goes if you wanted to fit a USB 2 card in a Win98 Computer you would have to get one with drivers and on the box saying that it was compatible if you fitted one in a XP machine I think you would have to download SP1 for it to work. USB 2 will not make a USB 1 scanner work any faster than it would run on a USB1. You also need USB 2 hardware to get the benefit of a USB 2 socket.
Hope that helps explain it
