I have bought the creative jukebox zen the USB 2.0 version. how can I find out if I have USB 1.1 or 2.0 . If its 1.1 then how can I transfer or change it to 2.0?

Thanks

If you have 1.1 then you'd need a USB2 PCI card installed to get USB2 - about £20.

How to find the version - not sure?

Check your motherbaord manual to see what is supported. Should say if it's usb2.

TRu Control panel/system Then look for the USB section. It will often state which type of USB the MB supports

I have a USB 2 ZEN and if you have a USB 1.1 you will get a small bubble from your task bar when you connect up telling you that you don't have USB 2 and your transfer may be slowed down. In practise it doesn't make much difference as I find it still only takes about 4 mins to rip a 70 min CD on mine using a USB 1.1 conection.

You've bought it so plug it in. I have a mem card reader usb2. I plu it in my desktop usb2,.. fine. I plug it in my older laptop usb1,...then a screen notice says it detects usb1 and it may run slower. Runs fine. I don't notice if it is slower.
May not be so for your application, of course, but worth a try.

USB 2 makes little noticeable difference unless you are editing videos.....but then you would be using firewire.... There is a lot of hype and baloney talked about USB2. In practice a lot depends on the 'operating speed' of the item attached to it and there is no way USB2 will affect this. I use USB2 devices on USB1 and 2 enabled computers and I cannot really tell the difference in data transfer.
