What is your operating system - Windows XP should provide the necessary drivers.

You may have to Enable USB2.0 in the Bios first (and also perhaps the number of USB2.0 ports that are/will be available).

A quick way to find out if your system is USB2.0 Enabled is to look in Device Manager and note if the word Enhanced is listed alongside some of USB controllers.

While the Computer is turned off remove the wall plug then hold the start button down on the computer for about 30 seconds. then see if it works OK. Also it may say that it will work faster in USB2 but it just may be a error in the detection as I have it on one of my computers but it working at USB 2 as it's a Hard drive, And you soon see the Difference if it's only usb 1.1 If it a Printer sor such forget it you will not see any speed difference with that type of hardware. You only need it if you are moving big files like Photo Video or using a External USB drive
