xp + usb 2

  conrail 19:23 06 Nov 2003

os xp, I am considering purchasing a usb2 internal card and although it comes with the software installation disc I have been told that xp already has these drivers installed, can anybody confirm this and if so why weren't usb 2 ports insalled from the start particularly as xp was preinstalled and my system is under 1 year old.

Only Windows XP SP1 has the USB 2 drivers.

Even if you have SP1 you may need the drivers as other postings have highlighted some difficulties in getting the card recognised.

You will have to ask the supplier of your PC why USB2 was not standard on your machine at time of purchase.
