Specs: Windows XP
My comp is pentium III 933 hz. My usb port is ver 1.0. Due to no new product of usb stick ver 1.0 in the market anymore, I want to upgrade my usb port ver 1.0 to ver 2.0. Are there any effective and cheaper way to do this upgrade? Thanks a lot...friends....

First of all, USB 2.0 devices SHOULD run at USB 1.1 speeds when connected to a slower port.

That said, your only method to get USB 2.0 speeds out of your rig would be to install an add in card. Below are some examples. Newegg.com is an excellent vendor.


Before buying, check the reviews for the selected product. You also need to verify you have an available PCI slot to install the card into.

You also need to have at least SP1 installed. You should have SP3 by now.
