    In device manager under USB controllers, if there is entry like USB2 root hub, then you have USB2. In my computer Mobo, such is not shown, but I still have USB2. The answer lies in my mobo setup where there is an option that says - enable USB2 when connected to a USB2 device. This option has to be enabled. Else go for a USB2 card - they are very cheap.

    It is not going to give you the speed of USB-2. Since it is a PCI card PCI speed will be the barrier. Still it should be better than USB-1

    janitha - When I connect a USB2 HDD to my PC I get transfer speeds in excess of 8 MBps (not to be confused with Mbps) which is not possible in a USB1.1 device where the max transfer speed will be theoretically ~1.1 MBps (or 12 Mbps). Theoretical maximums are impossible to achieve in the real world. btw my USB2 is in the mobo & not on a PCI card.
    kalpik - sorry friend, as pointed out by TechGuru#1, USB 2.0 is 480 Mbps.

    Yes, like myself getting 60MBps for my SATA 2 disk in place of the theoretical 300.
