Question about Computers & Internet
You may need a 2.0 USB cable. Read on:
The cables will most definitely look the same. That's because the connectors didn't change between USB 1.1 and 2.0.
But not all cables that look the same are the same.
A higher quality 1.1 cable stands a better chance of working at 2.0 speeds. What do I mean by quality? Well, it's nothing that's visible, I'm afraid. It has to do with the quality of the wires used and especially the shielding against electrical interference. Higher speeds are more susceptible to interference and noise - either from the outside, or from the USB signals themselves.
I also say in "typical" usage, because not all scenarios are the same either. For example a short cable is more likely to work than a long one. If you have an electrically noisy environment that might cause problems.
And of course the devices themselves play a big role. Some devices are more tolerant of weak or noisy signals than other. Purchase a 2.0 USB cable, it is not expensive.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
