    My Selphy ES-1 printed fine on my XP laptop. I now have a new Vista laptop and the printer does not seem to work. All the software & drivers seemed to install ok and when I try to print from either Easy Print utility or GIMP the jobs just join the print queue and nothing happens.

Totally unload the driver and software. Then go to printer/faxes - install new printer and when the new hardware prompt comes up - ignore the CD prompt and select from list instead. select Canon select Model- then try come back with the result.

USB2 Problem Windows thinks My card is USB1.1

what do you mean when you say that the 4 USB2 ports are all occupied?
when you say that there are 2 USB1 ports on the back of the case: are those ports connected to the motherboard at all?

what devices are you using to test your USB ports? is it possible that those are USB 1 devices?

USB2 high speed not recognize

Try opening up the device manager and unistall everything in the Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Then reboot and let windows reinstall the USB controllers. Windows should now be able to recognize properly USB2 devices.

XP won't boot with NEC SD-V2-5U USB card installed

Have you tried moving the card to a different slot? The motherboard BIOS and/or the operating system may be trying to assign an interrupt that cannot be shared--especially if you have the card installed in the slot next to the video card (or shared with the onboard video).
