Hi,

There might be man options :-

1. if your laptop has a PCMCIA slot you can buy a USB 2.0 PCMCIA adaptor.

2. You can purchase one USB 2.0 PC card ( from sites like ebay etc) with four ports. This lets you swap it around from laptop to laptop, depending upon which one might happen to need it at any given time (for backups to external HD, camera downloads, etc.). For most other purposes, like moving stuff to and from flash drives, it's really ok with the old 1.1 port. The only disadvantage of this solution is that the card is so large that it doesn't allow simultaneous use of a wifi card. The solution to this problem was to buy a USB-WiFi card. This was a bit steep, but we only needed one of them -- just for whichever PC happened to be using the USB 2 adapter.


Thanks.

Recently, when I insert a USB flash drive into my laptop's USB port, I get the message: This USB device can perform faster if you connect it to a HI-SPEED USB 2.0 port.


Your laptop has USB1 port and the USB 2 message will appear if you plug an USB 2 device into this USB port.
You maybe able to upgrade the USB port to USB 2 if there is a BIOS upgrade available from the laptop manufacturer's WEB site.
If not you maybe able to get an USB 2 PCMCIA card to install into the PCMCAI slot on your laptop.

Can my designer 1 be updated to use a cd and a usb port.


In one word: No. Sorry. It can be updated to a USB port, but the port will only accept Husqvarna formatted USB sticks, not an external CD drive. This is not to say you have to purchase Husqvarna USB sticks as well as pay for the USB upgrade - it will take any USB sticks, they just have to be formatted with the Husqvarna software which comes with the upgrade.

Upgrade from SB 1.1 to USB 2.0


You'll have to add an expansion card. The motherboard indicated has PCI expansion slots. You can install a 4-port USB 2.0 expansion card. You can find them at local electronics retailers including Wal-Mart and Radioshack. Or, you can get online at places like www.newegg.com.

I have a Western Digital Passport that works fine


Western Digital Passports work perfectly on USB ports 2.0 that supplies 5v of electricity with a max of 500mA. If your computer was manufactured more than 5 years ago, it may be using the USB 1.1 which is slower than the current.

Need to upgrade my usb ports to 2.0 for my laptop


Sorry to say that there is no way to upgrade usb 1.1 ports to usb 2 as it is related to the chipset connected to them. Windows service packs do not help in this case where it is hardware to be changed. Try looking for a PCMIA card that has usb 2 ports on.

UPGRADING USB 1.1 TO USB 2


I searched and found a 1/2 height PCI card with 2 USB ports, plus a internal connector for two more ports. My little NetVista will not hold a full-height PCI card. Get out your tin snips.
Works like a charm !
FYI: I disabled the BIOS USB support for the old ports, and plugged the old MB cable into the new PCI card. I now have two 2.0 ports on the front, and two 2.0 ports on the back. However, I lost the ability to boot from USB

Can't upgrade the USB ports to Version 2.0


Hi cogilbert,
I had a similar problem with my PC which had older version 1 USB. I purchased a USB 2 PCI card with USB Hub, installed and problem solved. It really not a very expensive proposition. The card comes with the necessary software and drivers. It works great.
