Hi again, after extensively searching I believe your Laptop has a USB version 2.0.
Most PC's manufactured before 2001 were USB 1.0 and USB 1.1.
The Spec Guides for your PC indicate 2002 was the year of manufacture.
USB 2.0 is a faster USB connection than version 1.0 or 1.1. You might have trouble connecting devices that are USB 2.0 (which all new devices are now - since 2001).
To double check, use your Device Manager on the PC to look up the USB device and see what is written.
If you are using XP then do the following:
- Click Start
- Click Settings
- Click Control Panel
- In the Control Panel double-click the Systems icon.
- In the System Properties window click the Hardware tab.
- In the Hardware tab click the Device Manager button and you will see a list of devices.
- Click the + button next to the word the Universal Serial Bus controllers.
If it is USB 2.0 then it should say something like USB Enhanced or USB High Speed, this means it is USB 2.0 compatible.
I hope this helps. Please rate. Regards,
