Question about Audio Players & Recorders
USB 2.0 is the latest development of the USB technology. It is nearly identical to its predecessor, USB 1.1, except for one significant difference: speed. USB 1.1 supports a maximum throughput of 12Mbps (equivalent to 1.5MBps), whereas USB 2.0 supports throughput of 480Mbps (which is equivalent to 60MBps). The fast transmission speeds of USB 2.0 make it the ideal technology for channeling data from digital cameras, storage drives, scanners, and other external components that need to communicate a lot of information to a PC.
Win98, Win98 SE, WinMe, Win2000, and WinXP all have native support for USB 1.1. The later versions of Win95 support USB 1.1, although many users of the OS report problems with its USB capabilities. WinNT does not support USB. Your computer must have two things to support USB 2.0 technology: a USB 2.0-compliant port and the Windows XP OS (operating system). Microsoft plans to add support for USB 2.0 to Windows 2000, but it has no such plans for Windows Me or Windows 98 SE.
As a general rule, many of the computers sold in 2002 (or later) will support USB 2.0; most of the computers sold in 2001 or earlier will not. The best way to determine whether your PC has a USB 2.0-compliant port is to read the documentation that came with your computer. If your PC has such a port, the documentation will clearly say so.
Another place to look is in the Device Manager. You can access it in WinXP by opening the Start menu, right-clicking the My Computer icon, and selecting Properties. In the resulting dialog box, select the Hardware tab and click the Device Manager button. In Win98 SE and WinMe, simply right-click the My Computer icon on the Desktop, select Properties from the pop-up menu, and click the Device Manager tab in the resulting dialog box. Either way, when the Device Manager appears on-screen, double-click its Universal Serial Bus Controllers heading. If you see a listing for USB 2.0 Root Hub, you know your PC supports USB 2.0. (Please note, however, that your computer may support USB 2.0 even if this listing does not appear in the Device Manager.)
