Dtermine USB version

By cruffin ·
How can I determine, or is there a utility to determine, what version USB ports I have on my cloned pc? Other than knowing it's a Tyan motherboard with AMD processor, XP Pro SP1, what info would I need? I attached a 2.0 hub, but when I plugged in a Linksys 2.0 Ehternet card, I was notified it was a 1.1 connection.

Whether U have installed Driver for USB Hub 2.0, for checking this right click My Computer, go to properties -- Hardware -- Device Manager.

If the device manager doesn't give you an indication of what version usb port you have you can download and app called Sandra Lite 2005 from here:

http://www.download.com/3000-2086-10018691.html

It's a trial version but it will give you all the info you need. Sometimes device manager will only tell you that you have usb ports but does not list the types.

Cheers.

If your USB controller is currently installed and working and you are running Microsoft Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, or Windows XP you can determine the type of USB controller currently installed by opening the Universal Serial Bus controllers category in device manager. For example "SiS 7001 PCI to USB Open Host Controller" indicates a computer is using the SiS chipset.

If you are looking for additional information about determining the version of USB your computer has please see document CH000602.

If all the above fail, find the Motherboard part number and check it out on the maker's website. That ought to tell you.

Failing that, if you have a flash drive, try a file copy. USB 2 should give you roughly (very roughly) 128MB per minute copy rate from your hard disk to the flash drive.

USB 1.1 will give you somewhere around 30Mb per minute.

These figures could be a fair bit off but the general speed of copy will give you a pretty good idea.
