By laurashreeve1 ·
I need to buy more memory for my dell laptop, is it ok to buy an external hard drive that is specific for USB 2.0 even though mine is only USB 1? i can't find hard drives that are not for usb 2.
thanks

You will get a pop up that says you have connected a USB 2.0 device to a 1.0 click here for information, or some thing like that. The drive will just be slow on the 1.0 but should still work.
Did you try flashing the BIOS? Some drives and other devices come with a CD with the 2.0 driver on it.
