Upgrade USB 1.1 to 2.0 on Dell PE2600

By KMOmozar ·
I have an external HDD that I want to use as backup on my Dell PE2600 running Server 2003. Problem is the PE2600 come with 2 USB 1.1. Can anyone advise me buying a compatible USB 2.0 PCI card?

Might be simple, might not

If your server has the appropriate BIOS to support USB 2.0, all you'll need is the plugin card and the software drivers. However, if the BIOS is that old, it might not support the upgrade and would require a newer unit to make use of the USB 2.0 devices.
