Not enough information to be sure.

If the computer is more than 9 months old it is certianly USB 1

If this is a name brand PC, you should be able to verify the specifications at the mfgs web site.

Otherwise, you can check the motherboard manufacture for details on the USB specifications.

If the specs say USB, you can pretty much assume USB 1.
Most mfgs will make it clear if they installed USB 2

If you can add acomment with your PC or motherboard make and model, we can verify thespecs for you.

I would say that since it's a PIII you almost certainly have USB. USB2 is a very new technology and probably is only used with P4 and Athlon XP+ class motherboards. It's possible there are others, but I am not aware of any. Check with your hardware manufacturer to be certain...but I'd think if you had USB2, it would be on a very new system and be well advertised/documented.

Good luck...

Tend to agree. A P3 would be a certainty for USB and unlikely to have USB2. Possible you could fit a USB2 card in it.
