Howdy,

A quick USB question, I was looking in my systems specs (Via SiSOftware Sandra), and I noticed my USB Driver version was reported as Version 1.10. What does this mean? I am unfamiliar with what versions mean in USB, and just want to make sure I am getting the USB 2.0 that I my board (Asus P4C800) specifies.

Thanks,
Dave

USB 1.1 has a 12mbit maximum transfer rate, USB 2.0 has a 480mbit maximum transfer rate. Obviously USB 2.0 is the more desirable one. :D

Hmm, not good. Then why does ASUS say the P4C800 comes with USB 2.0, but the Version reported by Sandra is Version 1.10? Is there anything I can do?

I noticed that while the version says 1.10 the Speed says 48Mhz. I would assume that means 2.0 speed?

Thanks,
Dave

I don't know anything about that MB, but there's a simple way to check. Open Device Manager, and expand the USB controller section. If the Root Hub has USB 2.0 or Enhanced in the description, it's USB 2.0
