USB 2.0 printers and USB 1.0/1.1 computers
I need a new printer, being fed up with the POS Epson 740 I have now.
I was considering an HP LaserJet 1012, but noticed it has a USB 2.0
port only. I've got a Rev B iMac with USB 1.0 or maybe (but I doubt
it) USB 1.1. I've searched the 'net to no avail as to whether 2.0
peripherals are backwards-compatible to older USB computers. Since
you all are a well-informed bunch, I figured someone here would know.

I am FINALLY getting around to getting a new printer - but I have a 4
year old laptop that has two USB 1.1 ports. Will a new printer with a
USB 2.0 connection work with my laptop? I heard it will - but will be
slower than designed to be. I am planning on getting another HP
OfficeJet (my old one lasted 7 years!!!!).
Also, can I use a regular USB 1.1 cable? Is there a difference between
USB cables (2.0 different than 1.1?).

Hi all, is this printer USB 1.1 or USB 2??
Everywhere I go to find this out, it only tells me its USB
Which doesnt tell me a hell of a lot lol.
Any info appreciated
From the truly sketchy information on the HP web site, I would have to guess
that the PSC1210 supports USB 1.1 and takes advantage of the higher throughput
of USB 2.0. HP supports the product (drivers, etc) running with Windows 98,
which, for all intents and purposes, knows nothing about USB 2.0... Ben Myers

I'm interested in purchasing a new scanner, but my computer does
not have the newer USB 2.0 ports in the back, only the 1.1 ports. Can
I safely hook up a scanner that has USB 2.0 output? Thanks!

Just ordered a Canon i560 printer; the specs say it has a USB 2.0
interface. I have some USB 1.1 cables floating around; can I use them on
the 2.0 interface? Any signal integrity issues?

I created a mountpoint called /tdusb1 on a USB 1.1 port conncted to a
1TB LaCie hard drive. I discoverd that our system has a USB 2.0 port
and want to move the logical mountpoint to a new physical USB port.
How do I do it?
Actually, I will need to do the same sort of thing from one Solaris 10
system to another in the future. I don't care about plug-and-play and
hot swappable as long as I can read the same drive from different Sun
I assume that there are ZFS related commands for doing this but don't
want to experiment too much as the USB hard drive already has valuable
stuff ...USB 1.1 and USB 2.0
Could I use a win32 function to get the USB port is suport USB 1.1 or
I want to write a program to access the USB devices and show them is in
the USB 1.1 or USB 2.0.
Could everyone help me to find the function call?
Or where I can find any relative information?
Well, removable ms-dos devices such as USBs can be accessed through the
\\\\.\\PhysicalDrive#. Call the API QueryDosDevice(), and get a list of
all existing MS-DOS device names. You can also use the function
DefineDosDevice() to define the device name as well.

Googled this as much as I could, but no luck.
I have a reasonably old Toshiba Satellite 4030CDT notebook. I'd like to
know what kind of USB port it has. The "revision" I think it's called.
You know 1.0, 1.1 or 2.0. I'm sure it's not 2.0 but I'd like to know if
it's 1.1 or 1.0. Does anybody know of a way to tell what revision a USB
port is? Or if not, does anyone know what revision is on a Toshiba

We're working on an embedded device that needs to talk to USB mass
storage devices. We have several processor options, some with
internal USB cores, and some that will require external cores. The OS
will be something simple, and not of the order of an embedded Linux or
Most of the processors have a rich set of I/O pins, so I was
wondering, has anyone tried emulating a USB 1.1 host (or subset) using
just the processor and software (and a jack, the appropriate pull-ups,
etc.)? I'm looking into this on the side, mostly for my own
curiosity. My guess is it can be...how can you tell if you have usb 1.1 or usb 2

Control Panel -> System -> Hardware -> Device Manager.
Then right click on the USB hub(s) and click Properties.
Another way is to plug in a known USB 2.0 device into
the port. The system will pop a warning if the port is

In most cases, USB 2.0 devices will "downshift" to 1.1 speeds. You might

I have the following problem:
I have a linux machine with usb ports. Its a factory machine on which
I cannot do anything (nor soft nor hardware changes).
The linux machine containes all the HP printer drivers. So connecting
an external HP printer thru USB is no problem.
Now I want to connect an other computer instead of a printer, so the
printout could be directly integrated into a Dbase.
I can connect both machines thru a usb/serial adaptor.
BUT the print to external printer only works if a external printer is
