USB 2.0 Device compatible to USB 1.1 port?

Dear all,
   
    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!

Yes, they are backward compatible.

Most are no problem.  Some devices (like some external DVD burners)
aren't backwards compatible.  It usually will say somewhere on the
box, but not always.

Thanks everyone.  The scanner is a Canon 1250U2F, and there is mention
of compatibility with 1.1.  If not, I can just get my butt into gear &
got out and get a new USB for my tower. :)

I have a new HP 4570C which has a USB 2.0 output and the computer has 1.1.
The system works but at start up it is sensitive to the order of turning
things on. If the order is wrong the HP does not synchronize correctly.

How to force kernel to use a USB 2.0-compatible device (ehci_hcd) as a USB 1.1 device (uhci_hcd)
Hi. I've been using Linux for a long time now (very actively for almost 10 years now), and now I'm stuck with a configuration problem that hopefully should be possible to work around. I have a Linksys WUSB54GP wireless network adapter. It works well under Windows, and even under Linux on my desktop PC (even using it as a USB 2.0 device). But on my laptop it's a different story. To cut a long story short (see http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6374), I'm getting unexpected "USB disconnect" after a few hours (independently of how much the device was used) when...

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.

USB 2.0 device assigned as USB 1.1
I am using RH7.3 (sort of a need so upgrading may be an issue) I have a USB 2.0 PCI card which gets recognized properly. When I plug in a USB 2.0 scanner, the scanner falls back to a USB 1.1 on the card. I cant seem to find anything regarding how to resolve this. I found a similar post (below) - but it was inconclusive. Any suggestions?

laptop usb 1.1 + scanner usb 2.0 + modem ADSL = ?????!!!!!*****
I have a laptop with a single USB 1.1 port. My new scanner (Epson 3170 usb 2.0) works fine with it and so does my ADSL modem but both can't work together. I have tried to make them "cooperate" with a Sitecom Usb pocket hub which needs an external power adapter and of course it doesn't work without it; do you think it would work if I had one? Or is there any other possibility (Pcmcia/usb card for example)? Thank you for your future wise advice. Good chance powered hub will work, but not guaranteed. Is your modem USB only? If ethernet also, as one more option, y...

move ZFS mountpoint from USB 1.1 to USB 2.0 port
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 systems. 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 ...

problem related to backward compatibility of usb 2.0 -> usb 1.1?
Hi, I've recently bought an external harddrive (Q - tec). It's great stuff. The hdd combines lot's of storage space and small dimensions with adequate speed because it runs on usb 2.0. Just plug it in and do whatever you feel like doing. Needless to say, I've grown attached to it. Then bad things started to happen. One night, my PC got fragged (cooked MCU on motherboard). As a result, I was forced to use my dad's computer in order to finish my work for school. It didn't have any usb 2.0 slots, so I had to make due with usb 1.1. I plugged it in, started Wi...

USB 1.1 and USB 2.0

New Printer with USB 2.0 - Old PC with USB 1.1 Ports
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?). Thanks!

Question: USB 1.1 vs. USB 2.0
I know that USB 2.0 is much faster than USB 1.1, but I'm wondering if there is a way to distinguish between the cables for the two. The connectors can look identical; is there some other way of determining if the cable I have is 1.1. or 2.0? Or is there a difference? Thanks for your help.

USB 1 with USB 2 external USB devices?
I notice some hardware (scanners, printers...) are advertised as having USB 2. I have a flat-panel iMac with USB 1. Is it possible to plug in a USB 2 device to one of my USB ports? Would it work (though presumably not as fast as if plugged into a USB 2 port? Alternatively, can the USB 1 be swapped out for a new USB 2 thingy? At all? Easily??? If these are silly questions, my apologies. I'm a non-techie throwback to the old SCSI days, and USB/Firewire leave me bamboozled, but I don't want to buy gear that won't work with my machine (and I don't have the funds to replace t...
