USB 1 with USB 2 external USB devices?
I notice some hardware (scanners, printers...) are advertised as having
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
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

We were kicking around some ideas today for low-performance embedded systems
for quick and dirty solutions to simple tasks. We often throw a BasicX
controller (http://www.basicx.com/) at such problems, which is fine until
we need to communicate with the user; adding keypads, LCD displays, etc. is
a bit of a PITA.
So we started talking USB microcontrollers. Once you have a USB port, using
USB keyboards, mice, 10-key keypads, etc. for input is a no brainer, but what
of the display? A quick web search didn't turn up any obvious candidates.
Then someone came up with the idea of using a U...Ethernet over usb possible between usb host and usb client?
Is it possible to create a tcp/ip link over usb where one side is client and
the other is host? I have usb-ethernet support in my kernel and can bring
up the host usb device with ifconfig but not the client.

Hi, I'll show my ignorance and ask:
Do USB devices work seamlessly on Macs and PCs (with USB ports)?
Do USB mouses and USB keyboards just plug into a 800MHz 12in iBook?
(You'll see elsewhere I'm looking for a .pdf manual so I will then know
what the various "plug-holes" - ports? - are for.)
I've just got this machine and find the trackpad fiddly, similarly for
the keyboard, so I was going to plug in the keyboard and mouse to
overcome these concerns.
Can I plug in a pair of speakers (again are USB speakers universal to
Mac and PC)?

looking at device connection using usb
> looking at device connection using usb
The SGI320 is too old for USB2. It has USB1 ports, which are not fully
compatible with all USB devices...
Better get an USB or USB2 PCI card...
thanks, come to think of it the fact it doesn't mention specification
of usb port indicates early version

Serial to serial is possible and there is a special cable for this. Not
sure how to order it from HP though. USB to USB is not possible - this
is a limitation of the USB standard.
Eng...USB to serial converter working ? and USB hubs attached to usb-serial converter
I have seen some references in the newgroups where people have shelled
out some money for USB to rs-232 adapters/converters in order for their
serial sensors (gps, other...) to be connected to the newly set of
laptops that have no longer serial nor parallel outputs. Can any of you
share his/her experience with a particularly bad piece of hardware and
the type of the sensors it did not work with ?
My own interest is to connect not one sensor, but two using the serial
output (i.e. I have two sensors needing rs-232 output) I also have only

I have a pc and a laptop.
I know for sure that my laptop has usb2,
but I don't really know if my pc has usb2.
When I go to 'Device Manager' on my laptop or pc, I see nothing that tells
me it's usb2. So I can't really know.
Is there a way (a tool or so) to detect if I have usb2 on my pc?
I already tried AIDA, but I can't find it.

Is it true that one MUST use ONLY the EXACT USB charger that comes
with their cell phone? Are USB chargers really not interchangable?
The T-Mobile store told me I could only use their T-Mobile charger for
my new USB based cellphone. After showing me the charger for the
Motorola V195 which is 5.9 volts 375ma, they then opened a desk drawer
and handed me three melted USB chargers, one at 5.0 volts, 750ma;
another at 5.0 volts, 550 ma, and yet another at 5.2 volts 450 ma.
Can we swap these supposedly USB chargers or not?
