Any plug-in card will do - but they don't supply drivers for WinXP - because WinXP has drivers - but you must use SP1.

I really think you must address your SP1 issues, as there are many vital updates in it - and it needs to be used as a base for further updates, including many security issue updates.

I've never had a problem with SP1, on many systems. though for new systems now SP1a is alraedy in the CD supplied.

hi dieSse...thanks for your comments.i have spoken to other people about the sp1 issue,they have experienced the same problems.you would of thought that microsoft would have made it possible to select what updates you wanted.they must be aware of the issues caused by certain updates.i think the only option is to buy anew pc nest year with usb2.cheers
best regards mimo

Can you please say what problems you are having with SP1 - as millions of people aren't having problems.

If you can tell us what they are, someone may be able to help you.
