USB2 to USB 1

  andy@ 15:28 11 Aug 03

Does anyone know if I would I be able to plug a "USB 2" digital camera connection straight into my PC's USB 1 port, or would an adaptor be rquired?

USB 2 is USB1.1 backward compatible so it will work fine.

It will however be much slower and if for soime reason the camera needed to transfer at HUGE speeds you may find USB 1.1 impractical.

It will, however, work fine.

Thanks, I have a feeling the PC is USB 1.0, would this still be OK?

You can plug any USB2 device into USB1 but it will only work at USB1. If you want it to work at USB2 then buy a PCI/USB2 card.

Hopefully the camera does not absolutely require USB2 speed connection to function. I can cope with USB 1 slower transfer, as long as it works. I was going to get a Sony DSC-P72.
