USB2 - USB1.1 compatibility?

am trying to connect an external HDD to my PC and have a USB2 cable, but only have USB1.1 ports.

OS is WinXP Pro, Win2K, WinME (on different machines!) and all get the same problem.

when i plug in the USB cable, it detectes the device, but in system properties it says that it cannot start the device?

can't be the USB ports as it does the same on all 3 OS's...

could it be a case of USB2 not working on 1.1????

USB 2 should work fine with 1.1, but at the slower speed

Possibly the USB HDD is faulty, has it ever worked or has it recently stopped working?

it's brand new, straight out of the box!

Where did you buy it? Can you take it back and get a replacement?

guess not then...
