Compatibility between USB 2.o and USB
To my knowledge, there is no difference between a USB 1 CABLE and a USB 2.0 cable except marketing hype. I have used both with no difference. However, if you computer port is USB 1.0 and not 2.0 your device will either not run at all or if you are lucky will run but at the slower USB 1.0 speed. The cable will make no difference as they are wired exactly the same. For example if you plug in a jump drive directly to the port (no cable) it will usually run but a message will come up telling you you are not getting the full speed of the device because you did not plug it in to a USB 2.0 compliant port. So the real issue is the Port version you already have, not the cable.
