    Check the Device Manager if you are running Windows - it will say USB 2.0 explicitly. I believe XP (and maybe 2000) support natively USB 2.0.

    Do you know the manufacture and model of your motherboard, or if not when did you buy your computer? If you know the manufacture and model you can check their website but USB 2.0 has not been around for very long so if your computer is close to a year old or older then you can almost guarantee yourself that you dont have it.
