    I have two of them and sinc mine is an older computer. they are 1.0 (maybe 1.1 if there is suc a thing) I'm also starting to have problems with my sound card, so I plan to reolace that soon, and I was wondering if it's possible to upgrade theu USB at the same time (See! I didn't get off topic)? Of course, if the USB are on the motherboard, that ends that. I had planned to get a new PC about now, which would have solved both issues, but the IRS found an error in my 2002 return, so that's trashed my PC fund. Anyway, can I do anything about these ports?

    You can't do much about the USB you have now, because it is like you say about the motherboard. However, you can buy a USB 2 PCI card and install that to get USB 2. They also have cards for firewire and ones that hav both USB @ and firewire.
