How do I know if I have USB 2.0 on my PC?

June 24, 2006

When you look at a USB 1.1 and 2.0 connection, they look EXACTLY the same!

  1. Open Device Manager.
  2. On Universal Serial Bus controllers click the + sign
  3. look for an entry called "Enhanced USB Controller"

If you can see this entry then you have USB 2.0 !

NOTE:

Data transfer speeds of

  • USB 1.1  = 12 Mbits/second [1.5MB/s]
  • USB 2.0  = 480 Mbits/second [60MB/s]
