    Ok i have a usb 2.0 hard drive and usb 2.0 cd burner. i have a usb 2.0 cardbus with 4 port. My problem is when i connect my external hard drive into usb 2.0 cardbus it transfer file slower than usb 1.1. Many times it crashes my computer. Mu cd burner never starts to burns anything when i attemp to burn something. It starts as if it's going to burn but it just dosnt start burning.

    Version 2002

    Intel Pentium lll processor
    600 MHz
    256 MB of RAM
    40 Gb. internal hard drive.

    Hi Jay

    Just a thought -

    1. Does your mobo support USB 2.0 (not many do as yet)?

    2. Have you downloaded the USB 2.0 drivers from MS?

    Does the cable support USB 2.0? Is it perhaps too long?

    Probably not since I guess you got the cable with the burner but what the hey. :)
