    Default USB converter?

    I bought a CD burner that uses USB 2 but my computer is using USB 1. Where can i buy the converter (is that the name?) and what is the market price?

    thanks.

    Are you using a notebook or PC??
    For the PC it is a PCI USB 2 Card.
    Note that for notebook not all the cards work.. I bought one and realised it can't be used... it's sitting here not being used.. anybody wants to buy?

    last time i bought 1, dunno throw in which corner of the house... same as you, my pc dun have usb2.0 at that time...

    note, it may not work as good as those mobos that come with usb2.0, have signal off occassionally... might be due to using AMD mobos at that time, athlons cpus... intel may not have the problem...

    Your PCMCIA slot is probably a 16-bit slot and will not support those 32-bit USB Cardbus.
