I have a Dell computer that does not have a 2.0 USB port- I just purchased a device- forgetting that I do not have a 2.0 port- and now I cant use it. I know there are cards I can buy to put in the computer - but what do i Need to know..... for instance- will any 2.0 port work in my PC or do I need to know all my motherboard specs

Thanks

Have you checked, it should work at 1.1 speed

Check what you can upgrade at the Dell site then source the card from wherever

The comment about sourcing it from wherever is because Dell will probably charge the most for the card

If you make a note of the cards, most computer shops will be able to tell you what other makes will run in your PC
