I have an older computer that I know does not have a High Speed USB port, i.e. only 1.1, but how can I tell if any of them are a high power USB port. I recently purchased a new cell phone that I want to connect to my PC ( a motorazor), but the razor needs a high power USB connection (or so the manual says). My OS is XP SP2. I don't actually have the cable to connect the cell, I want to make sure it will work before I go out and buy one. Thanks.

It should still work just at slower rates.

After some headaches, and some Windows troubleshooting tips, my cell phone connects to my computer just fine.

Glade to hear it works, it's never easy to get these up and going it seems. Always the smallest things sets it off and it won't work, but when they work, it's the greatest thing in the world. :whistling:

Indeed, it wasnt until Windows suggested I unplug the phone, turn it off, turn it back on, and reconnect that it decided to work. And my computer's USB cable must have enough power because it will indeed charge my phone also.
