im aware that the connection speed will be slower at soemthing like 10 mb/sec but damn thats good enough for me anyways...that can do an entire cd in like 6 seconds...

Yes, the USB 1.1 will be slower than the 2.0, but, as others have said, it should work. I don't think that an entire CD can be transferred in 6 seconds - the 10MB/sec is the maximum transfer speed, not the sustained transfer speed (think of it as like a hurricane, which has gusts of wind that are higher than the average speed). Still, I don't think you'll find it particularly slow, though if you do, USB 2.0 cards are getting less expensive now.

yea i dont think i should have a problem either....even at 5 mb/s i could get


60 mb of mp3s (approximately one album) copied in 12 seconds...thats not bad at all


but your right...i could just get a usb 2.0 card for 10 bucks at compusa and im not computer retarded so i would have no problem installing it


thanks everyone :D
