    The Control Panel's Device Manager says the USB on my Compaq Presario
    5000T is Intel 82801BA/BAM. I tried searching this with Google but can't
    find the matching USB version number. I wish to purchase a USB flash
    memory storage unit but need to know the USB version to be sure it's

    Can anyone help, or give me a place to reasearch? I tried Intel.

    Unless it is 18 months old or less, it's 1.1.

    Isnt 2.0 backwards compatible with 1.1? So it shouldnt matter which version
    you buy, unless you want to save some money and buy an older 1.1-only stick
    which might be cheaper.

    The following URL tells you what is inside the system:

    In summary, the system is a Pentium III-class, so it's USB is only 1.1. There
    are USB flash memory units which are USB 1.1 compatible, and some that aren't.
    I have an older Sandisk USB flash reader/writer which handles compact flash
    cards, and it works just fine with my older notebook computer... Ben Myers
