I'm trying to connect my Panasonic Video Camera using the USB but am struggling. It seems as though my hardware or software does not support USB 2.0.

How can I determine if my hardware is USB 2.0 compatible.

I have Windows XP Pro SP2 installed.

Thanks in advance.

Read the FAQ here for detailed instructions on how to tell if your USB ports are 2.0.

Open Device Manager and check USB host controller list.  USB 2.0 controllers are usually listed as Enhanced PCI to USB Host Controller.

Check times.  Your post hadn't shown up when I started my response.  I don't re-invent the wheel unnecessarily here.

Sorry, I thought the time was further apart.  My bad.

If it isn't 2.x compliant, you can get a PCI USB 2 card for a song, assuming you have a PCI slot open.  Try outpost.com or newegg.com.

I have read that link before posting the question but was still unsure.

My device Manager lists a "ALi PCI to USB Open Host Controller".

Does this mean it is capable of doing USB 2.0 and I maybe just need a driver update?

Based on age of notebook (about a 2002 vintage model) and Device Manager information, I believe that you do not have USB 2.0.  

That being the case, a PC card adapter would be the only real option for adding USB 2.0 support.

Did you get a PC card adapter, and did that take care of problem?
