I understand that the word 'enhanced' is a clue to whether or not you have USB 1 or 2.

Here is a snapshop for my Dell Dimension 2400. Can anyone please confirm whether it is USB 2.0 or not.

Universal Serial Bus controllers
Intel(r) 82801DB/DBM USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller - 24CD
Intel(R) 82801DB/DBM USB Universal Host Controller - 24C2
Intel(R) 82801DB/DBM USB Universal Host Controller - 24C4
Intel(R) 82801DB/DBM USB Universal Host Controller - 24C7

If it is a new Dell that you have your ports are most likely to be USB 2.0. USB 1.1 is old slow and pathetic.

USB 2.0 Enhanced Host Controller - You have a USB 2.0 Controller, so yes you will have USB 2.0.

Suggests the 2400 has USB 2.0

Easy way to find out - if you plug in a USB 2.0 device, and you get a bubble in the system bar saying ..."This device can preform faster", you know you have usb 1.0

You have 2.0 because it says "enhanced".
Its a Intel chipset one too.
