Default Usb 2.0?

Is there any way I can test the speed of my USB ports? I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 which is supposed to have 2 USB 2.0 ports but I'm only betting UBS 1.1 speeds when using my USB thumb drive even though the drive is certified for USB 2.0.

Well thumb drives, from what Ive seen, didnt really gain that much from the switch to USB2.

If Dell says theyre USB2, theyre USB2.

But, if youre really in need of reassurance, check the system information. It should tell you the type and speed of your I/O ports.

I know XP needs a USB 2.0 update that is downloadable on their site. I'd check there first.
