What is your computer make & model?
1. Open your desktop computer case to see if you have any empty PCI expansion slots. Do you have an empty one?
2. Purchase a USB 2.0 PCI card for the empty PCI slot. Make sure the card says ''USB 2.0'' and not ''USB 1.1''
Staples, CompUSA, CircuitCity, BestBuy, RadioShack, and Wal-Mart have them. Lots of them online, too.

If this is for a notebook computer, then you can purchase a PC CARD (PCMCIA) adapter with USB 2.0 ports.
Today I bought a Sony external DVD drive. It looks the system up whenever plugged in to rear USB. After some research, I realize my USB are 1.1 ports.
Error message says "There are no High-Speed host controllers installed on this computer - you must add a Hi-Speed USB host controller to this computer."
So - if I go to Staples or Comp USA tomorrow, exactly what do I ask for? Is there some sort of Hi Speed 2.0 adapter I can just plug in to the back of my system?
