I might also mention that some readers that are USB 2.0 hi-speed do NOT
work on USB 1.1 interfaces. Let the buyer beware!

nonsense. usb 2 hi speed readers will work fine on a usb 1.1
interface, but at a slower speed (obviously).

Nope, Ron's right. I have a USB 2.0 reader right here (works fine on my
PC) that will NOT work on my laptop, which is XP but USB 1.1. I've seen
this happen with other readers as well.

Yea, they're *supposed* to work. Don't always tho.

I know of no USB2.0 device that won't work with a USB1.1
interface on a computer.

On the other hand the maximum sized memory card that can
be used varies greatly from reader to reader, and so
does the speed that different readers actually work at.

It also just happens that in my exerience the less
expensive readers are more likely to not work with
larger memory cards and are more like to have slower i/o
speed than the the more costly ones. I don't know if
that is true across the board, but it is for every
example that I've tested.

If that is true then they are not USB2.0 compliant because that standard
implies backward compatibility with USB1.x.
==> return to dealer because defective
