I am confused as to the USB 2.0 support on my 5660. I just purchased an external USB 2.0 DVD writer. I thought my laptop had 2.0 support. My DVD writing was so slow that I ran some tests and it seems the port speed is only around 13Mbits/second. That is USB 1.1 speed! I did some research on the net and found that there are three types of USB 2.0. Hi-Speed (480Mbits/s), Full-Speed (12Mbits/s) and Low-Speed (1.5Mbits/s). Does my 5660 really have Full Speed USB support? That would really suck! Would it help if I purchase a pcmcia card that adds 2.0 support? Only problem is that there is only one pcmcia slot (already filled with my wireless network card).
