How do I find out what version my USB is?

The USB ports on my PC are named USB – Hi Speed.

An old Pen drive I bought in 2009 does not work with this port.

Is it because the Pen Drive supports a different version of USB?

How do I find out, and what can I do to make my old Pen compatible with my PC?

For Windows XP users:

  • At first click on start button which is located at the bottom corner in your desktop or laptop.

If your PC is new, it should support both old and new pen drive.

How do mean by it does not work?

Does the PC read it or not?

Have you tried plugging it on other PC's?

Or have you tried plugging in other Pen drives to your PC?

Your Pen drive could be damaged.
