    Memory sticks and USB standards

    This must be such a trivial question for those who know but I don't so...

    I'm looking to get a memory stick to use with two computers. One has USB2.0 and the other only USB1.1.

    If I get a USB2.0 stick will I have any problem reading it with the slower machine (other than slower transfer times)?

    You will have no problems at all. I have a Sony 2.0 USB stick and have yet to plug it into a USB 2.0 connection. It works like a charm.

    nope I do it my self and they work fine minus the slower speed.. I'm wondering if you can boot from them.

    Yes you can PH...in fact if you go to memorykeytools.newavenue.net you'll find instructions on how to do that.
