    Most DVD burners will be compatible with USB 1.0/1.1

    Sorry, misread your question. It's not possible to convert 1.0 to 2.0 because otherwise you would need to replace the actual USB port.

    As TM no you cant covert USB1.0/1.1 to USB2.0.

    The only way would be to get a PCMCIA USB2.0 card.

    The DVD Burner might work, but of course it will be going at a slower speed, and could cause some errors.

    No, i was saying if you use USB1.0/1.1 you could get more errors then running off USB2.0, due to the slow speed.

    I would recommand that if ur going to get an external burner, is that you buy the PCMCIA USB2.0 Card.
