    Adaptec's USB 2.0 Upgrade Kit provides everything you need to get started with Hi-Speed USB 2.0. It includes a USB 2.0 card (AUA-2000LP) and hub (XHub4), USB 2.0 drivers, and the USBControl Utility. Adaptec's all-in-one solution gets you running at high speed and places ports where you need them most-within easy reach. Included drivers enable USB 2.0 to work on the system software you have installed today: Windows 98SE, Me, or 2000, so you don't have to upgrade system software. It's never been so easy to connect today's fastest external devices like DVD-R drives, scanners, digital cameras, and MP3 players.

    i'm using a 512meg usb stick on my computer with no problems. uninstall the flash driver, restart windows, insert flash drive so windows sees it & asks for driver cd.
