Trouble using a usb2.0 flashdrive in a usb1.0 port

  1. Hi

    I just bought a new no-name 2Gb usb2.0 flashdrive and I am having trouble copying files onto it using the usb1.0 port on my home computer. The files seem transfer okay, but won't open. Windows Picture and Fax Viewer gives me a 'drawing failed' error message. If I use ACDSee to try and view them only a small strip of the image shows up. BTW I am correctly stopping the device before I remove it from the port.

    However if I use the flashdrive at work, it seems to work perfectly.

    Is this a driver issue on my PC? Should I look at updating the driver?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    How do they do on the USB 2.0 the system was designed for?

    The flashdrive works fine on the pc's at work which have usb2.0 ports. The problem is I need to have the flashdrive work on my usb1.0 port at home. Is there any easy solution?
