I just bought a a MyBook Essential external hard drive for my Fujitsu Stylistic Tablet PC. Unfortunately, the new hard drive supports USB 2.0 and I have 3 USB 1.1 ports (which are too slow) and 1 firewire. How do I upgrade to usb 2.0 on the docking station? The only reason I'm choosing to go the USB 2.0 route is so I dont have to return my new hdd and purchase a new one, and so I can use the ports for my iPod as well. Thanks for your help everyone!

I know of no way to upgrade USB 1.1 to USB 2.0, the are different hardware. The docking station doesn't have any USB hardware, it just provides connections to the machine.

If this machine has a PCMCIA slot, you can use a USB 2.0 PCMCIA board.

As was already said, there's no way to upgrade it without adding a PCMCIA card. On a side note, there's no reason to return the drive unless you're trying to get a FireWire model (which, in this case, is what I'd suggest). USB 2.0 devices work on 1.1 ports.

I agree, the Firewire is probably the way to go, since you already have the capability.
