How can I tell whether my USB port is 1.1 or 2.0?

Look in device manager. If it says "enhanced controller" then its 2.0
I'm not sure I understand that answer.
Oh never mind, I got it.
To clarify if anyone else happens to be confused.....

if it says "enhanced controller" in the usb section of your device manager its 2.0...if not, its 1.0
So I think I have USB 1. Can I attach a USB 2 CD-ROM device?
You can attach USB 2.0 devices to USB 1.1 ports, but they obviously will only run at the slower speeds. For a CD-RW drive, you can probably only record at around 4x speeds.
