Re: First experience of iRiver H-140
Well, since USB 2.0 is (theoretical maximum) 24 times as fast as 1.1, the
cables need to be better at some things (perhaps shielding or so). Just
like you need qualified cables if you want Gbit networking.
Neon John says he thinks most USB 1.1 cables are already good enough
though. I myself have no experience with different cables.
