It's generally accepted that 'poor quality' cables (specifically those
outside of the USB specification) can not handle USB2.0 . Generally such
cables can comfortable handle USB1.1 speeds, just not the faster USB2.0 data
I don't think a USB2 cable is 'special', it just meets the USB
specification. I've certainly heard talk of Windows detecting a USB2.0
device as a USB1.1 device when used with a 'poor qualtity' cable, and
detecting it as a USB2.0 device when used with a better quality cable. I
believe that includes using iRiver H1xx series devices with retractable
cables as below.
