I have a new printer that is supported under USB 2.0 (that came without a cable believe it or not - lol) and a mainboard that has USB 2.0 but only have a 1.1 OR 1.0 cable. 1) will this work and 2) will there be a possibility of data corruption with print jobs down the road.

I haven't much first hand experience with this but everything I have read on the subject suggests the device will run fine on older cables and will fall back to 1.1 spec. Keep us posted if you find different.

Trying to standardize usb cable and usb components is still being worked out, but fully compliant original USB cables will work fine at Hi-Speed USB speeds. Bottom line is, try it and if it works it works.

Works so far. No telling the actual data rate transfer. (Bet it's at 2.0 speed.) Another ploy to sell a $2.50 cable for $30.00 foiled! BTW for anyone in the market for a good printer, I am usung the Epson Stylus C82 and am quite happy with it's performance!
