Jaco> Just to clarify, no USB is is *not* upwards compatible, it is *backwards* compatible in that a newer controller/device can "fall back" to the slower speed and still talk to an older device (at the older device's speed). The USB2 device slows from 480Mbps to 12Mbps (USB1.1) to suit the *older* device - in this case the A9Home.
