Hey guys, does anyone know if it's possible to take a USB board from one computer and simply install into another without the need for the software? I was wondering if I haven't got a disc, the hardware will look for it online?

Depending on how old it is, chances are Windows will look for drivers automatically in the Microsoft database if not already part of the OS.

Is this a USB 3.0 card?

Actually, I'll probably just use a USB hub, I've got a couple of them knocking around.

I managed to find my hub which I have now installed and seems to be working just fine
