As smurffy say more specifics would be nice.

When you bought the card it should have come with a CD with the required drivers on. Follow the installation instructions and it should work on the next restart.

I had to install a USB2.0 card when the wife bought a Gen5 Video iPod, had no trouble. The comp is a PowerMac G4 DP500MHz.

Sorry, typed that trying to remember as much as I could.
Trying to install on a dp 450.
So the card is a macsense UP-400 card. Says its supports OS X. Instructions tell me first install apples usb adapter card extension version 1.2 or higher.

Only thing I could find was usb card support 1.4.1 and it tries to install in os9. It also doesn't show up under device volumes, says it is empty.

Any ideas?
