Can I Add USB 2.0 to a slot-loading iMac?

    Hi, i recently souped up an old slot-loading snow imac for my girlfriend to use. It's a 500mhz (i think) G3 with 768MB RAM running 10.4.2. I also just picked up a nano for her which of course only syncs with usb 2.0, which i don't have. is there something out there that will let me do this, like a firewire to usb 2.0 converter? what are my options?

    thanks in advance.

    You sure that it WON'T work with USB 1.1? Usually it works...only VERY slowly.

    You're out of luck chap.

    Damn Apple for not letting the Nano allow FireWire!

    You best bet is to allow her to use your music/photos on your puter.

    Oh, right, i know i can sync with usb 1.1 but... she's not exactly the patient type! what a bummer, guess she's going back to hogging my powerbook.
