    What kind of card do i need to look for. It isn just a PCI card isnt it? I think that is what the old one was. But the notches on the connectors were in the wrong position so it didnt fit.
    I'd like to find a 3 Firewire and 2 USB 2.0 card.. any suggestions ...thanks

    The PCI card was probably the ancient 5V Standard.

    The G5, like the original G4 XServe switch to requiring 3.3V PCI cards.

    was playing around with some firewire/usb 2 PCI cards.


    has some issues regarding "other" issues relating to these cards.
