    I think you can get USB 2.0 drivers for it, don't ask me where though cuz I don't know. ;)

    Uhh, getting USB 2.0 drivers for a USB 1.1 port wont make into a USB 2.0 port.

    Personally, I haven't heard of any upgrade that would allow u to do it to an imac flat panel. You can still use USB 2.0 devices tho, just very slowly:rolleyes: .

    You can't get an adaptor that makes a low speed port into a high one. I can't get an adaptor to attach scsi to USb and hope that it will work at full SCSI speed. No, it will work at USB speed.

    USB 2 is a backwards compatible connection, so a USB 2 product should be able to plug into a USB 1 port without a problem (I haven't seen a USB 2 connection, I'm basing that on what I've heard), and you'll get USB 1 speeds. There is absolutely no way to add USB 2 to any iMac out there since USB 2 is a hardware protocal and adaptors can't make a slow speed connection fast.
