    Hi all,

    I want to add a USB 2.0 card to my G4 desktop (1ghz, OS 10.2.4)
    I found one manufacturer (Iogeer) that says my system needs 10.0.3 so I am up to that OS with that, Belkin say I need 10.2.7 for theirs. Does anyone have any experience upgrading their mac g4 with this os? I now only have USB 1.1.
    I want USB 2.0 so i can use Usb harddrives that are always cheaper than ones with firewire,
    Of course, I could upgrade my OS to meet required specs.
    Thanks,

    Mark/boston terrier

    bump.
    basicly the same question, what cards are compatable and is there a speed difference compared to built in?

    When it comes to drives, stick to Firewire.

    Get a MacAlly PHR-100AC or AF case, and put in the raw 3.5" IDE drive of your choice.
