Hi.

I have a spare Logilink PC0054A USB 3.0 PCI-E card (which didn't worked in my MacPro), I wonder if it will work in the G5.
For sure as a USB 2.0 card.

It has a NEC D720202 chip on it.

Has one a 3.0 card running in the G5 as 2.0 card?

Fairly sure that if it doesn't work on Mac Pros, it lacks Mac drivers, or needs them installed. Did it come with a driver disc, and if so, does it have Mac drivers? You can always try it on the G5, nothing can go wrong except for the card not being detected.

Well, I've put in the the G5, it doesn't work even as a 2.0 card.
Found some LaCie drivers for 10.5 but the kext is only Intel.

Hoped it could run at least as 2.0.

Anyway, I will throw it away, I have no purpose for it.

Why don't you just donate it to someone who could use it rather then throw it away?

Yes, I mean not really to throw it away, but to sell it or spend it to someone.
