    Hey guys,

    I have two different PCI cards usb 2.0 cards, one that specifically supports osx on the box, and none of them seem to be able to read my ipod. They are detected in system profiler, and work perfectly when I plug in a usb mouse or printer into them, but when i try to use a hi-speed device like an ipod or flash drive, they don't read the device. Are there OSX drivers i need? The cards are by sabrent and macsense, respectively. The macsense card says that it supports mac osx on the box

    I just installed leopard, but the problem was prevalent when I had tiger as well.

    Interesting. Did the cards come with any drivers?

    I am using an Adaptec card with the G4 in my sig and I get USB 2.0 speeds.
