    Im using an iMac G4 and my usb ports on the side are broken. I need to use the usb ports, so I am wondering if anyone makes a USB Hub that can plug into my lone firewire port on my computer. My AppleCare expired 8 months ago and im just trying to save a buck or two! thanks!

    1. There are two FireWire ports on the iMac G4.
    2. You can't convert FireWire to USB and vice versa
    3. How are you using a wired keyboard on this Mac if you are?

    I meant to say an iBook G4. That should explain some stuff. Any ideas?

    That makes a lot more sense now.

    Nothing short of replacing the logic board will fix the USB ports if they're both dead.

    What kind of price would that cost? Where should I go?
