Which PCMCIA USB 2.0 Card for G4 PowerBook?

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang,

 

I have several USB 2.0 external Hard Drives and I would like to be able to use them at full speed on my 15" 1.25gHz PowerBook. The only way I see doing that is by using a PCMCIA USB 2.0 card. So my question to ya'll is which ones have you had success with? I several that "support" Mac OS X but I would like to be sure before I buy anything.

 

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

 

Thanks!

According to Apple your PowerBook has two USB 2.0 ports, a cheaper way would be to get a hub to add extra ports. I always prefer powered ones although you don't have to get one that needs an AC adapter.

>EEK< Indeed I do. For some reason I thought they were USB 1.1 because I have a USB 2.0 external drive that seems to max out at around 12MB's a second. I'm going to check to see if I need a driver for the drive. Thanks for the quick reply!
