USB 2.0 card questions

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have an old G4 powermac that I want to put a USB 2.0 card in. I have read numerous reports of the computer not waking up from sleep after a new PCI to USB card is installed (this includes the belkin card sold at the apple store!!!).

Does anyone out there know of a mac compatible USB 2.0 card that does not have this problem?

    I'm in the same boat as you. Just tried a OWC card and my Cinema Display will not wake from sleep. Spent time reading through tons of stuff on this that was posted over the last several years and still know nothing for certain. One guy posts something works and another responds it didn't work for him. Looks like we just have to try everything out there and return the ones that do not work. Thanks Apple for switching the iPods to USB 2.0 without offering a really Mac compatible PCI upgrade card.
