eMac (ATI GRAPHICS) USB 1.1 - upgrade to USB 2.0

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
I have an eMac (ATI GRAPHICS) with USB 1.1 but am trying to find a way to upgrade it to USB 2.0 somehow.

I've seen products like Ministack and such which amoung other things, act as USB 2.0 and IEEE 1394a (firewire) hubs.

Can you plug one of those into a Firewire 400 port on the eMac and then use the USB 2.0 ports on the external device (hub) and have it use the firewire to translate to USB 2.0?

If this doesn't work, is there any work around?

    :-( , awe... well I guess that's not big deal. If I get anything external, I'll just use firewire400.

    Thanks for the info.
