USB upgrade

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
What software update would be necessary after installing a USB 2.0 board. I'm installing it in a G4, circa 2001. The bigger question, can you upgrade at all???/

    Are you sure that you have drivers for that PCI card? If you don't have drivers then you are probably out of luck. If you have drivers installed (or they are already included in the OS), then there would be nothing more to do. My bet is that there are no drivers available, but that is purely a guess.

    Kinda depends on the card. Lots of folks have installed USB 2.0 cards on old G4s without issue, whereas some chipsets seem to induce sleep and kernel problems.
