Question about IOGear Cardbus Card GPU202 Serial Adapter
I have a mac powerbook g4 15" 1.0 Ghz running tiger 10.4.11. It has very slow usb 1.0 and I purchased the IO Gear GPU 202 cardbus so I could run USB 2.0.
When I went to download the iogear drivers from their website, they only had drivers for OSX 10.1 and 10.2. I downloaded the 10.2 hoping it would be reverse compatible.
When I plug in the card bus with my usb device, my mac does not register either the cardbus or the device.
Does anybody know if this is compatible with my powerbook/OS and if not, if there is another cardbus out there that is.
Thanks so much for the help!
Try the TechGear USB 2.0 cardbus. There are some available on eBay for $10.00. Item number is 250394104416. I bought two for older Titanium 15" PowerBooks, one on 10.4.11; one on 10.3.9. The cards works perfectly with no software drivers. I just inserted them into the PC slots and they work fine. In one case, one computer had a bad factory USB 1.1 slot, so the card does well for extending the comuter's life. The card included a CD with drivers for older versions of Windows and Mac 10.1 and Mac 10.2. I would NOT install drivers for newer systems.
