Question about IOGear Cardbus Card GPU202 Serial Adapter

1 Answer

Iogear gpu 202 cardbus not working with mac powerbook osx 10.4.11

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!

    I'm having the same problem trying to install the drivers on my Titanium G4 PowerBook under OS X 10.4.11.  I'm going to call their tech support number tomorrow ...


    According to the IOGear website, the card shouldn't need drivers under 10.4 Tiger ... but it sure doesn't work without them.

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.

Hi Bobby
You will need to get an OS X installation DVD. Try eBay.Don't go for anything lower than 10.4 (Tiger)10.5 (Leopard) and 10.6 (Snow Leopard) should run fine on this machine.Don't bother with 10.7 or 10.8

Do I need a driver for iogear 274,if yes wher to find it


No, is it not being recognized? The only thing that should happen when it is plugged in is that you get more USB ports. Are you getting an error when plugging in? Are the additional port not work? What operating system?

Mac G4 Running Slow


Many many reasons may be causing your Mac computer running slow, but generally two factors: hardware part & system part. For hardware part: I guess it's OK if your Mac is not that old. For system part: there might be a lot of junk files, caches, registry errors... out there which largely slow down any Mac machines. about 80% slow Mac caused by this reason, if so, try cleaning the system.

Restore CD


You don't need a "restore" cd.

You can just use any copy of Tiger.

Borrow one!

Mac Powerbook shows file wih flashing question mark, won't boot.


The flashing question mark means that the computer can't find an OS.
If the computer previously was working, start up from the OSX disc and run 'Disc Utility' from the 'Utilities' menu in the top toolbar.
Run 'First Aid' to check and repair any errors.
If the computer still can't find an OS then you will need to re-install OSX.
