Ask Max: Will a USB 2.0 card work with iTunes and an iPod

Asked on 05/16/2007:

If I install this card in my G4 733MHz Power Mac, will I be able to connect a USB 2.0 iPod and transfer at USB 2.0 high-speed rates? Will the iTunes software recognize the non-built-in USB high-speed ports?


Most USB 2.0 cards will work without drivers in OS X. They will not work well in OS 9, and if they do work at all, it is often at USB 1.1 speeds. If you are using OS X 10.2 and up, then you should be able to use a USB 2.0 card in that G4 tower of yours without any problems. It works like it's native USB 2.0 for all devices and software, including iPods and iTunes.
