I'm looking for a PCI USB2 card that will work in a g4 running OS9.2.2.    Anyone know a particular card/brand that will definitely work ?

I know, but I'm just trying to do something about the painfully slow time it takes to pull anything off a USB stick ......... and it is really painfully slow !!!

Have you tried a few cards already?

This is what I have in my old mac I believe.

Having researched this card it will only run as USB2.0 if the mac runs on OSX.  Previous Operating systems will only deliver USB1.0
Maybe thats the same with all other cards too.

From what I gathered your correct. No USB 2.0 functionality because Mac OS 9 does not support it. I do have that card and used it in my G4, but I have OSX and os9 installed. I probably didn't notice the difference because I never really attached anything besides firewire or thumb drives.
