USB Adapter Card Support is a set of software extensions that provide support for USB adapter cards installed in the PCI bus or CardBus slots in Mac computers. This software cannot be installed on Mac computers with built-in USB ports. These computers already include support for built-in USB ports and USB PCI adapter cards.

Important: This software supports only USB cards that comply with the Open Host Controller Interface (OHCI) specification and may not work with every USB adapter card. Contact the manufacturer of your USB adapter card if necessary to verify that your card is OHCI-compliant and supported by this more...

Requirements

MacOS 8.6 or later, A Power Mac computer with PCI slots and a USB PCI adapter card.

A Canon i560 Printer works good with tihs driver and a Opti-Chipset card.
But: The installation of this software locks the speaker-volume at a very loud level (PM 7600 OS 9.2.2).
Only removing the "USB Support" System Extension solved the problem.

Not very stable. I have major extension conflicts using this with a USB 2.0 CardBus on my G3 Wallstreet Powerbook. Frequent locks, freezes and restarts. Doesn't like my HP5300 scanner at all, sometimes talks to my HP Deskjet 930C printer, seems fine about my Teac floppy drive, and will sometimes let me use my Disgo flash drive. Does anyone know of something different that could be more reliable?

This driver is not 100% compatible with the G3 Beige - as one user pointed out it periodically disappears and has to be reinstalled. I have had it working on the above G3 with OS X (10.2) & OS9.2.2 but again it is unreliable. As far as OSX goes look for a compatible USB Card and driver. For OS9.x keep trying with the 1.4.1 driver until Apple resolve the problem (don't hold your breath though).
Take care.

This product seems to work very well for me. I only have a two usb port card installed, and one device attached to the card. The only problem I have encountered is that for some reason I have to re install this software because it seems to go missing from my system or my chooser doesnt seem to find it. I use it for an Epson all in one color stylus 2500 on a pci installed usb card.

I've installed this upgrade in a 9600, two different 7500's, and a 5400, all without any problems at all.
