USB Card

I'm looking for a USB card that will fit a 7300/180. Any help here?

Thanks!

I am using a sonnet Tango in

I am using a sonnet Tango in my PCI 7500. I had to extract the USB and Firewire extensions from a MacOS update CD using Tome Viewer, but that's common practice. I am using MacOS 9.1. 

 

This is the exact one https://www.ebay.com/itm/353446881123

 

Usb and firewire both working :)

Nice, good option for sure if

Nice, good option for sure if you just need USB. I like having firewire; speed wise I have beaten the internal SCSI bus with it according to Norton testing utilities.

Thanks Bill. Does this card require any specific software?

This guide should serve you

This guide should serve you well, at least on the 7500 only 9.1 is supported. I run 9.1 though I could hack 9.2 on there since I have a G3 card but I choose not to. For either version though this information should sort you.

Hi Paulie, It depends what OS

Hi Paulie,

 

It depends what OS you use. If you use 9.1 or 9.2 the drivers are on the Apple  Mac OS 9 CD

 

8.6 or later you need to search for the drivers
