sorry to harp on about usb 2.0.
I've been told that I can set up a firewire hub that has a USB 2.0 port on it, then plug my high-speed usb 2.0 device into the said USB 2.0 hub and transfer my data from the device to the computer via the firewire connection, only at firewire speeds.
Is this true?

I am pretty sure that the hubs you are thinking of plug into the FireWire and USB ports. To get the USB 2.0 Speeds it must be plugged into a USB 2.0 port. I don't think you can just plug it into the firewire port and have the Firewire and USB ports accessing the firewire speedsDon't forget to use the new User Reputation System

The transfer speed is the speed of the slowest device in the chain. In other words hooking a USB 2 hub into an eMac is not going to transform the eMac USB port speed to USB 2.

it is guarenteed to be that the hub is firewire and usb 2 built into one so it is more convienient (sp?) it doesn't turn firewire into usb2iBook G3 (2001) 500MHz 384 RAM 9.2.2 / 10.2.8
