    OHCI USB doesn't work in Mac OS 9
    Hello,

    I am running Mac OS 9 on my beige Mac G3. Because I need/want USB ports on this machine, I bought a Belkin F5U220 PCI card. According to the packaging it supports Mac OS 8.6 and higher.

    Unfortunatly, it crashes my Mac during bootup with error 19, and says I should boot without extensions. It even says so when I boot without extensions. Is there something that I am doing wrong, or is this card just incompatible?

    The card isn't broken, because it does work on my Linux machine, but I already had a UHCI/EHCI card installed in that.

    The card I bought is this: Belkin F5U220. When looking under specs there it also doen't mention Mac OS 9, but just Mac OS X. Still, the packaging said it supported OS 9.

    What am I doing wrong? Should I just return this card and get another one?

    Well, I tried that, and it still gives error 19.

    I think I am going to visit my local Apple store for a USB card, probably better than just buying one online (but the online manual said it works with Mac OS 8.6 and higher ).

    Thanks anyway.

    Sounds like an extension conflict. Go into the extension manager and trun off
    some third party Exs your not useing and see what happens,or find a copy
    of conflict catcher. The usb cards with more than two ports are mainy for PCs
    look for the two port cards that are usb one standard.

    That's Right, OS 9 and under only support USB 1.1 and I'm not sure which version of OS X added USB 2 High Speed support.
