Anyone have any ideas on if this is possible, and if so, is it relatively easy and cheap?

Badger said:The USB chipset/controller is built into the main board. There is no practical way to upgrade. Apple has revised the eMac several times but has not upgraded to USB 2. They seem to be saying consumers should use Firewire if USB 1.1 is not fast enough.
Unfortunately, that appears to be the case. However, eMacs and iMacs are not really designed with end user upgradability in mind (with the exception of RAM). If you are looking for a Mac that you would be able to upgrade rather easily, I would suggest a G4 or G5 tower.Maxwell Murder said:So I'm stuck with an non-upgradable port?

Maxwell Murder said:I understand the firewire ports are available, but my iriver mp3 player is usb 1.1/2.0 only. I'm not willing to get rid of the iriver just to use firewire on the, quite frankly, inferior iPod.
