A case of the Missing USB .

I added a 2nd hard drive to my G3 Beige desktop this week, and installed OS 9.2.2 on it . The main hard drive is running OS 9.0.4 , and I have a PowerLogix RapidFire card installed for my USB/FireWire connectivity.

Well guess what ? No USB at all on the 9.2.2 system , but FireWire is fine. Re-Booting the very same machine back to 9.0.4 and my USB is just fine again , so it must be a system software issue, not hardware.

What the hell is going on here ? HELP !

Did you maybe forget to install the drivers for the USB/FireWire card? Sounds like the FireWire ports work fine with Apple's software but there are special drivers to get USB working.
