    Confused Usb1?2?

    I've been able to do all my scanning via an old scsi UmaxAstra connected to a 7200, but the scanner has now died, and I'll get a replacement to use with an iMac 400 dvse. Does it matter if the new device is USB2? will it work with my machine? I know the current USB extension is USB1.5.6, does this mean I have to stick to USB1 peripherals? ( using sys10.2.4)

    All USB 2 devices will run as USB 1 (1.1) on a machine with only USB 1 support/chipset. So expect that the scanner will run at USB 1 speed.

    Not aware of any other issues.
