Title: USB 2.0 for OS9?
Post by: Galane on December 18, 2018, 05:27:45 PM
It's about time that happened, right? I wouldn't expect to ever see USB 3+ on OS9 but 2.0 should be doable.

It's completely doable, just aren't that many skilled OS 9 programers out of work.  ;)

Apple never really offered as much example code and documentation as they did with OS X.

it would be an amazing development - but its not really neccessary because firewire IS the usb2.0 you are looking for.
just find firewire stuff on the cheap on ebay + amazon + Be done with it (https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=m570.l1313&_nkw=firewire+%28400%2C+800%2C+hard+drive%2C+enclosure%2C+3.5%22%2C+5.25%22%2C+IDE%2C+PATA%29&_sacat=0&LH_TitleDesc=0&_osacat=0&_odkw=firewire+%28hard+drive%2C+enclosure%2C+3.5%22%2C+5.25%22%2C+IDE%2C+PATA%29&LH_TitleDesc=0)
