Ok I have an older pc so I Purchased a pci USB 2.0 to upgrade. When I look in the hardware section it says it's there and running properly but when I plug things in (iPod, camera, etc.) nothing comes up for the devices. Any help would be much appreciated thanks!

You may need to update the drivers for it, if it came with a cd with drivers on it look for the drivers on it, if none came with it look on the box (if a new card) if it is compatible with your OS (if using W98), i know that with XP you needed at least to have SP1 installed to be able to make a USB 2.0 pci card to work.

Also when you look in the device manager you need to see USB ENHANCED HOST CONTROLLER if you want it to work

Ok I got it to SOMETIMES detect my iPod but I can't access the iPod itself in iTunes or through 'my computer' I don't really get it. It does say USB enhanced host controller. And when i plug things into the old USB ports it tells me to plug the device into the new ones because they are high speed but they're not acting normal. Please help.

I would try to put your USB 2 PCI card into another (the farthest from video card) pci slot (if any free) and see if you have the same problems
