Yes that’s right, USB 2 must have the ability to have external power to
meet USB2 standards. Most don't give you a power adaptor with the card
though, as its not needed. I use my Jukebox without power to the USB2

I had a similar problem, then someone said it needs an external power
adapter... On the card, there were really a slot which could fit an
plug.. I've never find the power source.. So I couldn't use it.

I have a question;

First some general info:

* ALI PCI to USB 2.0 Cardbus Host Adapter (PCMCIA)
* OS = Windows 98SE
* ARCHOS Jukebox 6000 with Rockbox 2.0 for player
* latest USB driver installed of Archos on the laptop

itself is
working, but when I connect my Jukebox to it, it won't see it, it
come up with the message new hardware found in order to install the

I did try it the other way around, by installing the driver first and
connect the Jukebox, but unfortunately no luck.

Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong ? USB 2.0 does support USB 1.0 and

I hope it's possible...

Thanks for your reply in advance ;)

Keep up the good work on the ROCKBOX, IT REALLY RULES !!
