I tried a generic Opti OHCI USB 1.1 controller in my U5 (same mainboard
as U10) and it worked fine. So there is some hope.
For my U5, I had to try out several cards: Don't believe what the manual says or whats written in the specs - simply try it. Some cards didn't show up, some even stop the system and some don't work reliably. In Germany, You have a 2-4 week money back guarantee when returning stuff that was ordered online. Don't know how it's
handled in Your country, though ...
