Does it have PCI slots? You can buy PCI to USB 2 add in cards, They are pretty cheap. In fact here is one for 4 bucks.


If you want USB 3 then no, unless you have PCI express slots. USB 3 bus speed is faster than PCI slots so they are only being made to fit PCI express, as far as I know.

You can get a USB2 card for the PCMCIA slot cheaply.
USB3? No way as it doesn't have PCI Express slots.
