I have a chieftec case that has a builtin USB 2 hub in the front. The problem is I'm having a difficult time getting it to work.
My motherboard has 9 pins where it can handle USB 1 hubs. When I plug it in there, nothing happnes.
This leads me to believe that I need to buy a USB 2 PCI card that be able to handle it.
The only problem is that when I surf the Web and look at these USB 2 cards, most of them that do have pins doesn't look like the arrangment in my mobo.
Here's a picture of what this looks like:
Can anyone help me out here? I desperately need a new USB 2 card.
You're correct in assuming that you cannot plug your USB2 ports into your USB1 header. Most PCI USB cards will have a header on them for an additional connection (as well as the two that you will see out the back). Check out the PCI card further...if you can't find the header on it, link a pic to it. :?
Most of the cards that I have seen have two inside connections.
1. The type A connection
2. Some pins that connect to it's own USB hub
Any recommendations would be helpful.
