I have not been able to get the front USB 2.0 ports to work on my box. I've tried moving the jumpers for USB on the motherboard from OOx to xOO as the MOB book suggested but still nothing. The rear ports work fine.
Any ideas? Thanks

One thing that comes to mind is to make certain you have them plugged in properly on the boards connector.

This may be the problem. I have no connectors to the MOB as none were provided by Antec or Asus. Can I buy connectors?

I had trouble with this too. I had 2 sets of connectors to the mobo, each set had 4 different "plugs". The 4 were VCC 1, Data -1, Data + 1 and Ground 1. The other set of four was the same but instead of the 1, it was always 2 so example: VCC 2, Data -2, etc. The pins on my mobo were setup as such:

TOP - . . . . (4)
BOTTOM - . . . . . (5)

9 pins. The way I set it up is such (left to right)

TOP - VCC 1, Data -1, Data +1, Ground 1
BOTTOM - VCC 2, Data -2, Data +2, Ground 2

I just tested my setup by putting in my Sidewinder wheel and XP immediately recognized it. So it works. Try doing that... the labels on your connectors might not be the same but just use common sense, it most likely uses the +1, +2 stuff.

Now mine has the four pin under the five pin so I guess cssconline is going to have to refer to the mobo manual..
