    I am trying to connect cables from a case's front panel & USB card reader to an ASUS M2N MX SE.

    http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=101&l3=345&l4=0&model=1870&modelmenu=1

    The front panel has 2 USB ports, an Audio in [ pink ] jack and an Audio out [ green ] jack.

    I am having a problem with the Audio connectors.
    There is 1 audio cable, with separate connectors labeled, with associated colors:
    HPOUT -R White
    HPOUT R Red
    Gnd Black

    HPOUT - L White
    HPOUT L Red
    Gnd Black


    The card reader has a single cable that connects to the motherboard.
    There 4 wires going into a plug. The order of the wires is:
    red
    green
    white
    black

    To where on the motherboard should I connect this plug?

    Thanks for your help.

    Have you got any documentation for the card reader? Is it built into the case? Most card readers I have dealt with have been plugged into a USB header on the motherboard.

    I:

    No hits on TW54906F7 at google or yahoo

    SmartMediia flash card standard by Toshiba

    The wire color sequence is different than the wire color sequence for the USB cables from the front panel.

    Front Panel wire sequence
    red
    green
    white
    black
    [ empty ]

    The wire sequence for the front panel USB ports:
    VCC Red
    USB 1- White
    USB 1+ Green
    Gnd Black

    Card reader, front is labeled "smartmedia"
    There is a bar code label, with TW549066F7

    Image of the front panel audio cable plugs.

    I apologize that the image is out of focus.
    From left to right, the plugs are labeled
    HPOUT R
    HPOUT -R
    Ground
    HPOUT -L
    HPOUT L

    I have resolved the USB card reader problem.

    I still need assistance with the audio front panel connection to the motherboard header.

    I spoke with the person who built the computer, ~ 3 years ago. He suggested trial and error.
    :(

    I hope someone at TechGuy Forum can be more specific.
