Merry Christmas everyone, its all over for another year.. :mad:

I have recently built myself a new PC a new motherboard and a case etc.

The motherboard I have is a 'Foxconn 600 series' and a new ATX case which I built using some PCI cards and Hdrives from my old case.

The Problem I have is at the front of the case there are two spare USB ports on the side, I also have four ports at the rear supplied on the M/board plus a another two on a PCI card.
The two spare front ports have a flying lead each with a 3pin and a single pin wired, the colors are red/white/green and the single is black. But the M/board has 2 connections for a 10pin connector, which has the following

'F_USB2'
VCC.........VCC
D6-..........D7-
D6+.........D7+
GND........GND
Empty.....GND


'F_USB1'
VCC.........VCC
D4-..........D0-
D4+.........D0+
GND........GND
Empty.....GND



I have since looked on the net and found that this flying lead is known as a type 'A'. The red wire (+5v), the white (- Data), the green (+ Data) and the black (GND). Does this mean that both leads could be connected to the F_USB2 connector block on the M/board. ??? :confused: :) (y) (n)

looking at the header on the motherboard, it should have a block of 9 pins with the 10th pin removed for orientation of the plug(if you had a 1 piece plug). There are two rows of pins, you can use them both, one row of 4 for each USB connection. Starting at the end without the missing pin and working that direction, the wires on my front USB connector leads are Red, White, Green, Black.
