    I have the following USB/audio ports that does not fit the floppy slot of my PC front panel. Grateful for advice on where this should be installed and how? Thanks.

    It attaches to the front of the case, and it only fits the cases it was designed and included with; it's pretty much useless otherwise. Looks like it might be from an HP/Compaq.

    UUUGGGG--- buy a top of the line case just to tear it up....
    going back to really old school of MODDING your case.
    back in the old days cases only came one
    way & U had to make any changes to it yourself.
    when I first came on the sceen there wasn,t any cases
    with side panel fans. U had to make the whole yourself
    and use a cardboard tube to direct the intake air
    on to the CPU FAN.
    In your situation a lot of the top cases have trays for
    SSD drives. Some of the trays are made to fit into
    a 5.25 slot. Figure out how to fit the device U want to
    use to the tray & then make U some kind of front panel
    to close off the slot but leave the connections
    open for your cables to hook up.

    Moving to modern times U could just junk your
    device & just buy a new one already made to fit into
    a 5.25 slot in the front of your case
