Is there any way to connect my two front usb ports to my MSI 6116 mobo that doesn't have seperate connectors. Maybe through a PCI card?
Any help appreciated.

I bought a new case with front usb ports but my motherboard doesn't have sperate connectors.

I also have a 4 port usb 2.0 pci card with one internal port. Is there anyway of using this to connect to the front ones? Your help is appreciated.

What is the make and model of your hub.
If the internal port looks similar to your front usb connnecter you may be able to use it.[IMPORTANT that you check wiring diagrams for both to check they are the same otherise you may cause some damage]

It is a normal USB socket inside the computer on the card. The front ports have 8 wires coming out of them. I'm not sure of the make of the card. It came free with an iomega external cd/rw.

Unless you can get a cable to match card and front panel connecter looks like a no go.Not sure if they make them
