usb connection

  cearve 20:53 08 Oct 2003

I have a QDI KinetiZ 7E-A mobo, which has a 10 pin connection for usb 3&4. I have 2 usb ports at the front of my case each with 4 marked wires. Can anyone tell me which of these marked wires I need to connect to which pins? Each usb has +5v, ground, +D and -D wires.

Kinetz7E motherboard manual here in case you don't have one. click here

ONLY trust the manula to give you the layout of the motherboard pins.

+5V = Vcc

+D = Data+

-D = Data-

Gnd = Ground

In case you have any doubts about which is which.

If the case has two ports, one set of wires will be labelled 1 or 3, the other set will be labelled 2 or 4

As long as you keep all the same number together as a set, it doesn't matter which row you put them on.

There may be one or two extra pins marked N/C (no connection) or GND - ignore them - just keep all four wires in a set next to each other.

Thanks DieSse. I looked at the site and found the motherboard manual. Problem is when I download it the words are not readable, just a jumbled mess. Am I opening the file correctly. What am I doing wrong?
