USB Connection Help Needed

I am just finishing my first upgrade attempt but am having difficulty with the case USB leads connecting to the mboard.

The mboard (Foxconn)connections show:


VCC VCC
D4- D0-
D4+ D0+
GND GND
Empty GND

The USB connectors are GND, -D, +D and +5v. Can someone please tell me where to stick 'em? Can I use either GND connection for the GND connector?

Have you not got 9 pins, one row of 4 and one row of 5?

Yes 9 pins. Row 1 is VCC, D-, D+, GND, Empty.

Row 2 is VCC, D-, D+, GND, GND.

It seems fairly obvious where the D-, D+ & GND USB connectors go but what about the +5v? Can the ground connector go on any ground pin?

Thanks for your interest!

I am no expert on this. All I know is that when I fitted a USB multi-card reader there were 5 pins in one row and 4 parallel. It would only fit one way. I believe the same thing applies to adding extra USB ports.

Hopefully someone more knowledgable will be able to comment.

Looks like there is not much standardisation. You may need to check your mobo manual.
