USB socket wiring

  Laser157 12:11 14 Sep 2004

I have rebuilt my system in a new housing (Aopen H600). My Mobo only has 2 rear USB1 ports plus two on an internal header. I also have Qtec 541U USB2 card which has 2 rear ports and a 3-port front bay connected to a header on the card.

The new case has 2 front USB ports, but I do not want to use the Mobo header for these as I use it for 2 extra rear ports. I would rather use the case's front ports with the USB2 card instead of the Qtec bay. I can use two of the three connectors on the Qtec lead for this, and it seems the front ports work OK like this. However on the Qtec bay there seem to be a diode and resistor in each of the outlet circuits. Does anyone know if these are important features which I would be missing out with my set-up? I wondered if they might be current limiting circuits in which case I will revert to the proper Qtec set-up.

Thanks for any help with this.

No responses on this, so I'll bump it for the night owls!

I decided to play safe for now and use the Q-tec bay.
