4 pin USB2 connector

This may be a stupid question but what is a 4 pin USB2 connection.

I thought that both USB 1 and 2 had the same type.

You're right, they are identical.

im unsure but i think it is what you can plug into the motherboard to connect additional usb ports which are common on the front and sometimes the sides of cases.

hope im helpful!

Thought so

Why do you think an external HDD with usb2 gives the description of fitted with 4 pin usb2 connection?

Just to reassure you. Look at the pins in any usb plug/socket - 4 pins. Irrelevant advert blurb really.

When Connecting to Motherboard header pins you have to remember that Red wire is five volts+ Black is Negative others are data wires. Get the Red and black on wrong pins and the USB is no more
