Front USB ports

  Kudu 14:14 08 Mar 2003

On my new case i have 2 usb ports with four wires red,white,green and blue coming from each.I wired up one port to the motherboard ok but the wires on the other had all the small black plastic (marked) connectors on the wrong wires so i have connected them to mobo using the wire colours as a guide.

Any way of checking ports without burning something out as the assembler may have been having a bad day and connected the wires to the usb sockets as per the marked connectors and not cable colour.

Take a look at this thread from last week click here it deals pretty much with your query.

I think you are incorrect in changing the wires around. On my motherboard one plug fits one way and the other is connected the other way round.It all depends on your motherboard connections. As a quide I suggest you go to click here and see if that page helps.

I read this thread and it's not covering same point.I have a manufacturers mistake with wiring and am worried about plugging anything in to usb ports.
