  • How can I access extra USB ports on EPIA MII-12000

    I've got me self a VIA EPIA MII-12000 mobo and installed WinXP.
    When I go to the device manager it says that I have 3, yes 3, USB Root Hubs.
    Now I'm assuming 1 hub is servicing the 2 USB ports on the back panel.

    So what are the two others? More importantly, can I use them? Cause what I whant to do requires from 5 to 6 USB ports and, if at all possible, I dont whant to use an external USB Hub (from what I read, they dont seem to work so great).

    Any hints???

    check the manual, there is a connector on the motherboard (near the FDD connector) that is your other usb connector (it is not a normal usb connector, but a row of 5 pins next to a row of 4 pins). you want to connect something likethis to that plug.

        Doh! It never occured to me that there where extra connectors directly on the mother board! I just looked them over and this mobo is packing (at least for my needs)!
        Even better now that I have found a CF GPS receaver. Now I only need 4 USB ports. so no more need a USB hub!

        Excellent, truly thanks!
