  • Connecting usb ports on the mobo header..

    Im trying to connect up usb to my mobo header... im not sure which pins are which tho..

    The usb ports that i am using have a total of 8 wires... (2 lil spots are empty)

    My mobo header looks like this
    . . <--- left unconnected
    . . <--- Black GND
    . . <--- Green D +
    . . <--- white D-
    . . <--- red +5v


    I connected both Red + 5V wires to the bottom right pins
    the White D - ones above that.. and the rest like they are in that diagram ^

    so anyways.. it didnt work..and i did have the usb turned on in the bios settings..

    SO... do u think it would be a good idea to try to connect them in the opposite way
    (like this)
    . . <--- red +5v
    . . <--- white D-
    . . <--- Green D +
    . . <--- Black GND
    . . <--- NC

    ???? b/c i heard u can short teh mobo out or something...

      anyways.. i think i connected it wrong the first time... and i just noticed that they are numbered...like this:

      1 2
