    SP13000 and lack of ports for all my devices.

    So the SP13000 I have is perfectly stable, love it.
    just decided to add a few new devices:

    optical mouse, usb keyboard, razr cell phone data cable (also acts as a charger)

    I'm using:

    Serial Touchscreen, Serial GPS via USB to serial cable, Parallel to USB external enclosure DVD rom,

    How do I get all this **** on the tiny SP13000?

    Some other info: Opus150w, 1 Gig ram, laptop HD.

    The SP 13000 has 2 serial ports, parallel port, firewire, and 8 USB ports on board. All you need is to add connectors to use the additional ports.

    Yo jimmy thanks.


    OK so I found the ports JimmyFitz pointed out, highlighted in pink


    Are these standard connectors, or are they custom order ****?
    Will any computer store carry these, or are they specific to via's SP13000.

    No, these are standard connectors. A well equipped computer store should carry these.

    I got some of them from logicsupply.com and some from local shops. The 1394 (Firewire) is an odd one. No one in town has it. The others are common.

    They are standard headers. Here's some examples of what you could use.

    So today, I looked through my computer cable stash, some old motherboard boxes and guess what?
    I have the cables already. In fact, I have extras. LOL.
    Hooked everything up today, another problem solved. Done.
