Actually, if you look closely, only 8 of the pins are used, and two of those are grounds, and can be shared.
I've found threads on here where cat5 cable is used to extend your USB connectors. I don't understand how that is done. The USB connections that connect to the motherboard use 9 pins. Correct if I'm wrong, but a cat5 cable only has 8 wires. How do i get this accomplished? I'm quite confused on what needs to be done. If someone can point me to a thread that I might have overlooked in my search or some website that gives detailed instrunctions how to do this.
Thanks for the responses.
