I was wondering..
I have not used any powered usb hubs in my setup.
I have passed one usb cable to my hand brake (3m) to connect my ipod or mouse or whatever.. I am using the other 3 usb ports for my touchscreen, my GPS, and a remote control..
When I connect my ipod or my creative mp3 player.. they do not work.. device has mulfunctioned...etc. if i connect it back in the trunk (where i keep my pc) directly in the pc it works fine.. so there is a voltage drop i guess in the cable..
what i was wondering is can i cut the red wire on the usb extention cable and give it 5 volts directly from my DSATX? and not using the power from the mobo, instead of buying a hub which is useless to me?
