    to a flush mounted 4 port usb plug.. basically so i can plug my game controllers into the dash easily

    Try eBay. They have USB hubs that support USB 2.0 for something like $10.

    i can pick up a pretty good powered USB hub from my local frys electronics store. they are like 12 bucks, usb 2.0, and then you can just get a longer cord for the hub.

    are there certain USB hubs that support the 2.5" laptop hdd -> usb adapters? i've read some threads where some people couldn't get theirs to work with certain hubs...

    well some hubs are just so cheeap nothing really works on em... or they are pretty fussy about the devices you can plug into them. the one i bought is made by Vakoss and its the 4 port powered hub... it seems i can plug anything into this little guy and nothing upsets it... the other super generic brand of usb hub i have, always has some weird problems.
