hey i want usb *preferably usb 2.0* to be in a 3.5inch bay *the same one as the floppies go in*. can anyone assist me on purchasing this ideal component. i found one called easyusb that antec makes but it goes on the 5. inch whatever bay.
hey, that's a good idea. i could use something like that. so i looked and found this:
it's a 4-port hub that goes right in your 3.5" bay. the thing i don't like about it is it uses a usb cable to connect your usb port on the back of your computer, i guess... unless you have an internal port somewhere. but i suppose you could splice some cables and connect it to the internal expansion ports on your mobo.
I installed just what you are talking about a few weeks ago.
I bought a unit that fits into a 3.5" bay and provides three new USB ports in the front. But wait, thats not all! It also included a PCI card that slips into a empty slot and adds two more USB ports in the back! So I got five more ports, three front and two back. And I still have my orginial 2 in the back so now I have a total of 7!
I saw the ones the previous poster show that requires a USB cable connection, but I like the way mine installs with a PCI card.
I found mine on eBay and I paid something like $24 plus shipping.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
