I was about to purchase an internal usb hub that fits into the 3 1/2inch bay. But when I checked for some install instructions on the internet, it seems I need an internal usb connector. I've looked inside the computer but I don't seem to have one. Does this mean I can't use this type of hub? Is there any way around it? Thanks

There will need to be a block of connection pins available on the motherboard (not a USB socket if that's what you searched for), four pins for each USB connection.

If you can identify your system (Brand and Model/Type number if it is a namebrand) or motherboard brand & model, we should be able to find a diagram of any USB connectors that may be available to use.

If you can't identify your system, download the Everest Free diagnostic and run it on your system, post what motherboard it identifies in your system:

Do you have USB ports available in the front of your case already? If so, tracing the leads to it will locate the USB Header - but disconnecting it will disconnect those USB ports on the front of your system.

Here's a link to the downloads page for your mobo manual: http://global.msi.com.tw/index.php?func=do...amp;prod_no=307

Looking at v3.0 of your mobo, there's a picture on page 1-4 that shows the location of the JUSB1 at the bottom center of the motherboard. On page 2-20 is a detailed description of this header (and it states that it's the only one).

I was actually looking for a normal USB socket. It looks like I have got the right connector after all. There's definitely a JUSB1 connection there. Thanks for your help
