I have added a usb 2.0 pci card to my computer. I want to convert the usb 1.1 ports on the front of my pc to the new 2.0. How do I go about this. I am using windows XP. There is an internal port on the card, but the cable leading from the old 1.1 ports connecting to the motherboard has a different plug then the port. Any help is appreciated.

I would just take a short (2.5' or 3') USB cable, cut off the "B" plug end and solder it to the wires from the USB jacks in the case after removing that connector.

Thanks for the suggestion. It just seems that some sort of adaptor/cable should be available.
