I want to install a usb port but the block on my motherboard has 10 pins and the cable for the usb ports only has 9. I wonder if I can just put another hole in the cable end or do I need another type of usb port? Anybody run into anything like this before? <p></p><i></i>
The Belkin connector I bought at Office Depot/Circuit city was designed for 10 pin configs (i.e. two 5 pin headers for the USB ports). If you can't get the one you have now to work, you might look into this... <p></p><i></i>

rdrdr,<br><br>What's the USB pin assignment on the motherboard? If memory serves, in a 10-pin setup, there's usually 4 pins assigned to ground (Two per USB port). Your cable most likely has only three ground wires, but you should be able to get away with not hooking a cable up to one of the ground pins.<br><br>Hope that helps,<br><br>-fire <p></p><i></i>
