USB card connectors

Discussion in 'PC Hardware' started by Don Phillipson, Nov 6, 2007.

  1. I want to replace the USB.v.1 card in a Compaq Presario
    7000CA with a USB.v.2 card. The problem is their connectors.

    The old USB card has
    1. A standard 4-wire power supply, as used for CD drives.
    2. Nine-pin plug (of a type I have not seen before)
    connecting to the two front-panel USB jacks.

    The new USB card has
    1. No extra power supply; presumably it gets power
    from its PCI plug-in slot.
    2. One USB jack, presumably to connect jacks
    (like the custom 9-pin connector on the old card.)

    Is this 9-pin connector peculiar to Compaq or just a
    discarded standard? I am doubtful what to do next.
