USB adapter for motherboard without controller
Posted on 2005-03-29
Hello To All!
I have installed an older motherboard from an HP Pavilion 8500 into a new case. The new case has USB & Firewire ports on the front. My mobo does not have a USB or Firewire controller. I know that some PCI USB & Firewire adapters have an internal port on them. However, the cables from the external ports on the new case are the small 9 pin and 6 pin connectors like you would attach to a motherboard controller. Is there an adapter card or something that I can connect these to so that my external ports will work with the old mobo?
