Hi,
I recently purchased an internal Media Card Reader that connects to the motherboard using USB 2.0. However, my motherboard has only 2 USB ports and because the front panel of the chassis has 4 USB ports it needs both of the ports.

Can you get an internal adapter for a motherboard that can plug in to the single port and then branch out in to 2 ports? I'd be surprised if you can't as it is the same concept as an external USB Hub but I don't know what to call it so I haven't found one yet

Or maybe there is another way to create an additional internal usb port?

Thanks in advance,
Ben
