Do you have USB 3.0 on your motherboard? If not: it won't work.

That goes into a 3.5" external drive bay, formerly meant for floppy drives, now occasionally used for media card readers and removable hard drives, do you have one of those spots available and does your motherboard support USB 3.0 as said above?

You haven't really told us what you tried either....

You need to add this PCI card and then use the internal USB 3 header pins to plug in what you already have. I don't know whether the cable length will be sufficient on the device you have. Consider mounting the front USB 3 device on the lowest front panel port.

Sorry i was half awake when i wrote this. My motherboard does support usb 3.0 but it already is filled in by the case's usb 3.0. I have already purchased a pci-e usb 3.0 slot. I just need it to fit inside the case. The floppy disk drive bay didn't fit unless it needs like a special tray?
