I am really ready to cry..I just installed a P55-UD2 MB in my HP Media Center PC. I am having trouble getting the front audio panel connected-it has a couple of audio ports plus a firewire and USB port. I have tried to connect it various ways to the MB and have had no luck. I feel like a total dumby..I am usually pretty good at figuring things out-this just has me baffled.
USB can be a single row four pin; a single row five-pin, with or without one pin blocked; or a two row by five location, ten pin with a single pin blocked - the ten pin is easiest - you can only plug it in one way, due to the blocked pin!
The single row five pin will have an empty location at one end, a red wire at the other; the four pin will be 'filled', but will still have a red wore at one end; in either case, you can plug 'em into either row, with the red wire toward the end illustrated with pins 1 & 2...
The 1394 is, again, a two row by five location, ten pin with a single pin blocked - again, easy - you can only plug it in one way, due to the blocked pin:
