Front USB stopped working, no idea what cable I need.

Today I was working away when I tried to plug my headset into my Front USB and it would not work. From what I can tell there are 2 connectors each controlling 2 ports but only 1 port is not working. I assume it is the cable but I have no idea what it is.

The cable is a USB header to this end and plugs into the port as shown.

Thanks in advance

  6. try to find another wiring harness similar to the one you have or if not another front panel with front usb ports. i had a similar problem and couldnt find another wiring harness similar to the on i had but managed to get another front panel and problem solved
  7. I had a problem where scan disk flash 8 gig drive stopped working on the front ports but worked in the rear ports it drove me crazy. Other flash drives worked in both ports( Front & Rear) What worked for me with a MSI mother board was to install a PNY usb flash in the front port find out where the port was in device manager ( showed up as mass storage device) uninstall the the device and then plugged in the problem flash drive and windows then saw and reinstalled the driver.
