  1. Usb Wire Help Needed Very Much !!!!!!!

    I have an ASUS A7N8X Deluxe MOBO .....I'm trying to hook up FRONT side USB ports using the internal usb56 header.. The wires are labeled from the usb cable i have as follows.

    data+1 (white)
    data-1 (green)
    data-2 (yellow)
    data+2 (blue)
    vcc 1 (Black)
    vcc 2 (red)
    gnd 1 (brown)
    gnd 2 (orange)
    shield (gray)

    It was hooked up prior to me getting it.....took it all apart to clean and thought it was one solid plug until i removed it and found out the hard way.I have searched for hrs and I am stuck.

    The Asus manual says for the header like....usb+5v, usbp5-, usbp6+.etc...None of them say what I have for wires .
    Please help my noob azz..........thank you for your time...

    you'll need a pin out diagram on the mobo.
    Generally though,

    your vcc 's are positive power for 1 and 2 usb ports
    ground shouldn't matter but pair it up as well.
    data +1 is for USB 1
    data -1 is for USB 1
    data +2 is for usb 2
    data -2 is for usb 2
    gray is neutral usually on pin #9

    But seriously this should be easy if you have a mobo pinout. Consult the maker.
