USB Adapter by Patch
I've got an old motherboard from Epox & I was going to add a USB adapter to the board, but it has a weird looking pin arrangement. My adapter has a 5 pin plug on the end, but the mobo has a double row of 8 pins. How in the heck do I get this thing to work? Is there an adapter with an 8 pin plug?
