Question about ASUS M2N-MX Motherboard
When I am connecting Western Digital portable Hard Disk in the front USB port the OS( Windows Xp Pro) does not recognize that.... but in the same port if I connect a pen drive/ wireless keyboard it works.... Now the portable Hard disk will work if I am connecting that in the rear side USB port.... Why it is not working the front side ??? Help me out in this
Check the power connector is it a 24 pin or 20 pin connector may be that's the cause of low power reaching the mother boards which is causing the usb hard disk only functioning only on the rear side ports

On some computers the front usb ports are like a usb hub, they don't have enough power to power up a hard drive.

The front side port may be a "low power" USB port, it may be possible to "power" this if there is the capacity to connect a power cable to the front panel USB adapter, or there may be an aux power socket to plug into on the motherboard.
