Re: USB 2.0 PCI ADAPTOR 4 PORT 1PARA. TO #4
Pleasure to see a fellow brown are we related ? :->
have you performed a test of each wire with a multi meter
to determine if each wire is indeed not broken ( open circuit )
if things check out ok with the multi meter , then it's time to start
digging deeper , such as asking yourself if you have indeed ENABLED the usb header at the bios level and has an IRQ that
does not conflict with other devices.
Also you'll want to make sure a driver is properly loaded for each
USB port , sometimes we forget to do all these things.
if all checks out after that , it's time to start getting suspicious
of the device being plugged in to the port , a dirty port can mean loss of connection , silly but so true.
if all checks out after that but still no luck , it's time to start asking yourself if you want to test things farther with extensive
checking of each USB port to make certan each port can read and write , this can be done with certan software.
if everything checks out at that point but still no luck ,
it's time to start asking yourself if you've made a boo boo
by loading an incorrect Operating system, ( rare )
I hope this information has been helpful , sometimes
we fail to get our trouble shooting ducks in a row.

You will either need to connect the front pannel connector on the several pin located on the motherboard or you can short circuit this by using a pen or screw driver and contact the 2 red pins (on the front pannel connector)
The L&R-Ret2&3 are common so only one needs fitting so for the speakers you only need to connect 3 cables. R-Out, L-Out and one return (either L of R). I'll comment back shortly on the mic pins for you.
Check to see if the drive is available in disk management, if so and it's got a blue bar at the bottom, try changing the drive letter. If not, try the following:
Normally with the passport drives, you receive a shorter USB cable (this is because the drive relies on power from the PC, which your normal length USB cannot offer sufficiently. If you are using a short cable, try connecting the drive to the back of your desktop PC, this generates more power than the ports on the front (the ports on the front are actually hubs). If none of these options work try it on another PC, using the steps above.
If you still have an issue, the drive has most likely failed and you will need to get data recovery done to retrieve your data. If you do so, contact samsung for warranty information, so that your warranty doesn't become void.
The USB ports on the front panel allow convenience for devices which you might connect and disconnect from time to time (like portable media card readers for example, or USB-camera cables) so you don't have to reach to the back of your case. If you are going to use the front panel USB ports, make sure they are connected to the motherboard inside if you are not using a store-bought computer.
