USB Confusion

By jpmarlin ·
A "Dummies Guide to USB" would seem timely about now!

Limited support under W95, need for SE for W98, M/B pinouts (I personally
have 4x2, 5x2, twice 1x5 and 2x5, reversed from each other, 1x8 (grounds
siamesed). Difference between "A" and "B" connectors, etc., etc., etc.! At
least 2 speed specs, and at least 2 support specs.

The whole thing is, at best, a hope-and=pray with a VOM needed to be sure!

HELP!

Since I'm not sure of your question, I'll point you in a direction. http://www.usb.org

That should help you with a lot of the misunderstandings you have with usb. MB manufacturer's are free to design the pinouts on their MB's anyway they want I believe as long as they provide the interface connector (standard or as an option). Most manufacturers I have dealt with had the pinouts in the manual in case you wanted to adapt your own connector.

Hope that helped.
