    Do they make a " Y adapter " or splitter for internal USB headers?

    My motherboard has 6 USB ports on the rear panel, and only one internal header that the 2 front panel jacks plug into. I want to put a multi format card reader in one of the floppy drive bays. I was hoping to be able to plug it in inside the case instead of use a standard cable and run it out the back to plug in outside.

    I was thinking you might be able to get a Y adapter similar to the ones for the power connector when you add another optical drive. ?? [​IMG]

    You could make one out of a hub, probably. But why not just plug a hub into the front of the case? I guess it'd be kind of ugly, but if you need the ports...

    I just saw a USB splitter over at Fry's yesterday, it wasn't "internal" per se, but it's so small that you can probably use it internally. Don't know how much.
