390 MT, Internal USB connector

Jump to solution

I have a multi-card reader that I would like to add to my Optiplex 390 minitower.  This multicard reader has a USB 10- pin connector at its output.  I looked over the my PC motherboard and could not find such a connector.  Anyone knows if the motherboard that came with Optiplex 390 minitower has a 10pin USB connector that is hiding somewhere?

Thanks!

ejn63,

I uploaded the picture of the Optiplex 390 DT/MT motherboard. It shows #9 as the Internal USB Connector (USBF1) ?

Thanks so much!!  

I honestly do not know how I missed it.  I was looking at this manual too before and completely did not see that page.  Not sure how that happened, but now I know.  

Thank you very much for a pointer!  Now its time for me to open the desktop up again to see if those ports are availalble or not.  

Thanks again!!

Does anyone know the pinout for the 16 pin Front I/O header?  Like the Power SW +/- , the HDD activity light, etc.? Thank you in advance for any help.
