Help with USB PCI card

Hi,

I have an old(-ish) PII using an AT motherboard that ie enabled to support USB.

I bought a USB PCI card and slotted it in but the PC failed to register it. On a previous thread click here 'woodchip' mentioned USB headers and on checking, I found out that the motherboard did have this right next to the PCI slot. Great!

But..errr.. where does one get hold of that kind of USB card with a header plug? Do they have a unique name that could be searched for on the many search engines?

I'm just trying to short-cut having to trawl through many pages of search engine results...

Thanks for all useful pointers.. :-)

Best regards

I only skimmed your link so ignore me if this is not relevant - :-}

Is USB enabled in the BIOS of the machine? If not, enabling it may allow the card to be recognised when installed.

Sorry, I don't know what to call the USB pltte with a header.

3aspect, that looks like it will be the one for my motherboard.
Thanks for the link too.

Cheers.
