Basically, my main point of this post is to ask the difference between the two different types of USB ports I have.
Inside the slot, one type has a long horizontal bar in the center, and one has 4 metal prongs sticking out in a horizontal line.
I only have one port with the prong-type and it's broken - missing one of the prongs - and I'm looking to buy a replacement(not risking a repair shop again unless absolutely necessary) so I was wondering if someone could give me some kind of ... official name or model number that I can identify the pronged USB port as? Also, whether there's a difference or not in the performance or whether the prong-type is outdated or something?
Out of all the many USB-attachment stuff that I have, it's only my nearly-a-decade-old Logitech QuickCam that requires the prong-type.
Any help is well appreciated!
Thanks a bunch!!!
