Default Fried USB reader, help :(

Hey I need some help because I just fried my USB card reader. I just got the following case and PSU http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811190080


well I took my Compaq 4410US motherboard which is a TR100 and put it in there. Well Everything was fine until I plugged in my USB card reader into the front USB ports. The minute I did I heard pop and smoke coming from the Reader. I'm not sure what happened, but I have a good feeling that I hooked it up wrong but the case nor the mother board has any info on what pin is what. anyone have any ideas? I contacted HP support, but they are useless.

Two possibilities:

You plugged in a USB 2.0 product into a front USB slot that is only USB 1.1 (11MB/s). USB 2.0's speed is about 120MB/s.

Your card reader is fried, and you better pray that you have the receipt

I know the front usb ports on the case are 2.0, but the board is 1.1. So that is more than likely the issue. I didnt think that would matter

I would try NOT using the front USB ports. They aren't designed for the motherboard; they're designed for the old motherboard that supported USB 2.0.

Does anything happen when you plug in the USB card reader to the back?
