Hi there.

Here it goes:

I got a motherboard ASUS K8N + Sempron 3100+ + Windows XP SP2.

The 4 USB built-in within the motherboard work perfectely, but there is a frontal panel USB connector, which comes with the MB, that I can´t wonder how to configure.

When running WinXP, I connect a devide - a pen drive, in case - and the pen drive turns on, but WinXP gives me the following:

"USB device was not recognized"

Then, there is a "Unknown device" on the Device Manager listed under the "USB controllers".

If I plug the same pen drive on the rear USBs, it works fine.

Any help?

Thanks

Well, off the top of my head are you sure you connected the headers properly?

Hello.

Yep, I´m sure I did.

It´s quite strange, 'cause, actually, the device it´s one of those mp3 players and when I connect it to front panel, the lcd shows a animation as if the mp3 player were in communication with the pc.

Thanks for replying.

Then the only other two things I can think of are a) the controller for the front USB is disfunctional, which I somehow doubt, but I guess it's possible and b) the drivers for it are not installed properly. I would try and see if you can resolve b) first.
