Motherboard USB header hub


This is infact not a linux specific question but something that someone may be able to help me with.

My motherboard has one internal USB header which is conected to the front mounted USB on my case. I wish to add an internal 3.5inch card reader to my system. My problem lies in the fact that it requires another USB header.

Is there a mini usb header hub out there which could split my internal header into two or three headers?

Thanks in advance,

Marcus Shirley

You could get a something like THIS. Or you could just get a aPCI Card.
