On my MacPro I have 3 USB ports on the back and 2 on the front. I have 7 periferals i want to connect to the computer and they all need to be connected to a USB port on the computer in order to fuction. Hubs I have testet can not help. On the front of the computer there are 2 USB 2.0 porte can they be used?? If yes
are cables avaiable ( mail stick for the computer port at one end and male USB stickfor the periferel on the other end ). Alternatively are there useable Hubs on the market?
USB Hubs are not always very reliable. Some time ago I added a USB2/FireWire card in a PCI slot in the chassis which gives an extra three USB 2 sockets and two FireWire 400 sockets on the back of the machine.
