    where do I hook the card reader into?

    I got this

    and it has 2 wires, that appear to be the same. but darned if I know where to plug them in on the mobo.

    only place I can think of would be the USB connectors. but I dont want to just plug them anywhere and risk it.

    since there are 2, and each is a single row of 5 pins, if it is supposed to go to the USB, should each get its own USB port, or on top of each other(since USB ports are two rows of 5 pins)?

    I found this's%20Guide.pdf

    which doesn indicate it should hook into a USB receptor on the mobo. but still, Im confused, do the 2 plug into the same one? or 2 seperate receptors?(and which pins of 2 seperate receptors?)

    their instructions stink...

    I would treat the 2x5 pin adapters as if they were a 10 pin USB adapter and plug them in side by side in the same header. Look at other USB ports to see what color wire to put on what end.
