Default 4 port USB hub in the floppy slot

I saw this at a friends house, and he tossed the box it came in. He bought it out of town and doesn't remember where.

Who makes it? It is a 4 port hub, that fits in the 3.5 inch floppy drive slot at the front of your case.
It has a cable that runs inside the box, outside a hole in a filler plate and plugs into you existing USB port.

I have one of these... I am in Australia though so you can't buy them from me... Well you could but it would cost a fortune to send it to you. So.... you could look for a company called 'ATEN' who make these sorts of things... they also make allot of other USB hubs and converters... also KVM switches.

My web site

Have a look at this one... remember that the pricing is in Australian dollars... you will be able to buy it for much less in the States. They are a very good hub... they fit into both 5 1/2 and 3 1/4 inch bays on your case.

Good luck!

Probably not. 2.0 is still too new and there arent many USB 2.0 devises out there. Yet.
