The fix is to use your CardBus and slip in some USB card there. Here's one -> http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=AUA-1420-BP&cat=CCD
I'm sure there are others out like that.
In closing, it will do no good to find a "cable from one USB to two USB connections." As such I will not respond if asked if a cable will do.
I have an external USB DVD/CD writer from DELL(PD01S). It is a USB device which has additional port as power source also.
Now my past laptop (Dell Latitude 400) which had that type of dual USB port to connect this external dvd writer is no more there and the new laptop does not have that dual power usb port to connect dvd writer.
Can someone please advise me how to hook up this DVD writer with my new laptop...some kind of USB converter to convert dual port to single port or some kind of connector.
Hope I am able to explain my problem well enough to seek your help.
Thanks and Regards
