About USB Adapters
Your frustration rises as you look vainly at all of the USB ports on your computer and realize that there is not one that fits the plug that you want to use. You need a USB adapter that converts the mini USB that you have into standard USB 2 that you can plug into one of the ports. Every sort of USB adapter that you might need is available on eBay in new or used condition, from the simple mini USB adapter that just changes the size of the plug, right through to a SATA to USB adapter that makes it possible to connect external 2.5-inch hard drives directly to your computer via its USB ports. With all of the different sorts of devices that you might have, the most practical choice is a USB adapter kit that converts a variety of different shaped plugs to standard USB, all in one unit, ensuring that you are always connected.
