Using a USB device Universal Serial Bus (USB) is a hardware interface that connects an optional external device, such as a USB keyboard, mouse, drive, printer, scanner, or hub, to the computer or to an optional expansion product. Depending on the model, the computer may have up to 4 USB ports, which support USB 1.0, USB 1.1, and USB 2.0 devices.
Connecting a USB device CAUTION To prevent damage to a USB connector, use minimal force to connect a USB device. To connect a USB device to the computer, connect the USB cable for the device to the USB port. The operating system will issue a sound to indicate that a device has been detected.

Scanners, digital cameras, and digital camcorders often require a 1394 connection. The 1394 port, illustrated below, also supports IEEE 1394a devices.
