Connecting USB Devices to the Computer
USB are the initials of "Universal Serial Bus". When you
connect a USB device to your computer, it is detected and
configured automatically by the system. If your computer
has several USB ports available, you can use any of the
ports. Some desktop computers may have USB ports to the
rear for the more long-term connections and further USB
ports at the front for connections that change often.
It is not possible to confuse the ports. If a USB device is
connected to another USB port, the operating system will
install the driver again if necessary and the device will be
ready for use.
The USB extension cable and the network cable have a
smart cable-winding mechanism. By using this mechanism
you can have the connection cable at your required length.
To do this, pull gently on both ends of the cable at the same
time until the required length is reached. When you stop
pulling, the winding mechanism pulls the cable in a little
from both sides until it locks at the next ratchet.
To wind the cable in, carefully pull on both ends again. The
ratchet is released and the cable winds itself back into the
housing. To ensure the cable winds up correctly, release the
connectors after the cable is wound-up completely.
