My case has 4 USB 3.0 ports in the front that have 2 20 pin connectors to plug into the mobo. My mobo however only has 1 20pin slot for usb 3.0

I bought the following expansion card but the OS is not detecting it (10.12.6)

Any advice?

The card uses an ASMedia chip to support USB3, which I believe is not supported under MacOS. So unless you can find MacOS drivers, forget about it.

Thank you for that.

I just returned the card. Where can i find a list of compatible cards to purchase so i can plug the 20 pin USB 3.0 cable and use the front USB ports?
