Is it possible to replace the older USB 1.1 connectors with 2.0 USB connectors on an Antec Performance Plus enclosure?

If so, how and where do I find the correct replacement parts?

Thank you for your reply.

I have already added a card reader from Directron which also supports USB 2.0, and it works very well. I just wanted to be able to use the case connectors since they are very convenient.

Thank you.

I did connect the case connectors to the motherboard, and the m/b does support USB 2.0. But when I plug something into the case connectors, I get the message, "This device could perform faster."

I know it's a minor issue, but I wanted to be able to use the case connectors. It appears there is some minor circuitry inside the case which limits it to USB 1.1. I am considering trying to salvage the circuits and connectors from a small external USB 2.0 port, and installing it into the case. I though perhaps there were upgrades to the case from Antec.

Probably it isn't worth the effort to try to replace it with salvaged parts.

Thank you.
