Hi, So she comes running to me today and shows me that both of her USB on her laptop have been completely destroyed, I mean one is just an empty hole and the other looks like it had been raped by a screw driver! She has no idea how this happened. The Laptop in question is made by either Acer or Advent (I don't have it with me now) and it doesn't have any expansion slots so a USB card is out of the question. The only other connections are the Ethernet socket and the SD card slot. I really dont want to open it up and solder new USB headers in if I can help it but does anyone know how to connect a USB device to one of the other connections? I have showed her how to connect the laptop to her home network and access the USB port of another computer which is fine but isn't going to be a possibility on the move. I have also considered a USB network hub but these require mains power and probably a router? Any help would be great, thanks.
