hey all..

I installed a SIIG 4 port USB bay hub in the pc's 3.5 internal device bay.

problem.  the hub is not very well secured in the bay.  it slides back
inside the pc if I push in a usb connector in.

and due to the way its designed, only 2 (rear of the bay) of the 4
screws can be used.

any suggestions on how to fix this?

thanx all

Either tighten those 2 screws more, or put something in
behind the hub to keep it from sliding.  For example drill a
hole right behind it in the bay side and slip a bolt and nut
it.  That is, if there isn't already a hole behind it you
can use... if the hole is too far back, put an L-bracket or
something similar in.  Even easier  would be a piece or two
of thick double-sided foam tape on the wall of the bay
behind it, but it may not be as secure if the case is
low-tolerance and/or flimsy.
