Z240 internal usb header and updated Maintenance & Service Manual

Z240 Tower
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

It appears that newly shipping Z240 Tower workstations DO NOT have an internal USB header anymore?  The System Board Overview graphic in the Maintenance & Service Guide (Oct 2015) shows #7 as a USB 2.0 internal header.  However, the location where the header should be on the system board is actually a 1x6 pin header (P150) listed as "MEDIA".  The other USB 2.0 Header, #5, is taken up as the front USB cable.

 

So is there an updated manual that shows what is actually on the system board?  The Z240 Tower QuickSpec is dated March 2016, so I'm hoping there is a newer manual out there somewhere.  

 

Any idea what the P150 MEDIA header is for?  Is this for the old media card readers?  I have the optional SD card reader, but that is attached to #8 which is the internal USB 3.0 header.

 

Any way to attach deveices that need an internal USB 2.0 header?

Z240 internal usb header and updated Maintenance & Service Manual

I guess I'll reply to myself in case anyone else stumbles across this issue looking for help.  It appears the 6 pin media connector is just a USB header with only one USB port and a couple of extra pins.  I attached the lower half or the USB internal connector (the side with the 5 pins) to the first 5 pins of the 6 pine "Media" header on the Z240 system board.  Pin 1 on the cable connector to pin 1 on the system board.

 

This appears to work so far.
