hello you all. im having trouble identifying an usb port and board for my external hard drive. ( Western digital 500 gb my passport )

my system ;
acer aspire 5250-0450
e-350 processor
320 gb hdd.
8 gb ram.
win 7 64-bit

i need to replace the horizontal dual usb board thats located on the right palmrest area. however my problem comes in to that i need usb ports that will fit my hdd. yes it may be easier to just get another external hard drive but i dont want easy. the usb port on my external hdd seems to be 3.0. however i cannot seem to find any that look exactly like it. the usb port itself appears to resemble a fork. it doesnt have any plastic on it ( which allows the external hard drive to fit perfectly in the usb port. )

also for those who respond to this please provide a picture of the usb port board showing the pins inside so that i can identify that the usb is the correct replacement.

thanks in advance.
