I don't want to force my USB port (which is rather easy to do, and may set fire to your computer[1]), so I'm rather careful when inserting a USB connector. The procedure often goes something like this:

  1. Try to insert, doesn't seem to fit
  2. Flip it over, try to insert, doesn't to fit again
  3. expletive
  4. GOTO 1 (50% chance)

How can I insert a USB connector (type A) correctly the first time? I don't want to force it.

[1]: Literally. I have seen this happen.
