Fist choice would be to get a 5V motor.

Second choice would be to buy or construct a dc to dc converter.  Google that and see if you come up with anything that looks useful.

Remember that the usb port will only supply 1/2 amp safely.

Have you got a spare MOLEX connector inside the case? It'd be much easier.
