Easy, if you find where your front usb port is connected you'll see some odd ports that have 10 pins slots one of which has a missing pin, either in the lower left hand corner or in one of the center pin positions. Find the one that matches your generic (usb) card reader and plug her in. The card readers that come prebuilt in computers now are based on usb technology and fit into the same slots as the USB connectors. In fact if this is on a 915G it should plug into one of the JUSB1 or 2 slots.

Seach by model and number, and select your windows system.

Check also the bios settings.

Try also to find the manual.

Can't find the second set of pins for my USB drive


According to the manual, if you have front panel USB, use the pin set labeled USB3 for these connections. The USB3 connector is located between PCI slot 1 and 2. If you are already using this for the connector labeled 1394....1394 is for FIREWIRE interface and this mainboard does not appear to support it. Be careful of that connection unless you are absolutely sure of yourself.

Where on the reader do I insert an Olympus xd picture card (M512 MB) ?


An USB memeory card reader should have several slots to insert the various memory cards.
You insert the memory card into the correct slot on the card reader and then connect the CARD reader with the USB cable into the USB port on your computer.
The computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then copy the photos off the memory card into your computer.

I have an Intel D845GVSR motherboard. The 4 back USB ports are enabled but the two front ports aren't. I also have a Creative Combo NS DVD ROM with card readers in it. My Computer guy enabled the card...


This is probably set in the BIOS. You need to reboot the computer and enter the Setup/BIOS to enable the ports. Otherwise they're physically disconnected in the case and you will need and expert to reconnect.

I put a sd memory card from my camera in my computer. the computer hasnt uploaded the pictures or done anything.


Hi,
I guess you have a built in card reader? Is there any chance your camera SD card is SDHC? Some card readers including built in types and those that you connect to a USB port have trouble with the later and faster generation SDHC cards but are happy with plain old SD cards.
If you are using an external card reader, does it work in another computer? If it does work, then the problem is with your computer.
If you have a built in reader, can you borrow someones external card reader that you know and does work with SD and SDHC cards?
Can you try an older SD card in your current setup? If that works OK then it's the issue with SDHC that is your problem.
Easily fixed by buying yourself a $10-20 external card reader
Cheers,
Steve

Is there a way to attach mutimedia card reader to gateway micro atx motherboard


I'm not sure which model number you have, but you are able and have USB ports on your computer, then the answer is yes. You can do it two ways: One way (simplest way) is to buy an external multi-reader that plugs into a USB port. The second (More permanent), is when you open up your case and look at your motherboard, you should see a white cable that is connecting to your front-mounted USB ports. Follow it back to the motherboard and see if you have another slot to put another cable in for you multi-reader (and make sure you have a spot available in the front of your case to put the multi-reader). If you don't have a spot, or another plug, then go to newegg.com and buy an internal reader with at least one or two USB ports, and replace your existing front USB port.

I would like to install a internal card reader with a usb port.


Those wires go into an internal USB extension connector - which your motherboard doesn't have. Get a PCI USB card and connect them to it - this way you will also get USB2.

Connecting a card reader to the mB


Most multi card readers are usb, but not the external kind that fits in the back of the motherboard, the internal kind.
If you look at the edges of the otherboard you will see three small blue connectors. Those are internal USB connectors, it should say next to them. Plug it in the correct way round (it will only go in one way) into any one of the three.

Card reader connector


Open you're manual for the PC. Find an opened USB port & plug you're card reader on the pins. Match the pins with the card reader connector. Card readers can & do use different connectors. (USB, PCI & SATA). If you list the name & model of you're card reader, I can be more specific.
You should have received a small quick guide with the card reader.
