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.

How do I load scan disk pictures onto computer


If your PC has an SD card reader you can place the microSD card into the adapter that it came with and then insert it into the slot on the PC. The SD card reader will be a small slot usually at the front of the computer. If there is no SD card reader then place the microSD card into the gadget you use it with such as your camera/phone etc and connect the device to your PC using a cable the device came with. The cable will have a USB jack at one end that will fit into the USB ports at the front/back of your computer. Once your device is connected you can follow the on-screen instructions to access your pictures.

I cant figure out how to use the memory card reader, whenever I plug it into the computer nothing shows up. What do i do?


Make sure that the memory card is properly seated inside the card reader.
Try different cable.
Verify with the manufacturer, if this card reader is a Plug-n-Play or if you need to install a driver to the computer.

Try connecting it to different computer. Or try different types of memory cards (the cards should be supported).

If same problem occur, you need to contact the reseller, because the card reader could be defective.

Good luck!

hi,
Infact front USb ports are connected with the card reader it self.If you are havingthe separate connectors then you will have to connect those to motherboard to make those USBs to work.

You can get any 9 in one card reader from nearest hardware vendor and deploy it.

thanks

We have an Hp computer. The memory reader in the


Hi Larry,
There are a few likely scenarios that would cause your card reader not to work.

1. The cable inside the computer that connects the front-panel card reader to the motherboard has come loose. You can check inside the case to make sure the cable is tight and connected. You should do this with the computer turned off, and turn it on when you're done.

2. The card reader itself has gone bad and stopped working. If this is the case, you'll need to either contact the manufacturer for repair, or you can go out and get yourself an external USB card reader for cheap.

3. The card reader is functional, but there's something wrong in the operating system that prevents the cards from being read, because the operating system doesn't know how to address the card reader. This can usually be fixed by re-installing drivers and software for the card reader.

Tower will not boot or communicate with monitor


Don't throw out that computer or replace any components just yet.

After much trial-and-error, I finally figured out the solution for this common issue with certain HP Pavillion models. It turns out to be a design flaw with the front-panel memory card reader. Somehow the card reader's firmware gets scrambled, and it prevents the computer from booting. You can test this on your machine by temporarily disconnecting the card reader cable at the motherboard header. Voila - I'll bet you $1 that your computer will now boot!

The solution is buried deep inside this HP tech support document. The card reader firmware needs to be reset.

Here\'s how to fix it once and for all:

1) With the computer power unplugged (duh), open up the case & disconnect the card reader cable at the card reader itself - NOT the end that connects to the motherboard header. Make sure the cable end is not touching any metal components before proceeding to step 2 (another duh).

2) With the cable still disconnected, fire up the computer. The tech support doc says to let it boot into Windows and stay there for about 5 minutes.

3) Shut the computer down and reconnect the cable to the card reader.

4) Turn your computer back on - your memory card reader will work and, most importantly, the computer will no longer hang at POST!

I suspect that when you fire up the computer without the cable connected, the card reader is designed to reset its firmware by grounding out through the case - sort of like a CMOS Reset jumper on a motherboard.

I hope this solution is helpful to others.

JohnB
