USB connection on a P6VXA motherboard.

Hi,

I want to connect an internal memory card reader (Mitsumi FA404M, powered via the USB cable) on my PC, which has a P6VXA motherboard. Therefore, I would like to connect it to the USB connection on the motherboard. The only problem is I don't know on which four (of the five) pins, available in either row, that I should connect to (there is nothing on the board identifying any of the pins). Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Are you trying to install the Dell Media Card Reader? If so then the other end of the ?FlexBay USB cable that plugs into the card reader goes into a small rectangular connector towards the back of the motherboard. Specifically orient as follows; place the computer on its side, the power supply to your left and the front of the computer facing towards you. Starting at the back of the motherboard next to the power supply follow the back edge of the motherboard till you come to the approximate center of the board. About an inch towards you there will be a rectangular connector the FlexBay USB cable end should fit into. If this isn?t the cable from the Dell Media Card Reader let us know and we?ll try to help, otherwise please don?t forget to rate this posting.

All of the internal card readers I've seen either: -have built-in media converters which in turn plug into standard connections (USB, Firewire, ect.). -have their own PCI card with an appropriate connector for your card reader. That card plugs into your motherboard. Is it possible you card reader is missing something or perhaps was designed for some other motherboard?

I'm not sure where the floppy drive comes in, but if you have usb connectors on your mobo then you can connect the 5 pin connector to half of the usb pins.  Try that and see what happens.

The internal USB cord is made for the memory cards, install the floppy ribbon for the floppy disk. Don't forget to attach the power also.

I'm trying to upload my pictures from my DXG-587V to my computer but every time I plug it into the computer, my camera shuts off and I can't get my computer to pull it up. Any suggestions??


Hi Beth,
The best i can suggest you is.. Turn off the Camera before you connect the USB Cable..
Try a different USB port on your PC to connect the Cable and once you have connected the Cable, Power on the Camera, it should work.

Hi i have a panasonic dmc fs7 but i cant find the cable to connect it to the pc, is there anyway to do it wirelessly?


No.The only way you can connect your camera to a computer is via usb connection cable (supplied) .Remove the card from the camera,then insert it into the card reader on your computer ..Be sure the memory card for your camera is compatible with your card reader.

3.5'' internal memory card reader/writer installation problem


Your reader/writer is set up for use on 2 USB ports (hence the 9 pin connector), one port for the reader and one for the externak USB port. This has nothing to do with the port version. The long and short of it is you need a card with a matching internal header. NEVER break off a pin! Some of these headers have reversed connectons so you probably broke of one of the data pins and runed that header's ability. Typically the readers like you have come with several cables, so that they can match the headers you have available. Older motherboards and add on USB cards did not use standardized header configurations aas you seem to have found out. Your best bet at this point is contact the manufacturer of the reader and find out what brand of add on USB cards they recommend and go with that. AND AGAIN NEVER REMOVE ANY PINS FROM A HEADER !!!

Mitsumi 7 in 1 card reader


There are two cnnections required on the back of the card reader.
One is for the Floppy drive. It is flat and wide cable.
The other is a black cable with a smaller connector. This is a USB connector that needs to be plugged into your motherboard.

These USB connections are usually near the bottom right of the motherboard where you connect the power switch and LED lights. They usually have 9 pins. See this link and loko at the third picture so see what i'm talking about.

If you don't have a USB connector on the motherboard.. you'll need to purchase an extension card or an adapter that will plug into a usb outlet on the front of back of your computer.

Best wishes...
