Dynex Mini Card Reader

I cannot get this to work on my mac laptop.  I have it plugged in, nothing pops up.  The CD is too small to be sucked in by my cd drive, and I cannot find the drivers online that will actually work.  Any help would be amazing.

    Dynex card reader are a rip off! I been trying for several days to get it to work.I am running windows and one thing good about windows is when to add a device the wizards usally installs the drivers without a cd.I tryed to install the drivers from the cd that came with the reader and it will not load for nothing! When iI called for support I got the run around!!.I would never buy another product from Dynex as long as I live. They should be under investigation for selling card readers that do not work!!

I had this problem & after getting hung up on by dynex support and best buy I figured it out myself. 1-go to dynex site and download driver for mac this file will be named something like DX-CRMN1 will be encrypted and will open up a document with only symbols if you don't have a decompressor or expander. 2-You will need to download the stuffit expander at 3- once you download that open the expander which will open a window with a blue circle and four arrows around it. DRAG THE DYNEX SETUP FILE INTO THE CENTER OF THE BLUE CIRCLE 4-After a few seconds a file will appear on desktop labeled something like Alcor generic (if thats not the name for you just look on your desktop for a folder that wasn't previously there) 5- at this point put your memory card into the card reader and the lights should start flashing on the front and the card will be recognized. At this point iPhoto opened and I was able to import the photos.

Double click on the drive that pops up when you plug the card into the card reader. You will have to navigate the folders to find where on here the pictures are stored. This can change based on the camera you have (assuming you got the pictures on there via a camera), typically can be found in a DCIM folder or something similiar.

The unit is plug and play, the CD contains user manual and windows only software that allows you to change the appearance of the drive created when you plug in a card.

Trying to install Dynes 5 in 1 memory card reader/writer on my Mac running 10.6.4 Can I put the small disk in my laptop drive - it is a slip in slot

If you're worried, put the small CD-ROM into some other computer, and copy the entire contents to a full-size CD-recordable disk (or to a USB memory-stick).

Then, carry the CD-R (or the memory-stick) to your computer.

I have connected my dynex card reader and downloaded everything that the cd that came with the product but when I connect the card reader i am not able to access anything that is on my card.

This device doesn't need any software to work - al you need to do is to plug it it an USB plug and it will be automatically recognized as a new external hard disk. To use it all you need to do is to put a card in it and copy/paste to and from it all the files you want.

Try rebooting and see if it shows up properly. If it doesn't, there could be a conflict with driver letters.

Right-click My Computer and choose Manage
Left-click Disk Management
See if your device is listed there. If it is try assigning it a new Drive Letter Right-click and choose Change Driver Letter and Paths.
Click Change.
Choose a new drive letter, problem something lower than E.
Click OK.

Unplug and reattach your device and see if it will work properly.

The Cd is too small for my MAC


Yeah, if you just plug it into the computer and insert a card, the drive pops up on your screen. The CD is not required (thank God) and it WILL GET STUCK, so don't try to insert it. (I did...took me 15 minutes and some very small tweezers to get the stupid thing out!)
