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.

What is the right memmory that would fit for ecs mother board p4 1.8ghz?


You need the model number to tell for sure, but...

Look for numbers at the very end of the memory sockets for numbers WIHTOUT a letter in front, 184 is DDR1, 240 is ddr2. About 1/2 the boards do not have these numbers.

You can also try the business card trick using a regular US size business card, or make a piece of paper exactly 2 inches (51mm) wide.

With good lighting, look into the memory sockets. You'll see a 'nub' close to the middle of the socket. UNPLUG the computer, don't just turn it off. Turn the business card so the shorter edge goes into the shorter side of the memory slot, with one end all the way against the end, like it was a piece of memory.
Count how many pins are left between the edge of the card and the nub.
4 pins left means DDR, 9 pins left means DDR2.

DDR-400 will work in almost any ddr board, and ddr2-800 (aka PC-6400) will work in almost any ddr2 board.

Strangely enough, those also tend to be the cheapest speeds as well as the highest standard speeds.

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.

Propor place to plug in internal multi card reader


Most mother boards have an internal USB connector.
Have a read through *********** board manual it will describe all the connectors. If you don't have the manual you should be able to find it in the ASUS web site.

Also if you look really close at the Mother board and read the little white writing next to the connectors you may spot it.

I just took the lid of my pc to prove it can be done.
Mine is labled USB3 it has a block of 10 pins (male) and one is blank so it is really 9 pins. You mother board will be different to mine but have a look and see what you can find.

I'm installing a card reader that has 5 wire connector tto the mb. The old card reader has a 7 wire connector that fits the mb. Its an Asus m2n68-vm. Thanks


These card readers normally fit the auxiliary USB socket on the motherboard. They usually take up all nine pins, four on one row and five on the other with a 10 socket plug. One pin missing on the end of a row.Such card readers have an additional external USB port as well as card reader slots. If it is just a straight five pin plug but with four wires it just fits over one side of the nine pin USB socket on the motherboard. The black wire goes at the end with the missing pin.

Trying too install 4in1 card reader


If its an internal card reader, you should install it in the PCI slot. If it's an external card reader you should plug the card reader into the USB port. I need to know the brand and model of the reader so that I can give you more precise instructions.

Sai.

Internal memory card reader plug on the MB?


The memory card reader that you have is most likely running on USB, therefore you will need to plug it in to one of the USB headers on your motherboard. They usually are made for 2 USB ports so the connector for USB is 2 rows, but yours is just flat so it will fit anyway.
The USB plug and cable on the motherboard kind of look like this:

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?
