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.

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 !!!

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.

Memory card slot broken with damage to pins Acer Aspire 2920


Hi there
I'm a PC technician and i have come across this problem before with built in card readers and i can usually fix the problem myself.
It sounds like Acer are just trying to swindle more money from you.
Warranty is supposed to cover hardware up to a year and should be their responsibility to repair.
Can you tell me just what they said to you?

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:

Motherboard


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?
