I can not find where to plug in the internal memory card readers on the mother board. The CPU fan went out and I had to unplug many cables to remove and replace it and that is the only cable I can not tell where it originally went. Everything on the machine works perfect now with the exception of the built in memory card reader. It is a black flat plug with 4 wires (black, green, white and red). It is my kids machine and they already have worked around this by using an external memory card reader but it would be nice to fix it and I hate a puzzle that can not be solved. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
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:

Re: Internal memory card reader plug on the MB?
More than likely if you cant find it on the mother board it is on a Pci card. Try looking at the different cards that are installed at a 90 angle from the motherboard.(they are plugged into the motherboard and when you look at the back of the computer you can see them as well)
If that doesnt work then post what kind of computer with what kind of mother board and i will figure out where it goes.
Hope this helps.

Hopefully you know by now that the message wanted you to push on the card to eject it. The pictures you want to retrieve...are they on the card or the internal memory? You can easily download from the card using a simple card reader. If you've ruined the mother board circuit on the camera, then you probably can't retrieve the pics from the internal memory. In retrospect, you should never use the internal memory on a camera. It's too small to be of any use and it usually causes no end of troubles.
Most multi card readers are usb, but not the external kind that fits in the back of the motherboard, the internal kind. If you look at the edges of the otherboard you will see three small blue connectors. Those are internal USB connectors, it should say next to them. Plug it in the correct way round (it will only go in one way) into any one of the three.
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.
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.
The main reason for CPU fan overworking or not working is due to the load we put on the syatem while operating.So,the first reason for fan not working may be due to the SMPS malfunctionality.Better check out for it.The reason if fan is working but Overworking is due to viruses is system.So go in for format
You did not have to unplug the onboard USB ports.
Your OS should see the card reader and set it up, unless you are using Win98 or WinME. I would plug the onboard USB ports, then restart with the new internal card installed.
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.
