Installing Optex Memory Card Reader

Dear Experts

I have an Optex Memory Card Reader OSDRDR that fits in the USB Port. I have Windows 98SE. Running the installation on it's own Windows 98SE cannot find a driver. There is the other option of selecting one but I don't know which one, and have been warned by clicking a couple that the driver does not match the device and it might not work correctly. I visited the mfr. website. and saw under ''Support'' there were Drivers for Windows 98. So, not knowing if that was the ''fix all'' for both versions of Windows 98, I tried, and from the log report- it said: ''Setup detected an incorrect version of Windows.'' And there were more errors and problems throughout the rest of the report. -Installation was unsuccessful. So, my question, is there a driver for this device, either somewhere in Windows 98SE- and how would I find it and install it- or is there one the web, and where might that be?

You should email the company and ask about this specifically. Sometimes the drivers they show don;t work or require something else to be loaded, such as a specific .Net framework version.

I have a possible solution, so simple but took me 5 hrs to figure it out. Plug in your optex, go to control panel and click 'add hardware'. The wizard will add and the pictures popped up right away. Duh!

I'm running windows 7 32bit and want to install a SATA port expander but there are no instructions on doing it without makeing the a RAID aray.

You should have posted the model of what you want this on, usually the reason is to add RAID so its faster.

You could use USB 3.0 ports for your drives and get the same speed you will get from Sata 2 using HDD.

Try just plugging it in, run windows update, then go to ADMIN tools, computer MGNT, storage, disk MGT, see if you can see the added storage, then just Look for the unpartitioned HDD usually represented by a black header
right click it and select format.
on the following instructions

Question mark at mass storage adapter it says no driver installed. for gateway mx6453

There are a few drivers that may need to be installed.
Click Here to go to the download page for your model.
Once there, bookmark the website, as you may need it in the future.
Second, download the "Chipset" driver - install it by double clicking on what you downloaded, then after it finishes installing - reboot your computer. (THIS SHOULD FIX IT)

Check to see if the problem is still there.. if so, try the following drivers from that website:
Card Reader Driver (TI
Card Reader Driver (Gateway

no to the firefox question. try the stick in a different usb port to make windows "relearn" to read it. if it won't it may just be failing (going bad).

Usb 2 card is only working at low speed after reinstalling windows xp. How can I get it to go to high speed? NEC 4 Port USB 2.0 PCI Controller Card

Make sure that you have the proper driver installed for your USB interface. Your motherboard should have come with a CD, or you can go to the motherboard manufacturers website and download the latest chipset drivers.

Once they are downloaded, install them and re-start your PC. Windows XP will then recognize a whole set of new components and allow your card to run at higher speeds.

You are looking for the PCI Bridge driver in particular, but I would recommend installing ALL the drivers that are available from the motherboard manufacturer.

Can't read SM 128 card on Vista or XP

The solution was that the SmartMedia card I was using seems to have been corrupted. It works perfectly well in my device to record music, but cannot be read through either of my computers. However, another SmartMedia Card does work and I have been able to download files, so it must be the card. The manufacturer of the MRS-4 recording device, ZOOM, say that they know of no way to repair the corrupted card.
Best wishes,

Trying to trainsfer program from my computer to the tevion memory

Place the flash drive (mem stick) into the USB port of the computer. Copy the files to it. Remove it from the computer and put it into the USB port of the other computer. Copy the files from the flash drive to the computer hard drive.
The memorystick (flash drive) will show up as another disk in File Manager/Windows Explorer, and disappear when the device is removed.

You cannot transfer already installed games from computer to computer, only the files. The game must be installed from the original CDs in order to function.

You can transfer documents, music, pictures, etc.

System freeze

The issue was resolved by uninstalling SP3. I uninstalled SP3 and the USB PCI card and rebooted. When SP2 reinstalled the device it installed the corect driver (5.1.2600.2180) and everything is now functional. Have no idea why the correct driver was not in XP SP3.
