Need to know where to hook up the card reader and 2nd HD. I have an ASUS M2N68-AM motherboard and I was looking for a schematic for this board to tell me where I can safely hook things up.
I assume you have an external card reader with a USB connector. If that's the case, you plug the device into an existing and available USB port, either on the front or back of your PC, or side or back of your notebook.
If it's an internal one, then you should find an available power connector from the power supply, and you will probably need to remove a plate in your PC case to install the device.
Regarding the second HD, any connector on the motherboard will usually only accept its own matching connector from the new device.
If your HD is SATA, then you probably need a second data cable, since the power supply comes with two SATA power cables.
It should be connected next to the existing and identical connector for your existing HD, assuming it's also SATA. It the latter it's an IDE type HD, then you should try to find a matching set of connectors (usually two), and attach the data cable to either one. It does not matter which one you choose in this case, since your PC is already booting from the IDE HD and will consider the second HD as additional storage, not as your boot drive.
