Media Card Readers

For whatever reason my card readers, on the front of the computer, are not being recognize. I understand that port 1394 is being shared with the card readers so I did not plug anything into this port. Also, not new devices have been installed since the problem started. Does anyone have any suggestions for a fix. Frank

Re: Media Card Readers

Yess use the ports in the back of the computer I had the same problem with my mouse before which was also usb port connection. The reason why I say to hook it up to the back usb ports is that it is built onto the motherboard and therefore it would get recognized alot quicker if you put it there if you find that whatever you have hooked up dont have alot of usb ports buy yourself a usb hub i bought one for 2.00 it does the trick when you are limited to usb connections

I have an Intel D845GVSR motherboard. The 4 back USB ports are enabled but the two front ports aren't. I also have a Creative Combo NS DVD ROM with card readers in it. My Computer guy enabled the card...

This is probably set in the BIOS. You need to reboot the computer and enter the Setup/BIOS to enable the ports. Otherwise they're physically disconnected in the case and you will need and expert to reconnect.

I put a sd memory card from my camera in my computer. the computer hasnt uploaded the pictures or done anything.

I guess you have a built in card reader? Is there any chance your camera SD card is SDHC? Some card readers including built in types and those that you connect to a USB port have trouble with the later and faster generation SDHC cards but are happy with plain old SD cards.
If you are using an external card reader, does it work in another computer? If it does work, then the problem is with your computer.
If you have a built in reader, can you borrow someones external card reader that you know and does work with SD and SDHC cards?
Can you try an older SD card in your current setup? If that works OK then it's the issue with SDHC that is your problem.
Easily fixed by buying yourself a $10-20 external card reader

Wher do i plug in a 7in1 card reader on a gigabyte ga-ep45-ud3p mother board

If, that's the keyword, IF that M-board has an available USB port on the inside, you can plug it in there. But that's really only good if that unit will then fit into an external slot on the front face of the PC itself.

Where do i plug a card reader into my pcchips a33g

Most card readers are driven by USB ports. The card reader connector should match the pins of one of the USB connectors on the MB.

I don't know where to plug in mycard readers on my ms 7142 ver.1 motherboard

I belive you would put it where your front usb ports are connected to the motherboard. You will have to give those up, but most after market card readers come with one on the panel

Where to connect card reader?

Easy, if you find where your front usb port is connected you'll see some odd ports that have 10 pins slots one of which has a missing pin, either in the lower left hand corner or in one of the center pin positions. Find the one that matches your generic (usb) card reader and plug her in. The card readers that come prebuilt in computers now are based on usb technology and fit into the same slots as the USB connectors. In fact if this is on a 915G it should plug into one of the JUSB1 or 2 slots.

Card reader connector

Open you're manual for the PC. Find an opened USB port & plug you're card reader on the pins. Match the pins with the card reader connector. Card readers can & do use different connectors. (USB, PCI & SATA). If you list the name & model of you're card reader, I can be more specific.
You should have received a small quick guide with the card reader.

The USB ports on the front panel allow convenience for devices which you might connect and disconnect from time to time (like portable media card readers for example, or USB-camera cables) so you don't have to reach to the back of your case. If you are going to use the front panel USB ports, make sure they are connected to the motherboard inside if you are not using a store-bought computer.

Let me know if that answers your question.
