It will depend on the model as not all laptops have them, they are norally found on the front of the laptop to the right of the lid release button.

SOURCE: dell precision not recognising usb 2.0

sounds not,  some of the older systems only have 1.1, Usb 2 is not all that old (about 2-3 years).
you can upgrade to USB2 bu adding a USB2 PCI card to your system, this would give you some ports on the back and it may be possible to link the ports on the front to the new PCI card to upgrade those as well (depending on how they are connected to the mobo)
you can get USB2 cards with a Pin header which would allow for a pin block connection.

SOURCE: internal USB connector

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.

SOURCE: Is there a place to insert a camera card? I found

No, the Dell Optiplex 760, Mini Tower, Desktop, Small Form Factor, or Ultra Small Form Factor, does not have a card reader.

Suggest you buy something like one of these, and have access to virtually any flash card, or memory card. (Just plug it into any available USB port)

SOURCE: how to install a sd card reader on a Dell

I managed to install a card reader on my Dell Dimension 8200.

The main problem is that the Dell motherboard does not have the correct USB pin. This is a 9-pin MoBo USB header.

The quick answer is I installed a USB card with an internal port.

Secondly I reverse mounted a powered 4-port USB hub in the spare 3.5" bay.

Third, I purchased 2 USB 5 pin male to usb leads...

You cannot buy a USB card with 2 internals and do away with the 4 port powered USB hub because the card reader does need to be connected to a powered USB port.

for more info see this...

Transfer pictures from sd card to files

First the pictures stored on your SD card are already files. There are many file types for graphic images I'm guessing you want to transfer the files on the SD card to your computer so you can work on them with Photoshop or other Photo Editor or maybe just print out hardcopy pictures. You will need a computer that comes equipped with a SD card reader slot. Then all you do is plug the card into the slot and the computer will treat it like another hard drive device and will assign a drive letter to it like E: or in my case J: At this point you can drag and drop the files on the SD card to folders on you PC. If you don't have a SD card reader slot then you will have to resort to other methods. Most modern digital cameras come with a special cable and proprietary software that will allow you to plug your camera directly into your PC through a USB port. My Canon SX 500 allows me to do this. This way you can transfer the pictures without having to remove the SD card from the camera.

How to transfer photos from my coolpix L20 camera to my computer? Thanks..

There are two easy ways to transfer photos.
1) Connect via a USB cable. The cable came with your camera. If you lost it, you can buy a new one on line or from Nikon. The cable has a small plug that goes to the camera and a large end that plugs into a USB port on your computer. Once the cable is connected, turn on your camera and your computer will recognize your camera's memory card just like it recognizes an external hard drive or other device. If you go to Explorer on a PC or Finder if you have a Mac, you will see it as a device. Open the device and the folder(s) it contains then copy and paste or cut and paste the jpg files from that location to a folder on your hard drive.
2) Transfer your photos directly from your SD memory card to your computer using either your computer's SD card reader or a USB external SD card reader that you can purchase on line for $20 or less. Open the battery compartment door and you will see the end of the SD card. Remove the card from the camera by pushing it in (it is spring loaded) and releasing. It will pop out. Insert the card in your card reader and your computer will recognize the card as if it were a hard drive or similar. Follow the instructions that I gave you for transferring the files above. Both methods can be simplified if you use software such as Nikon's Transfer NX.

How do I import photos from my camera?

There are two ways to import your photos.
One, your camera should have an sd card which you can eject and put into your computer. The sd card should have all your photos and videos in it. Typically the card is located near the battery and you can press down on it and it should pop out. You may also need a sd card reader or micro sd card reader if it doesn't fit in your computer.
Second, your camera should also have a usb port, whether micro or mini or whatever. It should have a port to connect to your computer through a usb cable. In this case, just connect your camera to your computer and it should show up on your computer like an extra drive where you can go in and see all your photos.
Also, the folder that holds everything is usually labed DCIM i believe.
Hope this helps.

Slide the switch from the LOCK position to the UNLOCK position, which is furthest away from the contacts. ALTERNATE WAY TO TRANSFER PHOTOS TO COMPUTER
If your photos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

How do i upload the pictures on this camera onto the computer? does it take a USB cord because i cant find where anything plugs into the camera besides where the charger goes? i dont have my charger on me...

Samsung say this has a USB 2 port. Maybe it is behind a door or has a rubber plug in it. It will be a mini-USB socket, not a big one like on the computer, and a lead should have come with the camera. If you are using a "charger" lead that plugs into a USB port on the computer, than that also serves as the USB connection.

People often find it simpler to remove the memory card from the camera and plug it into a cord reader on the computer to transfer files. Newer computers have card readers built in, but if yours doesn't, you can get a little SD card reader for a quid at Poundland. However, this camera uses micro-SD cards, so you will also need an adapter to get it to fit an SD reader slot. If you aren't using a card, then you will have to use the USB lead to transfer pics from the camera's built in memory.

Have lost the software for camera. how can we get the pics off?

The best way to download pictures to your PC is with a Card Reader that plugs into a USB port. You take the memory card out of your camera and plug it into the card reader, then plug the card reader into the PC usb port. This keeps you from running down the camera batteries while transferring pictures. You can buy these from just about any drug/discount store. You need to look for "USB Card Reader" and make sure it works with the type card you have. (Compact Flash, SD, Memory Stick, Micro SD...etc.)
