Here are a few possibilities to check: If you previously accessed, mounted or formatted the memory card while in root (Linux) or administrator (Windows), and are now trying to mount the card in some regular user account, you may not have sufficient "privileges" to mount the memory card.

Also, the format itself is VERY important with memory cards. For example, if you previously formatted the card in windows, and used a format unsuitable to the card (or the slot/reader) this will cause an i/o error report. Most memory cards below 512mb need to use FAT12 format (old DOS format). Most cards above 512mb work best with FAT16 format, but SOME can use FAT32. Some new, rare mobile phones can use NTFS media, but most card readers cannot use that format, and many cards will be unreadable, possibly even permanently damaged if you try to format them as NTFS or eclectic/now useless Mac HFS or HFS plus.

So check your phone specs, the computer's card reader specs, and the memory card specs, to make sure you have not created this type of problem. If so, mounting the card in Linux (as root) will usually allow you to identify the format if it is unconventional, and utilities there will let you repair it.

Where on the reader do I insert an Olympus xd picture card (M512 MB) ?

An USB memeory card reader should have several slots to insert the various memory cards.
You insert the memory card into the correct slot on the card reader and then connect the CARD reader with the USB cable into the USB port on your computer.
The computer will see this as an external storage device, you can then copy the photos off the memory card into your computer.

Is there and sd card slot anywhere????

I believe SD card readers plug into the usb, the sd card then plugs into the reader to read.
A permanent sd card slot can be installed in the small floppy disc tray and plugged into the mobo.
But the sd usb option is bone cheap.

Tne memory card slot is too big do i need some sort of adapter?


You've not been too clear but at a guess you've got an SD micro card and you PC has a standard SD card slot.

If so you need an adaptor, you can get some which convert the Sd micro into a standard or plug into a USB slot.

If not as I describe, you've a different kind of card, then you need a multi card reader, a box which accepts a whole bunch of different cards and connects to a usb port.

Have a look on ebay for a micro SD adaptor and/or a universal card reader. You don't have to buy from there but it will give you a good idea of what you're after and about how much one should cost.

If you want to go to a shop, more or less any PC shop should sort you out.

How do I use the memory stick of a Sony Ericsson K750i camera to my computer. What additional items must I purchase to transfer my photos?

If the camera does not have a USB connector to attach to the computer, you need a card reader, thay are about £5, check this one
If you do have a cable to connect the phone to the pc, you may just be able to plug this in and browse the phone for files to download.

Is there a way to attach mutimedia card reader to gateway micro atx motherboard

I'm not sure which model number you have, but you are able and have USB ports on your computer, then the answer is yes. You can do it two ways: One way (simplest way) is to buy an external multi-reader that plugs into a USB port. The second (More permanent), is when you open up your case and look at your motherboard, you should see a white cable that is connecting to your front-mounted USB ports. Follow it back to the motherboard and see if you have another slot to put another cable in for you multi-reader (and make sure you have a spot available in the front of your case to put the multi-reader). If you don't have a spot, or another plug, then go to and buy an internal reader with at least one or two USB ports, and replace your existing front USB port.

Propor place to plug in internal multi card reader

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.
