Question about Computers & Internet
I have just bought an internal USB Card Reader, and the lead to connect the device to the motherboard has no colours on the individual wires - (this is a Sumvision Internal (drive bay) USB Flash Card Reader/Writer, which has no product code on any of the packaging or the manual!) The two identical ribbon cables to connect the device to the motherboard are all white, each with different markings. The manual simply gives the motherboard wiring diagram and says "connecting up shouldn't be difficult to tell". The five wires have the following markings 1st (or 5th!!) - small squares spaced at wide intervals along the wire. 2nd (or 4th) short oblong strips along the wire. 3rd wire - crosses along the wire. 4th (or 2nd) one inch (approximately) long lines along the wire, and the 5th (or 1st) no markings, but some text, which is small and indistinct, but some of which seems to read "200v PTI". Can anyone decode these symbols and relate them to the standard USB colours of red (or +5v), white (or Data-), green (or Data+) and black (or GND)?
Ok, you need to have a look at the connector head itself which need to be plugged into the motherboard. Once the card is plugged into the motherboard slot, you can actually connect the cable to any compatible port on the motherboard itself.
Please do not hesitate to let me know if you have any further questions.

The usb plugs are numbered for 2 usb on a plug like this
where the number one ..is the first ..and it is located at the edge of the motherboard..
in our case...a usb single port will be 2-4-6-8-10 where the 8 is the ground ..and 10 is just the over-current and common for both on the plug ( usb ports )and 9 (last in the right internal side) is the no pin ....one ..
so you have to plug that "thing " in either the usb 0 port or usb 1..so follow one of the lines..2(1st) 4(2nd) ...10(5th)
or the other one ...but with the 10(5th) not with the 9 cause that one is no pin one...
Practically numbered from the left to right with one at the left edge and numbered in criss-cross ..will be the way ..but cause we only need to port it in a usb ..just follow one line ..the usb 1..from the pin 2 ...10..the internal line from left to right ..one by one ..in order..with the 5th being the over current

Tips for a great answer:
is it a usb device
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down universal serial bus controllers you could see a yellow question mark?
right click to reinstall drivers
if you can see your usb drive but its not working
ports(com&lpt)right click update driver if this fails to fix the problem
check the USB leads that attach to the motherboard usually red white green black make sure they are securely seated and have no dust build up on them dust will cause static and a lot of unforeseen problems for a computer and its parts
click start control panel administrive tools ,computer management ,device manager look through all of your devices if you see a yellow question mark?or exclamation mark ! or red x
right click to reinstall drivers
hope this helps
