Question about Dynex 5-in-1 USB 2.0 Mini Memory Card Reader

1 Answer

Just got back from best buy after spending $22 on the Dynex DX-CRMN1 Mini Memory Card Reader/Writer and I have installed the drivers, they're currently showing up in windows explorer. I inserted my memory card in to what i felt was the correct way so that it was snug in there.. Its hard to tell, since the directions don't tell you which direction or anything to insert it into the reader... It just warns you that inserting it the wrong way could damage it. Very helpful. I took my memory card back out and it still works in the camera, so I have no idea how to make this thing recognize my pictures. I'd rather avoid driving 30 minutes back to the best buy if its just a mechanical problem... I the card im inserting into it is a SanDisk Memory Stick PRO Duo from MagicGate... The way that seems to fit the best is when the gold conductors are facing up, with the beveled edge on the top right.. It goes in a certain amount and sort of gets snug, but whenever i try to access the drive it says to please insert a disk.. the light never comes on that indicates data is being read, transferred etc.. Also, the card can easily go deeper into the reader on either corner with not a lot of force... so this is extremely difficult to figure out how to properly insert this thing, especially when your "directions" just warn that you could damage the reader or card if you insert it wrong.. but give absolutely no directions on how to insert it.. Very confused... a couple picutres in the user manual would go a LONG way to helping people with this and probably prevent a lot of people from destroying their memory cards that have a lot of personal photos on them..

Dynex Mini Card Reader


I had this problem & after getting hung up on by dynex support and best buy I figured it out myself. 1-go to dynex site and download driver for mac http://www.dynexproducts.com/p-580-dynex-5-in-1-usb-20-mini-memory-card-reader.aspx this file will be named something like DX-CRMN1 Setup.fit will be encrypted and will open up a document with only symbols if you don't have a decompressor or expander. 2-You will need to download the stuffit expander at http://www.macupdate.com/info.php/id/20954 3- once you download that open the expander which will open a window with a blue circle and four arrows around it. DRAG THE DYNEX SETUP FILE INTO THE CENTER OF THE BLUE CIRCLE 4-After a few seconds a file will appear on desktop labeled something like Alcor generic (if thats not the name for you just look on your desktop for a folder that wasn't previously there) 5- at this point put your memory card into the card reader and the lights should start flashing on the front and the card will be recognized. At this point iPhoto opened and I was able to import the photos.
HOPE THESE STEPS WORK FOR YOU & LET'S NOT BUY ANYMORE CRAPPY DYNEX PRODUCTS.

Card reader installation!


The device wont be recognized by your computer until you insert a card. Plug a card into the reader, then plug the reader into the computer. You should hear a confirmation tone (if the card is formatted) and it should appear in my computer. No drivers or software are required as it uses a MSD (Mass Storage Device) interface.
