The Cd is too small for my MAC


The CD containing the driver for the MAC is too small for my MAC and it may get stuck. Is there a website where I can get a download of the MAC driver? Dynex doesn't have it on their site. Thanks.

    I am also having the same problem.  I have an iMac and the CD that came with the 5-in-1 is too small.  I have been searching for an online download for the driver but I am unable to locate it. 


    Does anyone have an idea of how to get the driver installed the computer?

    same problem.  The online solution at dynex doesn't seem to properly download to mac either.

IT WILL STILL WORK!

Yeah, if you just plug it into the computer and insert a card, the drive pops up on your screen. The CD is not required (thank God) and it WILL GET STUCK, so don't try to insert it. (I did...took me 15 minutes and some very small tweezers to get the stupid thing out!)

Man am I glad I read this posting. My DX-CR6N 1-6 memory card reader/writer was not being recognized by my MacBook, like the Quick Setup guide said it would. But, I was scared to put the small CD into my MacBook drive, so I my hubby took the disk on his PC and saved all the info to a disk, so I could put into my drive. BUT there were no drivers for the Mac so it didn't help! Well, that's not completely true. I was able to access the User Manual that had more information on trouble shooting, so here's what it says, maybe one of these will help you.

"If memory cards do not appear in My computer or no icon appears on the desktop when a card is inserted into the reader (Mac OS), check the following:

  • Make sure that the USB cable is fully connected to your card reader. Unplug and reconnect your card reader.
  • Try a different memory card of the same type in the same slot. If a different memory card works, the original memory card should be replaced.
  • Disconnect the cable from your card reader and shine a flashlight into the empty card slots. Look to see if any pin inside is bent, and straighten pins with the tip of a small, pointed instrument, such as a mechanical pencil or jeweler's screwdriver. Replace your memory card reader if a pin has bent so much that it touches another pin.

If memory cards appear in My Computer (Windows OS) or Macintosh (Mac OS) but errors occur when writing or reading, check the following:
  • Make sure that the memory card is fully inserted into the slot.
  • Try a different memory card of the same type in the same slot. If a different memory card works, the original memory card should be replaced.
  • Some cards have a read/write security switch. Make sure that the security switch is set to Write Enabled (or unlock) --this one solved my problem.
  • Make sure that the amount of data you attempted to store has not exceeded the capacity of the card.
If no icon appears when a card is inserted into the reader (Mac operating systems), check the following:
  • The card may have been formattedin Windows FAT 32 format. Using a PC or digital device, reformat the card using the OS-X compatiable FAT or FAT 16 formats."
I hope this helps you!

I'm using Leopard and just hooked it up, put in the memory card & it worked.  I also was uncomfortable inserting that little cd into the Imac and couldn't find the darn drivers.  Thanks a lot, Dynex!

It will work!
Place the mini sd card into an sd adapter. Then it will recognize it.

This device is plug and play, the software allows you to edit the appearance of the cards icon in the file browser window (whichever one you happen to be using)

Posted on Jun 15, 2011

The device works on an older MAC operating system as well.  Definitely don't insert the disc.

A dvd is stuck in the drive. It resists all attempts at removal including the ''eject cd'' command in Open Firmware. Can I manually remove it?


The iMac (Slot loading) computer's disc eject mechanism is electrical instead of mechanical. To eject a CD-ROM disc at startup that contains system software, press the mouse button until the computer ejects the disc. If the disc does not contain system software, wait for the iMac to start up and drag the disc icon to the Trash.

If either of these steps fails to eject the disc, push the drive's manual eject button with a small, blunt object like a paper clip. This button is located to the right of the CD/DVD slot as shown in Figure 1. The computer must be turned on to eject a disc in this manner.


ht3007_1.gifFigure 1 Manual eject button

Once the disc is ejected, it extends just beyond its center hole so you can remove it from the drive. If the disc fails to eject, while holding in the paper clip, use another CD to gently push against the inserted CD. This gentle pressure may help to release the inserted CD.

Important: After ejecting the disc with the manual eject button, you must restart the iMac in order for the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive to work.

Can not use the cd - rom. It does not open automatically.


Hi arganamj,

I assume you are using an IBM based PC, not a mac (in other words any computer not a mac). If that is so, then your CD-ROM drive has a mechanical release, not electrical.

Simple way to determine if your CD-ROM is stuck is to insert a punch into the release hole next to the normal eject button on the CD-ROM's front faceplate. It is a small hole about 2 millimeters wide, and if you bend a paper-clip into a straight line it is very easy to press the spring-release mechanism and eject your CD.

If this does not work, then your device is clearly jammed or defective, and would need to be repaired or replaced.

If this does work, inspect the CD tray and make sure there is not a CD stuck inside of the drive. After you have done all of this, and the drive is still having problems ejecting from the machine, it's time to look at your drivers and make sure your computer is talking to your CD-ROM properly and knows how to use it.

You might have to download new drivers from your manufacturer's website in order to repair a broken or missing driver on your machine. I would suggest not attempting re-installation of drivers yourself unless you feel capable of removing windows operating system components.

If you still would like to try that if you are willing to re-install your drivers through trial and error, post again and we can walk you through some of the process of driver installation. Hope that helps.
