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's simply to small, i already inserted it and had to take it to the mac store to get it out! and If so many people have this problem there should be a solution in the handbook. How else can I upload the photos

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.

Double click on the drive that pops up when you plug the card into the card reader. You will have to navigate the folders to find where on here the pictures are stored. This can change based on the camera you have (assuming you got the pictures on there via a camera), typically can be found in a DCIM folder or something similiar.

The unit is plug and play, the CD contains user manual and windows only software that allows you to change the appearance of the drive created when you plug in a card.

Trying to install Dynes 5 in 1 memory card reader/writer on my Mac running 10.6.4 Can I put the small disk in my laptop drive - it is a slip in slot


If you're worried, put the small CD-ROM into some other computer, and copy the entire contents to a full-size CD-recordable disk (or to a USB memory-stick).

Then, carry the CD-R (or the memory-stick) to your computer.

Driver missing for cd dvd drive


1st, do you have access to internet ? I'm assuming you don't have a utilities disc for your computer, and that it's a pc, not a mac.Go to control panel; add hardware;cd drive or dvd drive see if model is listed.(You may right click on computer;properties in order to find model).If it is listed, click update drivers...usually you will be asked if you have a disc, of which you don't...then you may get 2 options; choose from a list or for windows to check web for available drivers.
(Most cd/dvd drives work well with windows generic drivers)

Can't write on my cd-rw rewritable using dvd+-/rw and cd-rw


When you write to a CDRW chances are you are using a packet writing program such as "Drop to disc" by Roxio or INcd by Nero. I found out that Vista does not support such programs. If you are using Vista as your operating system you will not be able to save data this way. When I had to buy a new computer recently, I found out that I should use memory cards instead of CDRWs.

Need a driver for macintosh


If its a really old zip drive then its SCSI and not usb. It may even be parallel for a pc. To avoid having to deal with drivers or anything like that. You could probably find a cheap external USB zip drive. You dont need drivers for this, only for the older ones.
Also, you might go to an apple store and get some kid to burn a cd from it, if its just a one time thing.
Hope this helps!

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.
