Tip

International Calling Through The Internet Using Your Local SIM Card


The idea of getting your Local SIM card to call Internationally through the Internet.<br /> The idea would be simple. First, to get the SIM card registered to a single user with his personal information and signature in it. The SIM card would be there mainly to serve as your pass. Whether you are using your PC, laptop, or your smart phones this would be held possible. It would work more of like any of those current VOIP services. It just uses your SIM card to connect to your server while you are connected to a totally different Internet Service Provider<br /><br />Read more: <a href="http://bizcovering.com/business/international-calling-through-the-internet-using-your-local-sim-card/">http://bizcovering.com/business/international-calling-through-the-internet-using-your-local-sim-card/ </a>

I want to install a internal memory card reader in my otiplex gx270


Not sure you have room... they do make a Card Reader that will fit in a Floopy Bay... you would remove the Floopy and Place this in there.
If you have an Open or Usable 5.5 Bay (size of your CD Bay) they make those as well.
Here is a location to see some Internal Readers:

I use a SanDisk ultraII 2.0GB disk in my Canon PowerShot camera. I want to put the SanDisk into my HP8530f but I am not sure if it fits one of the slots in the media center. Can i insert it into this...


The cards used by the Canon Sureshot are SD cards and very common. The HP 8530 if it has a card reader added as it is not standard according to HP is likely to support SD cards. I would however suggest to spend the extortionate sum of less than a fiver and buy one of the many card readers advertised on Ebay which will fit into your USB port. I have just bought several for less than a fiver including P&Pand they will read upto 92 different types of card. The following is the location on Ebay so just cut and paste it.
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/92-in-1-USB-2-0-Memory-Card-Reader-Writer-MMC-SD-M2-CF_W0QQitemZ220293045447QQcmdZViewItem?hash=item220293045447&_trkparms=72%3A1437|39%3A1|66%3A2|65%3A12|240%3A1318&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14

One final point. Wherever you buy one from make sure it will read SDHC cards which a lot will not. The above does.
Nope this helps.

Internal USB connector


You did not have to unplug the onboard USB ports.
Your OS should see the card reader and set it up, unless you are using Win98 or WinME. I would plug the onboard USB ports, then restart with the new internal card installed.

Imstalling internal card reader


Well, installing an internal card reader without a spot on the motherboard, is a little hard to do. I would suggest buying an external card reader. They are a little cheaper, and a lot easier to setup and use, since they just connect to a USB port which all computers have.

Motherboard


Are you trying to install the Dell Media Card Reader? If so then the other end of the ?FlexBay USB cable that plugs into the card reader goes into a small rectangular connector towards the back of the motherboard. Specifically orient as follows; place the computer on its side, the power supply to your left and the front of the computer facing towards you. Starting at the back of the motherboard next to the power supply follow the back edge of the motherboard till you come to the approximate center of the board. About an inch towards you there will be a rectangular connector the FlexBay USB cable end should fit into. If this isn?t the cable from the Dell Media Card Reader let us know and we?ll try to help, otherwise please don?t forget to rate this posting.
