It has to have power. Look for a header on the motherboard that has the same number of pins as your connector does. Its fairly simple.

    I also purchased this item and discovered my new SATA and USB motherboard does not have an IDE style floppy drive connector on the board at all. I mistakenly thought the one USB connection for this drive would connect the card reader AND the floppy drive. Alas, no manual in my box either. The card reader portion has a USB connector, but you have to get an IDE to USB adapter to actually use the floppy part of this drive. BOO! HISS! Misleading box makes you think it is probably an internal USB floppy drive unless you look very closely on the back, which I did not.

Can I use a Bytecc BT-144 usb external floppy disk drive with an iMac running OS 10.10.1?


I'm not a Mac tech, but I wouldn't see why not. Floppy drives are kinda old school now. You may need a driver for the floppy. Check online and see what you can find. Download and install it.

Or you may have to plug the floppy in, then reboot, to get the Mac to recognize it, especially with a USB port. Some old Windozz machines were like that...maybe your Mac too????

Mac OS is very close to Linux/Unix systems, which have awful support for floppy drives. That's another possibility.

If your windows machine can't read the disk, makes me think the floppy drive is bad or you have corrupted files on the disk. Try a couple known good floppy disks on the Windoz box and see what happens. Or another removable floppy drive. They cost $5 to $10 now.

I have a BYTECC BT-PCI-SATA 150 I/O controller card but it does not work with windows 7. Is there a driver available for this model?


I can't seem to find a product with the model number "BT-PCI-SATA" that you provided, on the Bytecc web site. You should shut off and open the computer and read the model info directly from the the I/O card to determine the exact model card you've got.

Once you which card you have, you can download drivers directly from Bytecc. There appears to be very limited support listed for both Vista & Windows 7 OSes however. If nothing else, you'll be able to download the latest version of the driver - that may support Windows 7 - without specifically stating that it does.

If you're trying to install Win 7 to boot from a hard drive connected to this controller, it may work if you supply the expanded driver on USB, floppy, etc. when prompted for a SATA driver. Bytecc only offers an email address for tech support, so you might want to send them a detailed note about the problem at: info@byteccusa.com

Hopefully, this helped - good luck!

Installation of BT-146


Yes, you need to plug in a 4 pin FLoppy Molex connector. Your power supply should have at least one. The power connector is right next to the Floppy Drive connector.

Also, the Floppy connector goes in with pin 1 (The red stripe) to the left looking at the unit from the back (furthest away from power).

There is no manual to speak of.

Mitsumi 7 in 1 card reader


There are two cnnections required on the back of the card reader.
One is for the Floppy drive. It is flat and wide cable.
The other is a black cable with a smaller connector. This is a USB connector that needs to be plugged into your motherboard.

These USB connections are usually near the bottom right of the motherboard where you connect the power switch and LED lights. They usually have 9 pins. See this link and loko at the third picture so see what i'm talking about.

If you don't have a USB connector on the motherboard.. you'll need to purchase an extension card or an adapter that will plug into a usb outlet on the front of back of your computer.

Best wishes...

There is a white cable fixed to the drive that appears to have


The 7 pin connector is for the media card readers and needs to be plugged into a USB header on your motherboard. Not all motherboards have this header, so consult your motherboard manual. You may have to connect it in place of front USB connectors on your PC case.

The card reader will work without a separate power connection. The power connection is for the floppy drive only, and IS required for the drive to work. You should be able to find the appropriate connector on your power supply.

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.
