Question about PC Desktops

I recently lost my usb cable for my nikon d40. I then discovered the port on the front of the computer for the SD card, but whenI put the SD card in, my computer does not even show it. Rebooting my computer does not fix the problem.

I have a Quantaray SD card reader, I put a SD card in it and it doesn't work. I guess I need a driver or software in my Windows 7


Are you sure it's an SD card? If it's larger than 2GB then it's actually an SDHC card and won't work in devices designed only for SD cards.

ACER T690 "where does the sd card reader cable attach to the motherboard?


Motherboard installed in computer case, look at the bottom edge of the motherboard.

Now I need your eyes

Underneath that long white PCI slot at the Bottom, (There are 2),
is a Purple rectangular header. Two rows of pins.

To the right is another rectangular header, but this time in Blue.
Look below them on the motherboard. Towards the outside edge of the motherboard. Do you see USB next to either of them?

The Card Reader just attaches to a USB header. The rectangular header actually supports TWO USB ports.

This is why one of those headers may have two USB cables hooked to it, and go to two separate USB ports on the Front Panel of the computer.

The other USB header would be for the Card Reader.

Looking even more to the right, there are two Yellow headers, that I'm SURE are USB headers. Looks like one long header, but it isn't.

I COULD be mistaken about the Purple header, or Blue header.
One might be for IR Remote.

At any rate, again, I need your eyes. What is silkscreened on the motherboard, under those headers? Purple, Blue, and Yellow?

Unless just one plug connector, is unplugged from one of those headers. (Two cables go to Card Reader, and end in one plug connector, that plugs into the motherboard)
Then you would know by the process of simple elimination.

Note how in the two rows of pins, there is one missing in the corner.
5 pins on one side, 4 pins on the other side.
The missing pin is the KEY. That is how you orient the plug connector.

Lost connection from computer to camera


Sounds like the camera is shutting off because of a bad battery. Make sure the cables between the camera and computer are in good.

You can always purchase a card reader for under $20 that will allow you to take the SD Card out of the camera and put it into the reader that plugs into the computers usb port.

SD card not recognized. Card has pictures from my Canon camera. Attempting to put the pictures from the card to my sister's Compaq Presario SR2050NX Desktop. I put it in the SD drive and nothing...


The driver for the SD card slot may not be installed.
The other option is to insert your SD card into a USB card reader and then connect it to the USB port on the computer. This computer will see this as an external USB storage device and then you can copy and paste the images into the computer.

Were do i put an sd adapter


depends.. what kind of adapter? if its a USB adapter you plug it into the usb port on your computer (rectangle plug most have atleast 1 in the front now) and the card goes into the adapter. now if your talking a sd card reader they have usb ones which above would apply. if it is internal it is usually either 3 1/2 inch or 5 1/4 inch and would go into the respective empty space in the face of your computer then plug into the motherboard on a set of USB pins. if your not sure find a local computer repair shop and consult them. they can help better with physically seeing your computer and what your trying to do

DO I REALLY NEED A FIREWIRE CARD?


If your camera is Firewire, iLink,or IEEE 1394, then you need Firewire support or a Firewire card.

If your camera has a USB symbol, or says USB anywhere in the manual, you can use USB for the functions it allows.

There is no USB to Firewire or Firewire to USB without the use of an advanced device.

PRINTER PORT FOR HP A6230N


I am sure it came with USB ports, most design nowadays expect you to buy USB enabled printers.
So I advise you buy a USB - CENTRONICS or USB - SERIAL cable depending on the type of printer you have.
You will connect the USB end to your computer and the other end to your printer.
If your printer is fairly recent, you might even have a USB port on it, so check.
HTH.
