All of the internal card readers I've seen either: -have built-in media converters which in turn plug into standard connections (USB, Firewire, ect.). -have their own PCI card with an appropriate connector for your card reader. That card plugs into your motherboard. Is it possible you card reader is missing something or perhaps was designed for some other motherboard?

3.5'' internal memory card reader/writer installation problem

Your reader/writer is set up for use on 2 USB ports (hence the 9 pin connector), one port for the reader and one for the externak USB port. This has nothing to do with the port version. The long and short of it is you need a card with a matching internal header. NEVER break off a pin! Some of these headers have reversed connectons so you probably broke of one of the data pins and runed that header's ability. Typically the readers like you have come with several cables, so that they can match the headers you have available. Older motherboards and add on USB cards did not use standardized header configurations aas you seem to have found out. Your best bet at this point is contact the manufacturer of the reader and find out what brand of add on USB cards they recommend and go with that. AND AGAIN NEVER REMOVE ANY PINS FROM A HEADER !!!

Connecting a card reader to the mB

Most multi card readers are usb, but not the external kind that fits in the back of the motherboard, the internal kind.
If you look at the edges of the otherboard you will see three small blue connectors. Those are internal USB connectors, it should say next to them. Plug it in the correct way round (it will only go in one way) into any one of the three.

Propor place to plug in internal multi card reader

Most mother boards have an internal USB connector.
Have a read through *********** board manual it will describe all the connectors. If you don't have the manual you should be able to find it in the ASUS web site.

Also if you look really close at the Mother board and read the little white writing next to the connectors you may spot it.

I just took the lid of my pc to prove it can be done.
Mine is labled USB3 it has a block of 10 pins (male) and one is blank so it is really 9 pins. You mother board will be different to mine but have a look and see what you can find.

I'm installing a card reader that has 5 wire connector tto the mb. The old card reader has a 7 wire connector that fits the mb. Its an Asus m2n68-vm. Thanks

These card readers normally fit the auxiliary USB socket on the motherboard. They usually take up all nine pins, four on one row and five on the other with a 10 socket plug. One pin missing on the end of a row.Such card readers have an additional external USB port as well as card reader slots. If it is just a straight five pin plug but with four wires it just fits over one side of the nine pin USB socket on the motherboard. The black wire goes at the end with the missing pin.

Trying too install 4in1 card reader

If its an internal card reader, you should install it in the PCI slot. If it's an external card reader you should plug the card reader into the USB port. I need to know the brand and model of the reader so that I can give you more precise instructions.

Sai.

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.
