Dell Dimension 9100 PC Desktop problem

I have a Dell Dimension 9100, and the motherboard has 10 pin header for the
optional floppy drive. I am trying to install a Dynex Internal All-in-One
Card Reader, which has a USB 5 (1x5) pin cable. I was wondering if there
was a some kind a adapter or a "coupler" for the 5 pin to work w/ 10 pin
header, or is there other connectors i could work with...I would greatly
appreciate it if you could get back to me w/ a solution, thanks...

I'm not sure where the floppy drive comes in, but if you have usb connectors on your mobo then you can connect the 5 pin connector to half of the usb pins.  Try that and see what happens.

How to install a sd card reader on a Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop? no 4 pin usb on motherboard?


I managed to install a card reader on my Dell Dimension 8200.

The main problem is that the Dell motherboard does not have the correct USB pin. This is a 9-pin MoBo USB header.

The quick answer is I installed a USB card with an internal port.

Secondly I reverse mounted a powered 4-port USB hub in the spare 3.5" bay.

Third, I purchased 2 USB 5 pin male to usb leads...

You cannot buy a USB card with 2 internals and do away with the 4 port powered USB hub because the card reader does need to be connected to a powered USB port.

Dell Dimension 9100 - Motherboard & Compatible CPUs


Intel Pentium 4 Socket-T (LGA775) with Hyper-Threading or Dual-Core support, cache 1MB or 2Mb for 9100, or just 2Mb cache for 9150. I know of some of these machines having pentium D installed but I do not believe a Core 2 Duo is an option, whereas Dual-Core is. Good Luck!

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.

Installation help for dynex dx-crd12 all in one card reader


I would recomend installing the card reader this way. Shut off all programs that you don't need during the start up. When the card reader installs its kind of touchy, froze my computer a few times.

If you have blue 9 pin usb headers on your motherboard, consult your manual for this, or google it. Take the 5 pin connector, find the side with the red wire, face that side away from the side of the blue header with a missing pin. Make sure you connected to the row with 5 pins. After that you should be able to power up your computer and it will work.

If your computer doesn't reconize the card reader use the cd it came with.
