Hi, I?d like to install a media card reader (e.g. HP 468494-005) into the shared internal/external 3.5" drive bay of my HP Z240 SFF workstation but it doesn't fit. It probably needs a carrier of some kind, because the casing is just a bit too wide and there are no holes for the standard screws. I couldn't find any instructions on the HP website. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I have a "SanDisk Ultra CompactFlash" 4GB card and an internal card reader (HP desktop). When I insert the card into the reader, the green light above the slot turns on as if it recognizes the device, but it doesn't show up. Device Manager says that the driver is installed and working properly, and I have uninstalled it, reinstalled it, and restarted my computer. A system restore isn't really an option because it isn't my computer.

Any idea how I can fix this? Could it matter that I'm not on the Admin account on the computer?

I've searched for info on this topic but cannot get the direction I need so I'll post a question. I have a Dell Optiplex 330 a little more than a year old. I want to add an internal card reader so I can read CF, SD and other cards primarily from digital cameras. I bought one but it had a 4 or 5 pin USB connector on it and the only open connector on my motherboard is a SATA receptacle - no USB connections available.

The question is, are there internal card readers with a SATA connection available? Any input would be helpful. Thanks.

No there aren't, at least that I know of. Just get a PCI-E 1x USB add-on card and plug it in that. Example:
Or if you (only) have free PCI slots: Cheaper and does the same job...

I have a built in multi-card reader, seems to work fine. It shows up as 4 drives "G, H, I, J", and I only use "G". Is there a way to hide the other 3? Is there a way to change the drive letter(s)? Right clicking doesn't seem to give this option.

Look for Hard drives and click on it

I am about to upgrade to windows vista and I saw that vista can use flash drives as ram, kinda a middle ground between the ram and the page file on the hard drive.

I want to use the internal memory card reader on my laptop to host a memory card to do just this. How do I find the maximum speed of the card reader for different types of media.

I have a computer with an internal 6 in 1 flash card reader. It is supposed to read SD, CF etc. cards. Sometimes when I boot up, the drives do not show up in Windows Explorer and other times they show as "Removable Disk (K)" etc. Clicking View/Refresh in Windows Explorer does not always solve the problem. With external card readers, I would just pull the card out and put it back and It would be recognized. Obviously, this does not work with internal USB connections.

Another, probably related, problem occurs when the drives show up in Windows Explorer but Windows fails to recognize the flash card when it is inserted. Again, View/Refresh does not solve this problem.

I'm using Windows XP Pro SP2 and all updates. Any suggestions? Anyone with a similar problem?

For your info the pc is an old williamette p4 1.5 on an intel 850gb mobo that is not usb 2.0 capable, but the reader is supposed to be backward compatible so that shouldnt be the problem.

I'm looking for a Smart Card reader and USB hub combination to fit in a 5.25 bay. I found one but it requires three internal USB ports. I have those on my Asus A7V card. It also needs to Win98se to work. I have the first edition and had some trouble once trying to use the internal USB ports while connecting my current USB hub. It sounds like 98se supports the feature. Are there any simpler products or a nifty solution of PCI cards and such?

What do you mean by niftier? If you have USB on the motherboard as well as the smart card connector (which the A7V has) why would you want to go out and buy another one? Go to SOYO's web site, they have bays for smart card and USB in one unit.

I recently purchased a INT-AIN1-C internal card reader, I installed it, unplugged one of my USB internal ports to free up space to plug in the device, when you plug it in and try to power up the pc nothing happens it won't power up, unplug the device and the pc will power on, I took the unit back and exchanged it, and I'm still having the same problem. Any advice on what's happening, and what I can do to fix the problem?

A:INT-AIN1-C Internal card reader

I'm going to guess you're either connecting it improperly, or to the Firewire connection and not the USB connection. No way it should prevent the machine from powering up if it's connected properly.

With either the card reader or the USB cable to the camera plugged in. go to Start/Search and type devmgmt.msc Right click the devmgmt icon in the search results and Run as Administrator. In the Elevated Device Manager, are there any devices with yellow flags or under Universal Serial Bus controllers is there an Unknown device? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now remove the USB cable/device from the computer end and restart the computer. When the computer comes back up, plug the USB cable into a different USB port and not through a Docking Station or Hub.

There are only so many places for it to hide on the motherboard and if you can't find it, it isn't there. Actually, I looked up the manual and it doesn't appear to have an internal USB header. You'll have to install a PCI USB card with an internal header.

Hi, about a month ago, I bought a 1gb Sandisk Memory Stick Micro (M2) for my Sony Ericsson w580i. It worked fine on my computer. Then about a week ago, I popped in the memory card and the "phone card" drive that usually appears in "My Computer" was not there anymore. Also, even my phone couldn't read the card. So today I exchanged that one for a new one. Now, my phone can read the card, but my computer still cannot. I contacted Sandisk support, but that was not helpful. They only suggested that it was an internal card reader problem. I mean, this is just so weird. It was working perfectly at first. So I wouldn't think that it's a compatibility issue. But then again, I don't know much about computers. Does anyone have any idea specifically what my problem is, and is there a solution?

Whenever I plug my internal card reader into my motherboard, it slows down my boot quite a bit. By boot, I mean before I get the option to enter my BIOS or select which device I want to boot from. My card reader is this one: - Accessories, Card Reader, Internal Card Reader, RCR-IC002

I've tried switching which USB port it's plugged into on my motherboard, making my PC boot into my HDD before any USB devices, and uninstalling then reinstalling the drivers. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks in advance.

A:Internal Card Reader Slows Boot

It depends on when this issue occurs after you push the button: POST, BOOT, or STARTUP.

P.O.S.T (Power On Self Test) is literally when the BIOS "finds itself" and reads and checks the instructions in the CMOS chip. The first instruction is to emit a single BEEP when finished. The next instruction is to run the BOOT routine.

If the device is causing the POST to fail then I would guess an electrically defective device.

During the BOOT routine the BIOS maps the RAM, then finds, enumerates (names), and initiates (activates) the devices connected to the board, then goes looking for Boot Devices to start, in that order.

If the device is causing the BOOT to fail then it could be that the BIOS is too old to recognize the device, the device is defective and will not initiate, or the firmware in the device is bad or corrupted and does not send the proper identifier to the BIOS to read.

After the BIOS has completed it's BOOT routine and has found an active boot device it will run the STARTUP of the OS or whatever program it finds. Then, and only then, do the device's drivers come into play. Your device is failing before STARTUP, so forget about it's drivers.

Let us know whether the issue occurs before POST or during BIOS BOOT.

EDIT: When you say "slows down my boot quite a bit", what do you mean? 10 seconds? 60 seconds? More?

A:USB Hub and Internal Card Reader not working properly...

USB 2.0, Hi-Speed USB FAQ
"How does a USB hub slow down devices?
A USB hub has to re-calculate the time left before the next sof (end of the uframe); the small extra delay added by the hardware hub could make the transaction not handled as fast as a device directly connected to the host. If several devices are connected on the USB hub and working in parallel (for example, a webcam + a USB flash drive + a mouse), then the USB bandwidth is shared among the devices usage. "

Though the USB port on the reader works fine. This is the factory installed Card reader. I connected a USB connected card reader to the USB port on the Case card reader and it works as advertised. Have never been able to get the factory card reader to work under Win 7.

Device is: Akasa AK-ICR-01 Internal Card Reader.

See PC Specs for other hardware. Running XPSP2.

I can plug my digital camera's USB2 cable into the USB2 port of hte Akasa card reader and a G: drive appears in explorer to allow me to navigate the photos on the camera's card.

However, if I plug the SD card directly into the Akasa card reader then no G: is displayed and I have no way of exploring the card.

Am I missing some drivers? should I have an install CD?

I have a folder:
"H:/Program Files/Multimedia Card Reader/"?



In it, but nothing else. If I try to run the InstallSQ.exe then I get a missing dll (ldamfilt), so it may be that I don't have all the files I need...

Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi to all,
I recently bought a Scan internal card reader, installed it, my PC recognized it, installed the drivers automatically, also a windows update was available for the card, installed everything & seems to work fine. The reader recognizes all the cards i give it including the USB, however I cannot manage to see the usual removable drives an internal card reader usually displays when it is attached to the PC.

The drive only appears when a card is inserted, is this normal?

Thanks for your help..

A:Solved: Internal Card reader works but does not show drives...

That's not 100% normal, but that's even better than the usual 4 drives hanging around for no reason in the Computer window... I think so, at least. If the reader works, don't worry about it.

It appears that newly shipping Z240 Tower workstations DO NOT have an internal USB header anymore?  The System Board Overview graphic in the Maintenance & Service Guide (Oct 2015) shows #7 as a USB 2.0 internal header.  However, the location where the header should be on the system board is actually a 1x6 pin header (P150) listed as "MEDIA".  The other USB 2.0 Header, #5, is taken up as the front USB cable. So is there an updated manual that shows what is actually on the system board?  The Z240 Tower QuickSpec is dated March 2016, so I'm hoping there is a newer manual out there somewhere.   Any idea what the P150 MEDIA header is for?  Is this for the old media card readers?  I have the optional SD card reader, but that is attached to #8 which is the internal USB 3.0 header. Any way to attach deveices that need an internal USB 2.0 header?

I have a new install of Windows XP SP2 and trying to plug in a Sandisk Imagemate CF Reader. Win recognizes it but cannot install a working driver. I noticed also right after it recognizes the Reader, I also get an add USB Mass Storage Device notice. That goes away when I try to install the Reader. The Reader worked fine under Win ME on another computer. I tried a few different USB ports and had the same problem.

My setup:

1 XFX 7800GT PCIe card
1gig Kingston HyperX RAM

I have the latest BIOS and chipset/video Nvidia drivers.

I need an alternative way to install a internal 9-in-1 card reader from Soyo. My motherboard does not provide the 4 internal USB headers, and I cannot get a pin layout from Dell for the USB connector on the motherboard. The PC is a Optiplex GX260 w/ a Planar motherboard. The Dell technician recommended purchasing a "Open Header USB Cable", but could not give me a part # and Soyo is not available. My first question is if I plug in one of the 5 pin connector from the reader w/o knowing the pin layout do I run the risk of frying my motherboard? If so, does anyone know an alternative way to connect this device?

A:Help installing 9-in1 card reader

Yes, you can cook either the reader, the MB, or possibly damage both. I'm confused, you say your MB doesn't provide internal USB connections, but you are trying to get a pinout for your internal USB connector?

Windows 2000 Professional SP4

I am trying to install a USB Card Reader to be used to dump pics from the comp onto a card to be used in a digital photo frame. I followed the directions for Win. 2000 SP4, that said to simply "plug the card reader into available USB port and computer will automatically install and recognize reader as a new drive". Nothing happened.

So I followed the directions for Win. 98SE/2000. I first restarted the computer, then inserted the installation disk. I plugged the card reader into the USP port. The next instruction said "Follow instructions on the screen" and "The reader icon will appear in My Computer." No instructions came up on the screen, but there WAS an icon in My Computer.

What do I do next?

I've installed a generic 6in1 internal card reader that also has a USB port. Now the part of the boot between showing the processor type and doing the memory test has gone from 1 or 2 seconds to more than 30 seconds! The reader is connected to the usb header on the m/b which is an Asus A7N8X-E deluxe. After booting the pc seems ok and the reader works ok. Has anyone any ideas what is going on?

A:slow boot after installing card reader


During boot up the system goes out to identify all the connected hardware (handshaking). It 'could' be that the speed of these devices and/or their lack of communication skills is slowing down that process?

If it only occurs with the device(s) plugged in, and reverts back when unplugged, that would be a pretty safe bet.

At the moment I have my music/audio I7 Ivy Bridge machine running two monitors from the onboard graphics, as an extended desktop (main monitor is a 27" 1920 x 1080, other monitor is a 22" 1680 x 1050).

I also have a laptop plugged into my main monitor, which gets switched between it and the desktop computer via the "source" switch on this monitor.(I have the laptop closed, but HDMI out into the monitor at 1920 x 1050 which the laptop's screen can't manage).

I've done this so I can work on my two screen audio computer, but switch the monitor source if I hear an email has arrived at the "normal" W7 installation on the laptop. Clunky I know. I use "Mouse Without Borders" to do this. It's a brilliant wee program.

Would installing a fairly low end Radeon HD5450 give me any advantage, with say a third monitor running at 1920 x 1080?

A:Installing a VGA card in addition to I7 Ivy Bridge Internal Graphics

With Ivy Bridge, I think you can use LicidLogix "Virtu":

lucidlogix with GPU Solutions

Or some other kind of program that allows you to merge Dedicated and Integrated Video. The Ivy Bridge is on the Motherboard?

I always use those cheap eVga GeForce 210's - they have a pretty decent output for a 35 dollar GPU board. I like ATI, but I have had way too much trouble with their drivers and the CCC program.

At least, if you had the 3rd monitor, you would not have to switch, I say go for it, get the ATI card if it is better for the system

Windows 7 SP2 Intel desktop PC.
I have a weird 3? slot internal USB card reader problem.
All SD and mSD cards (last with adapter) are recognized normally as storage devices except one Sandisk Extreme Pro 8GB micro SD, which worked normally until 2 weeks ago but still works normally with other external USB card reader.
With internal USB reader all SD cards used to be drive L: and still are L:, except this Sandisk Pro.
When this Sandisk mSd card is inserted nothing happens and looks like Windows considers it as nothing or something else but not a storage device.
Nor computer storage manager doesn't see it in internal card reader.

But when I use external card reader, this Sandisk SD card works normally and is given a letter S:.

It looks like some kind registry numerator of USB devices has listed this SD card ID as not storage device.
Any ideas how to troubleshoot?

A:SD card stopped working in old reader while reader and card are OK

If it were in the registry as not a valid device, it wouldn't work from the external reader, either. I would check to make sure that you don't have dirty contacts in the internal reader. Sometimes dust can get in there and raise havoc, especially on some SD cards which have more active contacts than others. One dirty contact can make one card not work, while other, low density cards, will.

If its not recognized, then you used a wrong driver.

If its recognized, the driver has been installed properly and there is another reason why SD cards cannot be used.

As far as I know the card reader of Satellite Pro L770 handles different kind of cards and different sizes.
Memory Stick: 128MB-256MB
Memory Stick Pro: 512MB-2GB
xD Card: No
mini SD: 8MB-2GB
micro SD: 8MB-2GB
CompactFlash: No
SmartMedia: No

As you can see supported SD cards: 8MB ? 2GB
It seems bigger SD cards are NOT supported.

Microsoft assured me that my Windows 7 laptop (Latitude E6510) was ready to upgrade to Windows 10.  In a way, it was... but only after I upgraded did I see Dell's caution that this model was not verified to work 100% with Windows 10.
Almost everything works (sound didn't work initially, but I found a fix online that helped), but clearly new drivers are required which recognize and drive the PC Card reader, the SD card reader, and even the CD/DVD drive.  The CD drive won't even open when pressed, nor is it recognized as a drive by Windows 10. 
Yes, these inputs can all be accessed via external USB drives,  but please provide new drivers, Dell.  For those with this model on the fence about upgrading, determine how much you need these built-in readers/drive!

A:Latitude E6510: Windows 10 works, but not CD/PC card/SD card reader

I've just upgraded my Latitude E6510 to windows 10. Most of the drivers refuse to run as they cant recognise W10 OS. I suggest anyone thinking of the upgrade not to at this stage. The Dell Driver downloads area warns of this.
Right now I have a non working keyboard, mouse pad, backlight. My biggest concern is the Nvidea graphics drivers wont install so I have fuzzy text with some of my programs (not all).
I am surprised MS allowed me to download W10?? I'm going to waste another day trying to fix this up or I'm going to have to reinstall W7. Very unproductive-not happy

Does anyone know how I can resolve this issue?

I have aLexmark memory card reader that I use with my memomry cards for my digital cameras. I just bought a new M 1G FujiFilm xD card. It said on the package that it is compatible with most cameras, and I didn't give it much thought since I have a Fuji camera.

Well, today I put the card in the reader and it won't read the card. Is there a way to chance properties of the reader so it can read it, or do I need a newer memory card reader because of the new "M" thing? If I need a new one, does anyone have any suggestions on which readers work with the newer cards? Thanks

last night, we got a brand new laptop. It's a toshiba satellite a210/a215. There's a slot on the front, that I was told was a card reader. I was stupid and thought "Lets put the SD Camera card in there and get pictures!" Long story short, it must obviously not go there. It went inside, and I couldn't get it back out. Trying to get it out pushed it waaay further in, and I don't know if i'll be able to get it out at all now. I need help! What should I do? =(

(sorry if this is the wrong place, mods please move it to the correct place if i got it wrong)

Hello, I'm working on building a new computer, and I'm stuck on 2 parts.

For the internal card, I have no idea what I should get. I've always had an external modem. My router is compatible with basically any modem. Also, I don't know how to check if a card would fit into my computer(No idea what part it goes into). I will be using windows XP. If anyone can enlighten me on how this works, and some options on what to buy, I guess i'd be a happy person.

For the sound card, basically the same thing. I am getting this

-Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P AM3 AMD 770 ATX AMD Motherboard.

The specs does not say if it has a built in sound card or not, any info on that would be great.

I have no CD rom on the computer I'm trying to install XP on (it's broken) just a floppy disk. It is hooked up to the LAN though, and I have a netboot disk and tftpd32 server set up which allowed me to successfully install the Linux distribution Ubuntu. I realize I'll have to remove the linux partition before installing XP, but how do I install XP over the network?

A:Installing XP via network shared CD
