Internal USB2.0 to Card Reader

  NormanD 19:25 04 Feb 2003

I have just purchased an Asus digital card reader that fits into a 3.5" bay on the front of my computer case. My intention was to connect this to the internal USB port on my Belkin USB card fitted to a PCI slot. However the connector supplied with the card reader has a special connector for use on an Asus Motherboard. Can any body please tell me if I may be able to buy a cable to connect the two.

Many thanks in advance

The connecter will fit any onboard usb as long as the wires are compatable[have to check wiring in motherboard manual]
In your case do you need cable from back of reader to ordinary usb socket??

I think the only way to go is take the cable into your local computer shop to show them and see if they can make another up with the ordinary usb connecter on one end.
