hi, I have dell dimension 3100c desktop I want to install a memory card reader, I ordered one off ebay its a 5 pin connector, but the card reader connector in the dell is a 4 pin, can I get 5 to 4 pin converter?
I've had a look on ebay but can't seem to find one

If the card reader is a USB type you only need 4 pins the 5 pin is a extra earthling pin if the 5

pins plug will fit on to the 4 pins connector make sure that you connect it correct as you can

damage the motherboard
