Internal cardreader connected to ...

Hello.I recently posted a thread regarding the connection of an internal card reader.

I was hoping it would connect to the internal USB port on a USB PCI card.

Because the connection is different,is there an adapter available,like the USB to PS2,or is there a way to wire the USB header plug lead to a USB plug ?.

I hope this is clear.Cheers

click here 3rd box down - is this it? Have no idea if they ship to UK but now you have a description you can Google it and see if there is a UK source. I looked at Maplins but couldn't find one there.

Mine came with a standard usb cable which passed out through a pci cover, with a slot and gromet in it (supplied with the reader) and plugged into the one of the rear usb ports on the pc. The normal usb cable has four shielded wires +5V and Gnd and two differential data signals (labelled as D+ and D- in pinout). You could in theory solder direct to the motherboard or pci card, but you'd realy need to know what you are doing.
