Hello everyone. I recently purchased a logisys 52-in-1 5 card reader from newegg.com.
I'm now trying to put it into a Dell Dimension case. A couple of problems here. First of all, there's no bracket in my Dimension to mount the reader. That's easily solvable, as I've found a couple of cheap floppy brackets on eBay.
Second, I guess I didn't realize at the time that this was the size of a floppy drive, not a CD drive (my own inexperience with card readers is showing). I was going to mount it in the second slot for my CD drive, but it's too small. I can still mount it there, but it would leave a gap in my case. I'm not sure if anyone is familiar with a dimension case, but it looks like this:
I can't exactly put the reader in the floppy space, because it would cover up part of the reader. I suppose I could carve into the plastic, but that's not a solution I like very much (and no, I can't just remove the faceplate. Thanks Dell!)
The final problem is perhaps the most difficult. I was expecting cable similar to a hard drive to plug the reader into my computer, but instead it's supposed to go where the USB pin on my motherboard. I could use this, but it would eliminate the double USB port I have on the front of my case. Is there any kind of splitter for a USB pin? I'm really not familiar with motherboards, as the only internal work I've ever done was to install secondary hard drives and CD drives.
Does anyone have this kind of reader, or have faced this kind of problem? Any help would be great. Thanks!
