    Hi, i am very new to techiehq.
    I want to know what this (attached) connector is called and how do I connect this to a USB port. Do I get an adapter for the same?

    What's on the other end? This looks like a connector that goes straight onto a motherboard connection.

    The other end is a multi card reader.. Which replaces a floppy drive in a computer. I want to connect the same to my laptop. There should be a way I can do it right?

    I can't remember having seen a connector like that before. As I said above, it looks like it connects straight to a mobo. I assume this multi-card reader is an internally mounted one from a PC?

    What make/model is it? Have you checked the maker's website for any technical info there?

    I am not sure that you'll be able to hook it up to a usb slot. The original plug has 9 connections of which it looks like 7 are in use. They'll include power, data & control lines. I can't personally see how it can be adapted to connect to a 4 pin usb port.

    wouldn't any adapter be available to do the same? if only it was as simple as plugging a UBS cable in the USB slot of the card reader and the other end to the laptop USB port!! :)
    Anyway.. hopefully I'll be able to find a solution for this problem!
