    Lady Fitzgerald, can you open up device manager and locate this card reader and see if there are any warnings?
    Tried that and couldn't find it. If it's there, it's under some oddball name.
    From the manufacturers website:
    In Device Manager, the drivers will be installed in “Disk Drives” and “Universal Serial Bus Controllers” or “Portable Drives”.
    I can find the USBs but nothing else. I don't have Portable Drives.

    That is quite the kerfuffle. Do you have another computer you can hook it up to temporarily to see if it acts the same?

    Hum it is a pity you couldn't get one of these I have my machines set up with them and they are the bees knees ICY BOX 5.25in Multiport Panel with Card Reader [IB-863-B] - $39.00 : PC Case Gear
    Too many ports that I don't need and/or already have.
    Sorry thought I was thinking you needed a card reader as you said you had one sent in the mail and it didn't work??

    Perhaps I shouldn't have said anything?
    Oh no, you're fine. It's just that that reader has four USB 2.0 ports I can't use because I don't have any more headers (not to mention I have ten USB 2.0 in the back and two on the front). I need the USB 3.0 ports but I can't tell if the card slots are USB 3.0 or USB 2.0 (I want the reader to run off USB 3.0 so I can take advantage faster cards). I already have an e-SATA port in the rear and one in the front. I also already have a microphone and headphone port in the front.

    Ok no probs Lady Fitz but it has two x 3.0 and an eSata as well but the problem is I think it isn't available in the US anyway I thought you were after those card slots, and more 3.0 ports.

    I have these because the ports at the rear are very limited and I am using the SD lsot and USB porst all the time cos of the easy access.

    More like conundrum. The only other computer I have is my notebook. The reader has to be powered by a four pin Molex so I used the cable I had temporarily hooked up to the power supply on my new rig (I've been bench testing it before going to the hassle of putting it in the machine only to have to pull it out again if things went pear shaped, which, sadly they did) to power the thing and hooked up the USB 3.0 cable to a USB 2.0 port on the notebook. Again, I got the popup saying a generic USB driver had been installed but the stupid reader just sat there and laughed at me.

    I hooked the stupid thing (I have more accurate names for it but Mama told me not to use those words) back up to my new rig and finally found the driver in Devices and Printers as a generic USB hub. As I said before, the USB 3.0 ports work; it's just the *&^%$#@! card reader that is AOL, DOA, FUBAR, etc.

    I also recognized it and I suppose you could call me a winter chicken but not quite that old. I only date back to '49; the expression dates back to the '20s.

    My ASUS P9X79 WS defaults to 1333 but can be set up to 1600 without overclocking.

    Talking about new hardware taking a dump...I just picked up my new card reader from my mail service today and I can't get the stupid thing to work. The USB 3.0 ports work but the card reader won't read cards. Heck, the computer doesn't even see it. I have an inquiry in to the mfg. but, if I don't get this thing working by tomorrow evening, I'm getting a RMA from NewEgg and shipping it back.

    I have one of those and love it! It puts my USB ports up front where they are reachable and useful. A plus was being able to get rid of a separate card reader. It took some fiddling with to fit my case though.
