    Hi I used to have an MS 7091 Motherboard which had a smart card reader connector on the board, have now got an Asrock N68C-S UCC motherboard and was wondering if someone new how I would be able to somehow connect the card reader to my Asrock motherboard. I still have Advent AirXL case that the MS mothherboard was in. Thanks

    I think your motherboard was build for Medion who unfortunately don't conform to regular standards with their connections. A card reader would normally connect to a USB connector on the motherboard but the Medion has a different one, so I would just get another card reader and connect to USB socket on your Asus board.

    Hi Steve
    Thanks for your input and after much research and consideration I have decided to opt for an external USB card reader as the one that is in my case is a reader card that screws onto slots already prebuilt into the case and after about six hours of searching the Internet I have realised that I have to concede defeat.

    I suppose that sometimes it is horrible being a newbie to all this
