Stop wasting your time on that thing. Not really worth using something like that for a few reasons: However, I noted that you used the wrong half of the cable, as I did on one of my tries. It will work either way, it is just aesthetics I guess. Yes, I can get and already have another card reader, but that won’t help if a similar problem arises later on with another USB device.

Digital Card Reader Mitsumi Fa404m 8-in-1 USB 2.0 Internal With Floppy Drive
Sometimes it doesn’t start in XP, mitsumi card reader. Yes, I can get and already have another card reader, but that won’t help if a similar problem arises later on with another USB device.
Mitsumi card reader think the only difference is that the A has the floppy on top, whereas the M has the floppy on redaer bottom. The guide linked above is excellent and here’s a photo showing my quick hack job of the Flexbay cable that came with the machine before trimming and wrapping the cable.
I had Windows Mitsumi card reader open, and could see the reader with the appropriate drive letters. Reviving the dead here. Upon reboot, it doesn’t show up in the BIOS, and won’t work again until you’ve unplugged and replugged it.
You can claim yourself an expert or a guru and still be a moron I’ve read that some don’t use the Intel standard USB pin configuration. It just carv on and you can build it and shape it. I didn’t think mitsumi card reader extra mitsumi card reader were needed. The keyed end that you see in the photo is the same end that was plugged into the Flexbay header on the MB, as it was installed by the factory, so don’t see how it can be mitsumi card reader “backwards”.
Even if you value your time at minimum wage, you’ve already “paid” for a new one in opportunity cost. The reader I have that works is 9-pin, which has a USB passthrough port.
Just buy a new device. Yeah, it isn’t USB 3. For a list of available ports, click here.

BTW, I tried plugging one of the USB ports back plate, in order to fill up the other pins on the mitsumi card reader header, but no luck. For some reason, the device isn’t “starting”. It has floppy disk as well which was recognized.
However, something during boot disables the device completely. It will work either way, it is just aesthetics I guess. The important thing is that it works. I first wired it up based on your photo of the plug and wire as seen from the back, then realized that the key is on the other side of the plug on this machine, so all my pins were mitsumi card reader the mitsumi card reader place.
If you require drivers to get it working at all that must be a pretty old reader with some proprietary interface through USB.
It works fine in a different computer? I thought I mitsumi card reader have plugged it in wrong since it is only small connector on the larger USB port mobo. Just scrounged a 4 pin header off an old motherboard, so should be good to go.
Seems to be holding up fine. WIndows 10 autodriver detection and selection is definitely more robust than windows Well, finally got it working. Mitsumi card reader soldering and shrink tubing work.

I’ve already got a mitsumi card reader reader in myso I’ve got the Flexbay connector and cable to hack into. I see this is an old thread now, lol, and W10 solved the problem.
