Things to Know when Using the Reader
�� There are two interfaces of ExpressCard: PCI-E ExpressCard and USB 2.0 ExpressCard. PCE10 and Advanced Type card reader accept both PCI-E and USB 2.0 ExpressCard, but the Basic Type(PCU10) card reader only accepts USB 2.0 ExpressCard.
�� When using the USB 2.0 ExpressCard, the system will automatically identify the ExpressCard and add new device at the insertion of the card.
�� When using the PCI-E ExpressCard, the system cannot automatically identify new device, so the user need to add new device manually.
After inserting the PCI-E ExpressCard, please do following procedure and enter:
Control Panel �� System �� Hardware �� Device Manager ��
Scan for Hardware Changes.
After the scan, the system will identify the ExpressCard and add new device.
�� The card reader does not require any driver to be installed. It is when a device is plug into the reader that the system would detect that device and ask for a driver for the ExpressCard.
�� Although the reader supports Hot-Swap function, we still suggest the
ExpressCard should be inserted before power on the system.
