Things to Know
when Using the Reader:
There are two interfaces of ExpressCard: PCI-E ExpressCard and USB 2.0 ExpressCard. Standard Type
and Advanced Type card reader accept both PCI-E and USB 2.0 ExpressCard, but the Basic Type card reader only accepts USB 2.0
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
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
