Card Reader For Optiplex 990 Mini Tower ?

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hi,

Is it possible to add a card reader to a Dell Optiplex 990 mini tower base unit using the spare drive bay?

Presumably a card reader would have to connect to a vacant connector on the motherboard?

By card reader, I mean one with multiple slots that can accept a variety of cards from digital cameras and other types of cards.

 

Thx

  • Buy an external usb card reader. Cheap and easy.

  • No, I do not want an external card reader, I want an internal fitted one if that is possible

  • There are quite a few internal media card readers listed as Dell upgrades. Does anyone know for sure which ones are definitely compatable with an Optiplex 990 Mini Tower?

  • Hi Dogform,

    This one is listed for Optiplex systems. It can't hurt to call or chat and confirm.

  • SppedStep,

    Thx for the list, however, that list of compatible Dell Computers does not mention the Dell Optiplex 990 Mini Tower

  • Thats because I cannot find ANY list that shows a Flex Bay for the 790/990

    I chatted with Dell and they came up with a number G7V21.

    I would be highly suspicious of this number as the person on the other end did not seem to be the brightest bulb in the package.
