Pin Assignment Teac CA-200 Flash Card Reader

  • Hi, does anyone know the pin assignment for a Teac CA-200 card reader?  I've been given one to put in my XPS 700 but without the cable and I can't find either information about the reader or a cable.  Dell are no use either...  It's not a standard configuration (2 x 4 way internal USB 2.0).
     
    Any help would be much appreciated.
     
    Cheers

    Well, you are kinda out of luck. The Dell branded 13n1 card reader is proprietary and attaches to the proprietary flexbay on the motherboard. Even if you had the pinout, chances are you could not get the CA-200 properly recognized by your computer.
     
    I am not absolutely certain because it has been a while since my last order, but I belive the Dell card reader does not come with the cable when purchased from Dell Spare Parts.  
  • Hi, thanks for the reply.  The XPS manual gives instructions on how to install the card reader, it just slots into the internal USB 2.0 10 pin header on the motherboard.  Standard configuration on that header, 10 pin, one blanked and one not used.  But it's a different header on the card reader.  Different pin is blanked off.

  • The pin assignment and connector for the motherboard in a Dell XP410 is standard USB and includes the following assignment:

     [1] (Red)   Power +5volts        
     [2] (White) Data Negative 
     [3] (Green) Data Positive 
     [4] (Black) Ground             
     [5]         Unused

    However, the Teac CA-200 Flash Card reader has a non standard 10 pin configuration (Flexbay connector 2.00 mm apart vs. 2.54mm apart).  The pin assignments are as follows (back view connection of the Flash card reader) :

                     ____

    ┌─────┘     └─────┐

      .R     .      .B     .W     .   

      .        .      .        .       .G

    └──────────────┘

    1st Row:  Red,    empty, Black, White,  empty

    2nd Row: empty, empty, empty, empty, Green

    I tested this Flash Card reader in my XP410 and it works, but had to solder the pin connections in my card reader given the non standard connection.  The XP410 motherboard uses the standard USB assignment and connector (pin layout above).

    Hope this helps…

  • GO TO YOUR ONLINE COMPUTER DEALER LOOK FOR SUPPORT/DRIVERS THAN LOOK FOR THE MANUAL AND MAINTENCE FOR YOUR MODEL IT SHOULD GIVE YOU ALL THE INFOR U NEED

  • Many thanks to JUANJG115.

    Soldered my own connection cable with  this description, and it worked fine.

    I had both the end-connection-plugs, but not the wiring.

    Thanks!
