Card Reader For Optiplex 990 Mini Tower ?

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

Re: Card Reader For 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.
