Front Low-Profile PCI Express (PCIe) to ExpressCard 34|54 Drive Read-Writer
for your Desktop PC with the Internal PCIe Slot


Front Single-Slot ExpressCard Reader, Model: PCE10

 PSI's PCIe to ExpressCard Drive Read-Writer Front Low Profile enables PCIe based desktop computers to utilize ExpressCard applications. This industrial grade reader accepts both ExpressCard 34 and 54 cards, and is completely transparent to any card inserted. Plug the included USB cable into an available port (preferably internal header type), plug the reader into an open PCIe slot, install the 3.5inch drive bay enclosure, and installation is complete! The device itself requires no drivers. The PCIe 1X configuration allows for the full 250MB/s (megabytes) throughput for PCIe based ExpressCards, while the USB 2.0 configuration allows USB 2.0 ExpressCards to operate at their 480Mb/s (megabits) speed. The backplane plate on the PCIe card is MD-1 low profile compliant and the 3.5" drive bay enclosure provides an additional USB 2.0 port. A great way to share devices between modern laptops and desktops, the PCIe to ExpressCard 54 reader is an smart addition for desktop machines.

Things to Know when Using this Reader:

  1. 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 ExpressCard.

  2. When using the USB 2.0 ExpressCard, the system will automatically identify the ExpressCard and add new device at the insertion of the card.

  3. 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.

  4. The card reader does not require any driver to be installed. You do need the driver for your ExpressCard! 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.

  5. Although the reader supports Hot-Swap function, we still suggest the ExpressCard be inserted before power on the system.
