Low Profile enables PCIe based desktop computers to utilize ExpressCard
applications. This industrial grade reader accepts both ExpressCard 34 and 54

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

Things to Know
when Using this 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 ExpressCard.
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. 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.
reader supports Hot-Swap function, we still suggest the ExpressCard be
inserted before power on the system.
