1)  How to connect the cables?

With  attached ribbon cable, please plug the 2-pin connector into the pin - J1 on the card reader and plug in the 40-pin flat cable connector (see the pictures below).

Or you can just use the standard ATA-100/133 IDE cable line.




Note: pin-J1 function

It is just the circuit design for delaying the reset signal so that if there are some compatibility issues between the IDE card reader and your built-in IDE bus CD/DVD ROM on your system,  you have to use this IDE 2-pin cable.  Plugging in the 2-pin connector to the pin - J1 on the card reader will solve the issue.

 If there is no any compatibility problem, please just use the standard ATA-100/133 IDE cable line and ignore the 2-pin connector.


2)  Where does the power come from?

The 5V power comes from the existing power supply on your system.
