Akasa Internal USB 3.0 Card Reader with eSATA and USB

• USB 3.0 card reader unleash the power of high speed memory card
• Four card-slots are active at the same time, allowing cross format data transfer
• USB 2.0 HUB with independent power design
• USB 3.0 port backwards compatible with USB 2.0

Rated 1 out of 5 by from faulty This is the second one I bought because the SD card reader didn't work on the first one...and guess what it doesn't work on the second one either. It appears to work only once after that any SD cards don't work. The Akasa website suggest a firmware upgrade which I did...makes no difference. Avoid at all costs

Like Dougie, I have connected my Akasa to my ASUS P6X58D-E motherboard. This does not support USB3 from the board however USB2 working fine but SD card reader not working. This might become a frequently asked question. What do I need to do?

Asked by: Martyn
Try updating the firmware, I had similar problems updated the firmware a couple of days ago and it has worked perfectly since.

From the 2 pictures I dont understand if this fits onto the floppy bay or the CD Rom bay. I have a free floppy bay onto my Desktop Lenovo M57 (which is littler than the CD Rom bay) and I would like to understand if this article is what I need. I have a 4 pin molex (IDE type) connector and a SATA power connector free. Can you please attach more pictures of the back of the article to understand how this will connected. Thanks a lot

Les - WRONG! "Required Bay: 3.5" internal". 10 seconds googling told me. At least you got the 5.25" size of the CD bay correct, unlike your colleague in another post.

Are the card readers powered by USB 3? And are faster than internal card readers attached to the motherboard vis USB2. I have an internal card reader attached via usb 2 but looking to upgrade to a faster internal reader and I do have a spare usb3 header 

Asked by: Alan
The card reader is part of the USB 2 connectivity and would operate at USB2 max speed. To utilise the USB3 function it must be connected to an internal USB3 header. To utilise the USB2 function it must be connected to an internal USB2 header. To utilise the eSATA function it must be connected to an internal SATA header. The device must be powered via a standard 4 pin molex connector. Full instructions for the device can be found here. https://maplindownloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/A89NL-4406.pdf
