Dell Flex-bay cable - Can you help?! Need an internal media card reader for old Dell PC

Found 14th Aug 2008
Hello all

I'm looking for some help, a friend of mine at work bought an internal media card reader with the intention of putting it in his Dell Dimension 5150, unfortunately it turns out that it's a proprietary connection, and you have to buy a proper Dell one (instead of joe average usb!), Dell quoted him nearly £50 for one!

Does anyone on this forum have a spare reader willing to sell? Or even the cable itself? I have found a way of modifying the standard connector to work with his usb drive if so.

Compatible drives are found in the following Dells:
Dimension 3100
Dimension E310
Dimension 5000
Dimension 5100
Dimension 5150
Dimension E510
Dimension 9100
Dimension 9150
XPS 400
Precision 380

If anyone can help it'd be much appreciated!
