So I got something in the box of AceKard 2i I recently order and the USB Reader was in there but I have no idea how to use it. Luckily I have another one so it's not of a huge importance but if I can figure how to use this one, I would really love to know.

As you can tell by the picture, the thing is pretty small. one side has connector looking thing showing but the other side is covered in black plastic thing. also, it will not fit into a usb port due to the black thing, I believe. I tried pulling and etc on the black thing but it's not budging and if I use more force, it will probably just break the damn thing.

Has anyone received a similar USB reader? am i suppose to attach thing thing to something else on the bare side?

lol Just put it in your USB slot

I got mine earlier was like "zomg wtf is this!?!?" and remembered this topic but was too lazy to go ahead and find it... It fits right into the USB slot

EDIT: Don't put the Golden part upside down....

thanks for the reply guys, the thins is, it doesn't fit in my usb ports, any of the four computer i have + various dongles, including PS3, Xbox360.

I mean, I can, but I have to push really hard on it (More than 3 or 4x force I normally use for the normal USB things). I guess in a way, I'm a bit scared if I'm doing it right because I have to use pretty sufficient amount of force, an amount i usually don't have to use.

Errrrr I don't see why not.

It fits perfectly into each of my laptop's USB slots and my xbox 360's.

"Micro SD USB 2.0 Adaptor" lettering and gold part facing upwards by the way... I didn't have to put in any extra force or anything :wtf:

Since these are not exactly a 1st party quality made USB readers, I'm going to assume that mine's slightly defunct then. Like I said, no matter what USB Ports I've tried (about 10), I have to use some what of a force (more than average) and I'm afraid to push it all the way in because of it.

The tension is generally normal for these kinds of devices. Since they dont have the USB 'sleeve' to keep the usb stick in contact, it has to use the tension when inserting to ensure you have a good connection. It's generally not a huge problem. You can just leave it in and slide in your sd stick as needed which is what I do.
