I have this older model computer that needs a PCI Card reader. I am trying to understand how to call this part of the computer a socket. But…I do not know the name of the socket.
P.S. If anyone knows the name of this socket of the OptiPlex 5060 from Dell, please do tell. I have searched high and low. It seems that even Dell does not know.
Oh! Here are some photos I was able to grab. I do not know the name of the connection yet. I will keep searching:
Anyway…it is the perpendicular portion socket in black that is near the center of the computer board.
I just found the info. in broad daylight. Here is the connector in question:
M.2 SSD connector
I was unaware of this type of connector housing a SD Card connection.
I was wrong. Dang it,
You guys got it hard. This is more complicated than expected but I finally found the right connector on the board.
P.S. Sorry to disturb everyone w/ full size computer stuff.
14. SD card reader connector. It is actually to the left of the multi-colored cabling.
I’m not sure if you found what you’re looking for or not. Here is a link to SD card connectors, as well as microSD. I’m not quite sure what you’re looking for, but all of these options are in stock.
The large black sockets, with the release levers are the DIMM Ram memory sockets.
I did not. I did not find the exact connector matches.
large black socket is a M.2 Socket for this computer, I think. There is a smaller connector in the photo. It is in the first photo. It is located to the bottom left of the gold colored symbol.
P.S. What is the name of that specific connector?
I should have done this firstly. Sorry.
I think, think, that I found a dongle for this specific connector. Drumroll please!
It says 5040 but I have the 5060. Updates on the way!
P.S. If your company has the identification means to handle this task, thank you. If not, I will keep trying. And…if anyone knows, please say so before I go broke trying when I could know!
It’s great you found what you’re looking for. But, the link you added says 7040 not 5040.
You are right. I am going w/ what looked like a correct adapter connection. It seems like nothing else is going to work so far. I found some things on ebay but they look like they will not work.
This is way random and I probably should be sworn to secrecy. But!
I chatted w/ Dell people, probably laughing behind my back while on the chatting interface, about what they thought about the adapter interface.
They said something and I looked it up. There was no way their idea of what type of connection needing to be made was correct.
I found a site and it looked close to the connection adapter to/from the uSD socket. Anyway, I will keep people updated in case what I purchased was correct on this type of computer.
Okay. Patiently waiting for your feedback.
Hello @Keonte45 ,
Did you see that this was a
solution? The part arrived, I simply plugged it in, and it has worked to this day!
