Short USB Cable

Anonymous, Newegg
19 November 2008
  • Pros: Fit well in case. Floppy worked
  • Cons: Like most other reviewers I found out that the usb cable that connects to the USB header too short. I'm going to have to take it out and either extend it myself or buy a 5 1/4 conversion kit to be able to place it closer to the bottom of my MOBO.

Was fluky, then stopped working

Anonymous, Newegg
15 November 2008
  • Summary: Wish it had not failed just outside the one year warranty. Not likely to buy Rosewill again.
  • Pros: All in one unit. Designed to read most memory cards. Half height size.
  • Cons: Had trouble with unit from the beginning. Unit would not always recognize cards when inserted in slots. The cards had to be pulled out and inserted repeatedly until unit would recognize them. Eventually the unit stopped recognizing cards at all. Right now unit is a $25 paperweight.

Floppy did not work on mac

Josh J., Newegg
15 November 2008
  • Summary: The card reader works great, however the floppy disk drive did not work on my Mac, There is a floppy slot on my mac. I had talked with rosewill about it and they said the drive was defective and to do an RMA, but they do not cover S & H, so its basically not worth it.
  • Pros: - card reader and floppy all in one - small - black to match my case
  • Cons: - Floppy disk drive did not work on my mac - Drive uses a Floppy cable and not USB

Works Great

Nicholas R., Newegg
9 November 2008
  • Summary: I have a couple of these devices, and they all work great, Haven't tried on a 4GB SD card yet.
  • Pros: If you need a 3.5 floppy drive, you might as well get this one and have an internal card reader as well. I like mine
  • Cons: Just simply having to use a 3.5 floppy. I accidentally threw my SD card in the 3.5 slot - oops - but was able to fish it out.

  • Summary: If your not familiar with the layout of your motherboard this may be too much for you. Look up the manual on the internet before cracking your case!
  • Pros: Nice to have the floppy and card reader in one. Great use of space. And yes you do have to use a floppy interface on the Mobo, so be sure your system will support it. Plugged in and worked without a hitch.
  • Cons: Didnt read the description close enough, it doesnt have any usb ports or audio ports on it so not really an "all-in-one".

Pretty Good

Mundy M., Newegg
5 November 2008
  • Summary: great for cases with 1 3.5" bay.
  • Pros: Floppy and card reader in 1 is nice. Price isn't too bad and it worked out of the box.
  • Cons: USB cable should really be a few inches longer for a full ATX case. The card slots collect dust, a lot of dust fast!

Its OK

Anonymous, Newegg
3 November 2008
  • Pros: I haven't really decided if I like this or not. I guess, if you want a floppy on your rig, might as well get something like this. Seems to work OK
  • Cons: no dust cover on the CF slot? Cmon guys, I live in dustland aka "The Southwest". I predict by the time I actually need the CF slot it'll be clogged with dust.

USB cable too short

Chris L., Newegg
27 October 2008
  • Summary: I will be returning the product. Rosewill did indicate that "they will consider the cable length of card readers design in the future". My case is a HEC 6XR8 and the motherboard a Foxconn P45A-S.
  • Pros: It had the features I was looking for and it looked nice on the case. Additionally, technical support responded quickly to my email.
  • Cons: The USB cable is too short to reach the header on the motherboard if the 3.5" drive bay is located on top of your case. I contacted Rosewill and they did apologize and suggested I move the reader to the bottom drive bay. Unfortunately all the other external drive bays are 5.25" which wold require...

Oh Rosewill

Jamison T., Newegg
27 October 2008
  • Summary: For some reason I always buy rosewill card readers and for some reason I'm never able to use them.
  • Pros: Well it does technically work. The floppy drive works well, but that's because it uses its own cable.
  • Cons: The cable that you're supposed to plug into the usb header is too short to actually reach the freaking header. If it was just an inch or so longer it would reach, but it's not... I did eventually get it plugged in by using a little extender, but I had to unplug it when I put in my graphics card b...

Good, but USB cable too short

Mark W., Newegg
22 October 2008
  • Summary: Overall, definitely make sure that your USB expansion ports on your motherboard are not too far from your 3.5" bay--or you may be in for a larger project than you first imagined.
  • Pros: A very useful thing to have for those with the need. Makes transferring photos and MP3s to a variety of flash media a snap! Plus, the built-in 1.44MB floppy drive takes care of your legacy storage/software/boot disk needs. Works just fine with Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit. Haven't run into any p...
  • Cons: After taking the drive out of its packaging, one of the first things I noticed was how short the USB cable was. Sure enough, this was problematic for me because my 3.5" drive bay is located near the top of my case (Rosewill R5604-TBK), and the USB expansion ports on my motherboard (Asus M3N72-D) ...
