Default installing card reader 5 pin.

Hi, I just want to say I hate pin connectors.
so.. I got a call from a customer.. his friend was fixing the computer but then had to leave, their original card reader was not working. so they bought a new one and i came to install it. After trying to install it.. i noticed the old one is a 10 pin (one blank) connector and the new one is a 5 pin.. so that wouldn't work I would assume. I guess you wouldnt be able to use a 5 pin usb pin thing on a F-USB thing one of those yellow ones on the motherboard? But I scanned the mother and there was no place for a 5 pin one.

I typically always do my pins when I am first building the computer so this computer was a real hard ache.. and the case was also a total rubix cube... Anyway thanks in advance for your help.

Cool

Color sequence is red, white, green, black. Should be able to use the yellow I think without issue, the color is just to simplify things but is no different than if it were blue or black, etc. Perhaps I misunderstood somehow but it should be fairly straightforward, Googled for an image that maybe helps?

Yeah ill have to check if I got them in right, I was a little flustered to be honest. After fighting with this case from hell. Just seems strange I would lose the back USB for putting the pins in wrong. And thanks for the assist.

Hopefully it is useful information, I know the colors haven't ever affected the functionality of any I've seen over the years. The color sequence I committed to memory long ago so custom built rigs would be easier.
