I have a generic internal memory card reader. The MemoryStick slot stopped working entirely. And whenever I insert an SD card, I have to push it in and pull it out like 20 times before it reads it. After about three minutes, it loses the connection and windows thinks it's ejected.

I have an ASUS A7A266 motherboard, and it's plugged into it's usb plug, whatever it's called.

Is it slowly dying? This started happening last week.

Another question: Can I buy a PCI card for more of those plugs in USB 2.0 speed?

I have yet to see any multi-card reader that was built half way decent. I've had to take them apart and reattach pieces. You might have to do likewise

As for the controller card the answer is yes

OMG! I have that exact card, but I can't find the plug that you would plug a card reader into.

You would need this cable to go from the card to the plug for the card reader

Are you sure it's not CPX508?
