I just want to get your opinion on something.
I admittedly incorrectly installed a Media Card reader in a client's brand new Systemax Desktop PC. I believe I attached it to the 1394 connector directly on the mobo.
With that said, the customer had the PC home and was trying to use it. He tried a few different cards (SD, I believe) and 1 or 2 external HDDs attached to the USB port on the card reader.
According to my co-worker, he is back and none of these cards/devices are working properly anymore. She attached them to our Technician PC that we typically use to test if media is readable and she confirmed they are toast (seemingly).
Has anyone ever heard of such a thing? I haven't seen it myself, but if in-fact it was installed wrong, then its my fault -BUT- I cannot seem to grasp how that would wreck these media cards/drives.
Any ideas? Suggestions? Thoughts if thats even possible? It would be much appreciated.
