Media Identification for Floppy-Card Reader Combo (YD-8V08)
Hello Folks,

We received a couple requests from users who were not sure about the assignment of Drives and Media in Windows. Not every user has all sort of media and to identify each drive, it seems not really easy. Fortunately we have a small driver/tool which identifies and also re-assigns the drives. This is how it looks like, after you installed the software:

Download the Utility:
For Win98SE, Win2000, WinME, WinXP(32/64bit)
For Win Vista

I think this will solve the problem right away and ease the use of the card reader function.

Before I attempt the 7mb download on my poor dial-up, will this software also work on the Kama-Panel? Mine came with no software....

Well I down-loaded the file but it won't work for the Kama-Panel. So the card readers still have generic drive icons. Is there a different file available?

There is no software for Kama Panel now. The software you can download here works only with YD-8V08.

Where to purchase in UK?
I have been trying to purchase this combi floppy / card reader in the UK but can't seem to find it anywhere (following the UK online store links). Please could you tell me where I could get one from? This would be incredibly practical for me.

FWIW.....concerning drive icons for the Kama-panel. I found some that work. They came with an unknown reader I got a few years ago. I can't tell you much more.....the driver CD was the small type, green and white. On the label it says....USB 2.0 High Speed Card Reader/Writer V.CAS0506.

If you're interested I'd suggest just try out various drivers, if you can find any....can't hurt anything if they don't work. I tried three different before this one was successful.

HELP! Vista 64Bit
Guys, Ive just bought a new pc and I also selected the Scythe Card Reader with it, I also purchased Windows Vista 64Bit and the card reader is not recognised by it, I have tried installing all the drivers available on this site, both the Vista and 64bit XP ones, Im stuck.... Does anyone know what I can do to get the reader recognised?

Hi SirDeath,

what exactly happens while you're connecting the CardReader? Are there any leds glowing?

SirDeath 02-02-2008 10:01 PM

It was already connected when I recieved the pc, there does not appear to be any LED's on the front of it other than a green and white one which I can only assume will work when the card reader is in use...

Did you connect it in the right way? Does it maybe smell burned???
If you have connected it and it does not get recognized, that could be the wrong wire connection which kind of kills it.

Where are you from? Send me a PM, if it smells burned, as we need to talk about the RMA process if that's the case.
