Make sure your card is plugged into a power source. The card should have a Molex 4-pin power connector like older hard drives.


Try to get it to recognize a USB 3.0 hard drive (a thumb drive should work).


If you can get it to this point, and you can recognize drives the card and/or driver may just not be compatible with your reader.


Look at my post here for a card that definitely works: Orinico USB 3.0 Fresco card
