Elan P423 PCI to PC Card adapter supports two independent card sockets compliant with the 16 bit PC Card standard. The reader provides a rich feature set, making it ideal for bridging between PCI and PC Card in desktop computers. Units comply with the 16 bit PC Card specifications and supports any combination of 8 bit or 16 bit PC Cards in the two sockets, powered at 5.0V or 3.3V as required. The two slot design accommodates combinations of up to two Type I or two Type II cards simultaneously, or one Type III card. The reader does not support 32 bit CardBus Cards.
The internal model's card slots are contained in a standard 3.5" drive bay, providing the reader with easy front access for card insertions. The host system interface for the readers is compliant with the PCI Local Bus Specification 2.1 or greater. Unique software configured interrupt routing circuits, and necessary drive software is provided together for the reader to service IO cards requiring IRQ functionality from the socket. This enables the reader to support most 16 bit PC Card applications including: Wireless LAN Card (802.11b, Bluetooth, etc.), SRAM cards, Linear Flash cards, ATA cards, Modem cards and LAN cards as long as they are supported by the host operating system. This device is listed as P423 on the DEXIS System Requirements documentation.

If your computer has Elan PCI card reader before, please remove Elan driver and make sure that your computer has the following file
Our readers use Windows Native driver,
PCMCIA card Drivers Information
Drivers are automatically installed by the Windows when it recognizes a PC Card slot at installation, but often not installed if it doesn't. Typically these drivers are not present on a desktop system since most customers add a PCI to PC Card drive reader well after Windows software is installed on a system.
If you have a retail CD-ROM of the Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 installation disk, then this isn't an issue since simply inserting the CD-ROM during the new hardware found routine will allow Windows to find and install the correct drivers. However, many end users purchase computers from large vendors with Windows XP/Vista pre-installed and the CD-ROM they get with their system isn't a full copy of Windows (a restore disk) although they paid in full for Windows. In this case the end users needs to contact their system vendor and tell them that they need the "signed Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10 drivers for the R5C485, R5C486, R5C843, or PCI1510" depending on which controller their PC Card drive reader uses. The drivers may already be on a system in "C:\\WINDOWS\system32\DRIVERS\pcmcia.sys", and instructing the installation routine to that file may help.
