MDB machines use a small, 6 pin plug for coin mech and val connections.

A card reader needs an MDB connection to work.  If you don't have a harness or your board is incapable of running MDB, then your only option is to upgrade the machine IF possible, or replace the machine.  However, there are exceptions with machines that are MDB that cannot run a card reader.  One specific example is a USI 3189.  That machine will NOT run a card reader despite being MDB.  Most other MDB machines out there will work fine though.

Yes, you have to run MDB for a card reader.  You would have to post the model of snack to get an answer of whether it can be MDB or not.  Most snacks built after about 1998 or so should be MDB but it varies.
