Acer 1691wlmi 4-in-1 card reader wont' work - Acer Computers & Internet

  • trvlr Nov 12, 2008

    Hi:

    The slot in question is a 4-in-1 card reader (on the right side of the laptop; handles a range of SD and other small memory cards... The card itself is OK in a camera - and on the laptop if used via a USB-card reader adapter (any of one of several makes). I have not tried to use the built-in 4-in-i adapter until now; in fact don't think I realised it was there...?

    The ePower settings are set to allow the card to read...; likewise the Firewire... And my memory is that the Firewire didn't work a while back when I tried to use that too. But since most/all of my add-in kit is USB... Firewire hasn't been an issue; although it would be nice to have working too?

This reader is part of (as in - built-into) the laptop. External readers (via USB) work fine... Just the built-in one that won't...

Hi Traveler,

let me help you with this, but first...

Is it a USB Card Reader?

has it worked before on any other pc that you know of?

when you plug it into your computer does windows detect it?have you been able to install it?

If it doesnt detect it does the card reader itself have a power switch?

is there a light on the card reader? if so does it come on?


thanks in advance for answering my questions. I'm here to help.

Acer aspire t 180 cant get pc to recognize digital camera photo memory card


Has the computer recognized the memory card in the past? If so, try download and reinstalling the memory card driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Card Reader drivers.



If after installing the drivers the reader still does not work, you can purchase a multi format card reader that will plug into you usb port from Tiger Direct for less than $15. at



http://www.tigerdirect.com



When the site comes up just put in the search at the top "SD Card Reader or XD Card Reader" depending you your type and press GO. You can sort the returned results by Price Low to High.



Do you have a USB Cable that came with the camera that you can plug into one of the usb ports on the computer? If so, try that. It's another way of getting pictures off the camera. Plug the cable on the camera and into the computer then turn the camera on. The computer will recognize the camera and install the drivers. You can navigate through the camera folders just like you do any other device to find the pictures.

Where do i insert my compact flash


You need to insert your compact flash memory card into an USB CF card reader then plug the card reader into the USB port of your computer. Your computer will detect it as an external storage device then you can open the image folder and copy the photos to your computer.

I bought a 4 gig SanDisk Adapter micro SD, micro SDHC. my Acer Aspire will not recognize the card, i've tried the switch both ways multiple times. how can i get my PC to recognize the card?


My reader will not read mine either. I use a usb key card reader. It used to read the regular old SD cards but the new HC card format wont work. This is due to UDF differences. You can try to reformat the card but then your camera or device may not recognize it anymore. good luck

My computer doesnt register my SD card when it's inserted into the built in SD reader in my acer extensa 5620, iv gone into my computer and refreshed the page and it still wont work. Any help woukd be...


Some ideas:
Did you go to My Computer - its where the card would appear as an external volume.
Go to Device Manager and check the SD card reader- reinstall the driver if need be.
Could it be the card itself is at fault? Try a different card.

My acer 3680 laptop wo't read a 4 gig hc sd card


Good day sir/maam, you may need a driver for your SD card reader for vista. pop in the cd that came with your notebook to the cd drive. make sure its for Vista.
If still does not work, plug in a non HC sd, like a 1 gig SD card. if it works, then the card reader only supports non hc SD. ( I know it usually supports HC cards ) check also for viruses. there are viruses that can dissable sd card readers. just make sure your laptop is virus free.

Aspire 5610z card reader doesnt show up. Vista home premium


Did you ever solved your problem? I noticed the above response is just a spam ad.

I have same problem with Aspire 3680. I recently replaced the HDD and reinstalled Vista Home, all drivers from Acer has been loaded. I even updated the BIOS, updated Vista service packs and all patches.

Sent email to Acer, but of course they want $60 per 1/2 hour. And from the past experience it will take about 2 hours on the phone. Also they have no support forum, and support sucks.

So I'm still stumped. This SD problem with Acer is the only one I couldn't resolve of all brands I've worked on.
