It seems that the card reader if the computer is not detecting the card. Make sure that the memory card you use is supported. The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to Secure Digital card (SD), Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick (MS), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD). Specific models of the Aspire One are also equipped with an SD Expansion slot that can read and write to Secure Digital (SD) and Secure Digital High Capacity card (SDHC) cards. The multi-in-one card reader on the Aspire One can read and write to miniSD, microSD, Memory Stick Duo,and Memory Stick PRO Duo cards but require the use an adapter. Acer does not provide or support any memory card adapters. You can try removing the card reader using the device manager and the reinstall it and check the operation.

From Microsoft support:
Some Secure Digital (SD) cards do not work correctly on Windows XP-based computers. Additionally, you may notice a yellow exclamation mark (!) next to the SD card in Device Manager.
This problem may occur even though you have applied other hotfixes that are required for high-capacity SD card support. For more information, click the following article numbers to view the articles in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
923293 The 923293 hotfix adds support for SD High Capacity memory cards in Windows XP
934428 Hotfix for Windows XP that adds support for SDHC cards that have a capacity of more than 4 GB
Yes, i t should be unless it is a SDHC Card which it should not be as SDHC cards have minimum 4 GB capacity. For more info:
The older SD (secure digital) cards had a maximum capacity of 2GB. The
SDHC (secure digital high capacity) cards can go to 32GB. Devices that
support SDHC will say so in their specs and they will also read older
SD card. Older devices that use SD cards will NOT use SDHC.
"SDHC (Secure Digital High-Capacity) cards are flash memorycards with a minimum capacity of 4GB (gigabytes). SDHC cards provide removable memory for compatible digital devices including cameras, camcorders, PDAs, MP3 players and more.
You can now get up to 2.0 Gigs (that's 2048MB) of storage on a MiniSD card and all you would need is a SD Adaptor. The following site has MiniSD cards that are 1.0Gig (1024MB) or 2.0Gig (2048MB) and they come with FREE adaptors!
As technology increases so will the story size. They are talking about making MiniSD cards that are up in the 5.0gig (5120MB) area. Enjoy!
