Card reader not working

I have an acer aspire 5610z. my card reader all of a sudden stopped working. i have updated my drivers numerous times. device manager says drivers are working properly. i have uninstalled drivers and reinstalled them. when i plug in an sd card or memory stick pro duo, absolutely nothing happens. i've had this problem before, i installed new drivers and it worked for 2 days. wtf?

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.

Code 39 for cd/dvd drives is a common problem, you need to edit the registry to fix this error. See these instructions on how to fix code 39.

Acer aspire 5610-2762 ( or 5610z ) Has all the drivers says the audio is working but its not


Often sound devices are linked to the modem, with almost everyone using dsl these days they sometimes don't notice the modem hasn't installed correctly.
Go to Device Manager and update or uninstall your modem. If you uninstall the modem just do a restart and Windows will "detect new hardware" just let it reinstall the modem.
Hopefully after installing the modem Windows will suddenly find more new hardware and suddenly want to install a "media deivce" that is your soundcard, I have seen this many times back in the day of the dialup modem.

Your card reader on your computer isn't capable of reading SDHC cards. You have to use a card reader approved for SDHC use.

Hi How old is this laptop? If it is brand new, then you should be able to send it back to acer. Its the problem with drive or mainboard not with the drivers.
Thanks
