Acer Aspire Desktop PC (AM3100U3201A) Memory Card Reader
My new computer did not have an owner's manual, and I can't seem to figure out how to use the memory card reader. It supports the Smart Media card, but I can't find a slot on the front that is the correct size.
Any ideas? As you can probably detect, I am a novice using media readers; and could probably use a manual for the computer as a whole.
My card fits in the card slot but Vista 64 premium recognized it initially but not any more. I don't know if I associated it with the wrong program or what, but it now does not even give it a drive letter when I plug it in. I had a similar problem on XP with a USB pocket drive and the IT guy came and disassoicated it with a specific drive letter that was unavailable and it worked fine. I wonder if that fix works here....I just don't remember what he did and can't find a similar screen in Vista.....Help please

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.

Plug in a Memory Card, in the Card Reader, then Right-Click on My Computer Icon, Click on Manage, Then go to Disk Management, If you can find the Memory card Detected there but without a drive letter, then right-click on it and Give it a distinct(New) Drive letter and apply, but if it already has a drive letter assigned, then change it to a new one...i.e, assign to it a new Drive letter.
I would like to inform you that Acer's laptop doesn't support all kinds SD memory cards available in local market. Its not compatible with all physical dimensions of various memory card companies. So in that case you need to use EXTERNAL Memory card reader which is attachable to USB ports.
If this solution was helpful to you then please rate 100% (or FIXYA) for this solution, otherwise don't rate at all. It was my pleasure helping you.

You need to purchase or borrow a USB memory card reader.
When you insert the SD card in the reader and then connect it to your USB port on your computer, the computer will see it as an external memory device.
Your computer doesn't support compact flash cards. Your SD slot is a 5-in-1 card reader, supporting Secure Digital (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick® (MS), Memory Stick PRO? (MS PRO), xD-Picture Card? (xD). The big slot is for PCMCIA devices.
