Won t recognize sd card


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. You may also try using the card is different computer and check. Also try using another card in the computer with the issue and check. If the issue is not resolved please revert back with the model number.

Computer Cannot read my SD Card


STOP SD MEMORY CARDS ARE NOT ALL THE SAME !This is a very common issue as of late because of the fairly recent addition to the market place with the "HC" and "XD" Cards. I have found most computer older than 2008 wont read HC and XD cards however I'm sure there are USB card readers that can fill this gap available at your local pc shop. Please look Carefully at these different formats Standard SD: 1 MB to 4 GB readable by almost all computers most often up to 2GB rarely up to 4GB 6468175.jpg

SDHC: 4 GB to 32 GB Most older Computers Cannot read the the HC format, good however for NEWER devices such as camera's, video cameras and recent phones (my cannon powershot S80 will NOT read HC format, nor will my 2007 laptop.)

SDXC: 32 GB to 2 TiB same limitations as above, Great cards for Digital Video Camera though!

here is a wikipedia note "Changes to the interface of the established format have made some older devices designed for standard SD cards (≤4 GB) unable to handle newer formats such as SDHC (≥4 GB). All SD cards have the same physical shape, which causes confusion for many consumers"
So.. in closing MAKE SURE your device supports HC and or XC before your purchase one! Also be aware that most of these cards have a lock switch on them to write protect the data, located on the side of the card. It MUST be in the Unlocked position to operate normally. Hope this helps someone out there. please use the thumbs up if it clears up anything for you! Gurvy

Need to plug in large sd card into smaller slots on acer computer what do I need


You will need an adapter "Yes" You have a Micro vs a Mini I believe here is a good link for the type of adapter you may need. They are found at Bestbuy and Walmart as well I just bought one. Also amazon.com has really great pricing and fast shipping I use them all the time for these sort of items for sure. I just checked the price at amazon and it was $7.00 instead of $19.00

How can i transfer pictures from acer iconia to memory card


This Tablet Personal Computer [PC] takes Micro Secure Digital [SD] Cards. To transfer pictures from a Digital Camera to this PC, if the Camera also takes Micro SD cards, is simply a matter of removing the Micro SD card from the Camera and installing it in the PC's Micro SD Card Slot and then waiting for the PC's AutoPlay function to serve up the photo files stored on the card, which can then be Dragged and Dropped into a photo folder on the PC.


If the Camera takes SD Cards, then a Micro SD to SD Card Adapter is required so that the PC's Micro SD Card can fit in the camera before pictures are taken and then disconnected from the adapter afterwards, for re-insertion in the PC.


If the Camera takes a different type of Memory Card, then a Multi Card Reader might be required, which would be connected to the computer's USB Port and the Memory Card slotted into its matching slot in the Card Reader.


See Acer Iconia Tablet PC Specifications here (or on similar specification pages):

My acer can read an sd card,How can I get it to


While the spec sheet does not say SDHC specifically I am surprised it does not read and write it since it is an up to date unit but if it wont you can get an inexpensive USB 2.0 reader and it will work. I would check and make sure that the SDHC card is formatted properly if it is go with the adaptor. Good Luck

Can not read SD card, game pad


You need to install your camera's drivers from the disk that came with it.
Unplug your camera from the computer >> insert the camera's driver CD >> install drivers >> restart the computer >> connect your camera via USB >> a windows pop up will let you know that it has found a new device. If you don't see the pop up this means your USB port is malfunctioning and it's normally from a malfunctionnig motherboard.

If you want to connect it through your card reader I'm affraid you need to buy a new card reader that supports 2G SD card. your current card reader does not supports 2G cards.

Kind Regards
