Media Card Reader problem

I have an issue with my Acer Aspire notebook. Since I bought the machine there has always been an issue with the built in 5in1 Memory card reader. Running Vista, the reader will read one SD card fine. When I remove the card using the safe eject of hardware all is fine but will not read anyother card even the same one after it is inserted again. What's more if i try to plug in a Memory stick DUO the whole machine hangs and crashes.

Any one have any ideas about this?

Thanks

    I'm having the same problem. Card worked in my Gateway desktop system's memory card reader, but when plugged into my Acer laptop it says the card hasn't been formatted and needs to be formatted first. I've used this card tons and it works in my other computer. I've even tried saying "Yes" on do you want to format this card twice, but both times it finishes with "Was unable to complete format" or something like that.

I'm not sure what is entailed in "using safe eject of hardware" on your set, but unless you are actually in (during) the process of reading or writing files to the card there is no need to use anything like that with SD cards. That may be causing some interference with subsequent cards, so I would try simply unplugging the card and plugging in the next with no intervening operations. that is how it works with evry card reader I have ever used.

My Laptop


If you are talking about a memory card? The laptop does not have a card reader built in so you would either have to buy an external card reader or have a card reader built into a home printer. Place the card in the card reader and plug the reader into the laptop's usb port or make sure your printer is connected and the reader active, you can tell this in "My Computer", you will see the reader appear as a device. Now, find the files you want to copy and copy them, now right click on the card device and click paste, the computer will copy them to the card.
