    Acer Aspire 4520, same problem as Scarecrow. Checked out the link to Microsoft's Hotfix that was provided by Country. Looks like a viable solution, but the only problem is my driver version ends in 25088; the Hotfix is for the version ending in 20634. Guess I'll keep checking back here for an update.

I had a similar problem where my memory card reader would not show up in explorer. I found the problem was linked to using a USB mouse. There seemed to be some sort of conflict. I did a bit more looking around and found a solution that worked for me here....

http://www.runpcrun.com/cant-install-usb

I basically browsed to c:\windows\inf (which is a hidden folder so you must unhide it in your folder options) right clicked usb.inf and selected install. Everything started working.

I had the same problem on my Acer Aspire 5630.
First I tried installing the drivers I downloaded from Acer's website for my computer (which in my case were called CardReader_ENE_3.00.00_Vistax86). I even restarted the computer as it told me to. But that didn't work.
Then I removed the drivers completely (and said Yes to Windows Vista's question about whether it should delete the drivers from disk).
Then I installed the drivers downloaded from Acer.
And now, even without having restarted the computer, it works! I can change SD cards, and Vista immediately responds to it.

Hello all. Good news. I installed Windows 7 on my Acer 5601, which originally came with XP, and the card reader stopped working. But I went to the Acer website and downloaded the XP driver... works like a charm! Pleasant surprise, since Acer doesn't seem to support upgraded operating systems. Hope this helps.

I have an Acer 4520 and my internal memory card reader would not read a regular SD 2 GB card and kept telling me it needed to be formatted, I did this numerous times, with the result being unable to format. The reader had no problems reading and writing to a 4GB Mini SD with adapter. I thought this was strange, so after doing a little research, I ended up going to Acer's site, where I found a driver for the reader, and installed it on my computer. I then went to Microsoft's site and found the Service Pack 1 for Vista and also installed it on my computer. After doing both of these things, the reader formatted without any problems. I then made the mistake of thinking the Service Pack did the trick, so I removed the driver from Acer, luckily for me, Vista recognized what I did and went online and found the software to make the reader work again. So I am assuming that for this particular Acer, getting the driver from Acer, and if you don't already have it, getting the Service Pack 1 for Vista, might help fix problems that are occurring with the internal memory card readers on the computer. Hope this helps someone.

Think it is a power issue, to many usb's eat all available power and the first item to get drained of power is the sd slot. my aspire 5600(5633) had the same problem all i did was unplug my external hard drive from usb and the sd card was recognized instantly. i would suggest removing usb items one at a time and see if this resolves the problem before messing about with drivers.
hope this helps you Scarecrow2 or anyone else.

Don't know why but Acer tend to have driver that may and may not work, then wants a fee for support. Check the driver version for SD controller in device manager. Then google to search for newer driver. Lot of times, I managed to find a driver that is updated to fix the bug for Vista.

If you have XP, search on Microsoft, they have a patch that will fix the SD card reader problems.

If your Acer Aspire will not read SDHC or you can't get it working with Windows 7 or 8, use this TI card reader driver install by Toshiba. Uninstall your existing driver, then downloa and instal this one. It works perfectly on my 9410z. This driver works for all the Acer TI card readers. http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/downloadDetail.jsp?soid=1713025&pf=true

Are the contacts on the card ok? Have you tried another card? Have you gone to START....COMPUTER...RIGHT CLICK MANAGER? is the device not being recognised on there? Is there debris inside the reader? Can you find away of clearing out anything which may be INSIDE the card reader?? Its always a possibility when you think of how many people take food and drink and sit at the computer and drop food over the keyboard and everywhere else. I've dropped a WHOLE cup of tea over my laptop...incase anyone reading this does the same......quick thinking...tip laptop upside down...immediately remove battery.
remove as much of the water or tea or moisture as possible WITHOUT turning the laptop right way up. find somewhere warm and dry and store the laptop for at least 3 days fully open.. I did exactly this and after three days decided I had given it enough time. I plugged the battery in and it worked fine. I guess I was lucky and quick thinking saved a £400 laptop. I hope this helps anyone reading.

SOURCE: SD Card Reader Not Working on Acer Aspire 5600 Laptop

Please try another SD card as to eliminate the card as the source of the problem. As you mentioned uninstalling and reinstalling the driver in Device Manager you may want to "Roll Back Driver" there as an update could have caused this problem initially and reinstalling the updated driver wouldn't solve it.
Post back your results so that we may continue to help you troubleshoot this issue?
Thanks and good luck.

I have a acer Aspire Ei-571 laptop.I insert a sd card to it's card reader.sd card is a new one there arn't any files in that card. so when I insert the card to the reader I can't open it.so what do I need...


u more than likely need to format it first so your computer can read it.

see if it appears in windows explorer, if not copy a file then right click and send to the SD card and the option to format should appear, format it and this should fix your problem.

My SD card reader on my Sony Vaio will not read the card...it seems to know its in the slot, but won't read any data and says 'insert the SD card' if I go to computer and try to read it. Any thoughts?


Take a can of air and blow some into the slot to make sure dust or dirt isn't getting the way of that reader trying to read the sd cards.

If you still get the same message try another SD card in that reader or try to see if another computer will read your SD card, if another computer will read the SD card and the slot still won't recognize the sd cards properly, then you know at that point the reader is bad. If the reader is bad, thats integrated into the motherboard so the motherboard would need to be replaced.

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.

Open "my computer". The SD should be visible from that window. If you right click on the SD drive and chose "explore" from the drop down list it will open a window so you can access the files inside.
