Re: acer aspire 5920 notebook and the 5 in 1 sd card...

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.

Can i imput a sim card in an aspire 5742

in a word, no.
If you are trying to get photos from your phone, use a micro SD card. Your laptop should have a standard SD card readers, and with an adapter you can get the information off the Micro SD card.

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.

I put my sd card in slot to download pic and its not reading

If you have not used this card with this laptop before it is possible there is an incompatibility with the card type and the reader. SDHC cards are generally no compatible with card readers built into laptops. IT is due to the compression algorithm used to increase the storage capacity on the card. There is no PHYSICAL difference the higher storage capacity is made possible by configuring the way data is stored and revision 1.0 of card readers arent compatible. Try going to Acer and downloading a newere version of the card reader software if this doesnt work, try an older version card if possible.

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.
