Re: SD card slot problem
Yes, these HC cards require a different reader, than traditional SD cards. The builtin one on the laptop probably doesn't support them, since any SD card above 2gb is technically considered an HC SD card. so my advice is to go to a cheap computer parts supplier, and see if they have a reader that will work for HC SD Cards.
DAMN THE MAKERS OF FLASH MEMORY FOR BEING SO COMPLEX!!!!

Did you insert the memory card properly? because if your memory card is not inserted properly, the SD card reader may seem not to work. And if probably the problem is from the SD card reader slot, then you have to give it to an engineer for repair or better still take your laptop to Hp customer service center for repair. Thanks
Choose your operating system, either XP or Vista and then under where it says chipset choose Ricoh Driver and download now. choose download by internet browser. Save it to the desktop if possible and then run the file so it installs.
If you go thru installing the drivrr and the card is still not being read by the laptop then the motherboard is bad.
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.

what type of memory card u want to insert the memory card slot is on the left side of the laptop beneath expess card slots next to usb ports on the left side , pls check that it supports the card u are trying to use for reading it, it only supports XD/SD/MS PRO DUO/ and not mini sd or trans flash or mmc or some other types the slot is clearly marked with icons of the card types it supports just press this like one inch slot which contains a dummy card to fill the space just push and this dummy card will come out from the slot then insert the supported card type into the slot and the windows will recognize it in my computers as a removable drive icon , pls let me know if i can help u more on this
The SD/MMC memory slot is already configured to read standard and HDSD cards. Just remove the DELL blank from the slot by pushing it in until it clicks and release it. Then pull it out. Insert the SD/MMC card into the slot and push it in until it clicks. The DELL Blank is shorter than an actual SD/MMC card, so don't try to push the SD/MMC card any further than the 'click'. Remove by pushing in until it clicks, release, remove.
are u sure that the SD card fits in the slot perfectly and doesnt come out?which SD card is it,is it a MINI SD or MICRO SD? because for these two u must use SD CARD ADAPTER.. only then the card will sfit in perfectly. Also when it is inserted properly and it fits in then u will hear a DING sound in ur laptop whether ur running VISTA,XP or ne other OS and also u can see the Memory card as the "name" of the card or as "REMOVABLE DISK" in "MY COMPUTER".Please confirm me with this step and ill help u out furthur.
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.
