Re: CD & SD Card stuck in Asus Pro31F notebook
Gant really help on the sd prob.sd usually push in to insert and push in again to remove.
cant imagine how you can get cd stuck between rom and chassis.anyway if you look closely at your rom you will see a small hole.you push a thin piece of wire into this to eject the rom hopefully giving you more room to play with and remove disk.a paperclip made straight is an ideal tool for this.
as for repair;tell me your model and i'll check to see if I have it
I have nearly all hp service repair manuals,some toshiba and ibm

Good day sir/maam, you may need a driver for your SD card reader for vista. pop in the cd that came with your notebook to the cd drive. make sure its for Vista.
If still does not work, plug in a non HC sd, like a 1 gig SD card. if it works, then the card reader only supports non hc SD. ( I know it usually supports HC cards ) check also for viruses. there are viruses that can dissable sd card readers. just make sure your laptop is virus free.
the original file (apparently version 2.0) is here: http://18.104.22.168/search?q=cache:2288as3q0skJ:www.asus.it/support/download/selectftp.aspx%3Fl1_id%3D3%26l2_id%3D45%26l3_id%3D0%26m_id%3D1%26f_name%3DCardReader_050118.zip~zaqwedc+CardReader_050118.zip&hl=en
the updated driver (version 2.3) is located here: http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=V6V&SLanguage=de-de scroll down to where you see RICOH card reader driver
or more specifically this link here: http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/nb/V6V/CardReader_XP_2K_050808.zip
even though the site is primarily in german, all the component names are in english, go figure. So it would seem that the asus comp manufacturer are a little more forthcoming than dell in this particular instance. for example, nowhere on my component sheet does it say that RICOH is the manufacturer for the card reader, that's something i got from you guys on the forums
anyway, after installing this driver and rebooting my comp, card reader immediately recognized both MMC and SD media. unfortunately, it was only able to access the mmc card, and i'll be shipping my comp off to dell for whatever motherboard replacement they're willing to give me (which i don't mind, so long as it works when it comes back to me) but i thought these links might be helpful for others who are having the same problem.
Hi... Remember that the SD card has a little slot at the center we'll use that to retrieve the card. First, find a "medium safety pin" and straightened it and on the sharp edge, use a plier to make a little hook... Use that to pull it out....
Use an extended card holder to insert the SD card because the design is for the mini stick SD card...
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.
