Question about Computers & Internet
I just got an Acer Aspire AS5720Z notebook.
It has a 5-in-1 card reader in it.
My memory Stick Pro Duo card is extremely small. The manual says the card reader will read it. There is NO eject button that I can see. I'm afraid to put the card in without knowing how to eject it.
How do you EJECT the card from the card reader?
Is there a software eject like on a MAC?
Hi, the memory Stick Pro Duo card is (micro), half size as you have noticed you need to buy an SD adapter card. You put your Pro Duo card into the SD card & than put it into your card reader.
Once you see the SD adapter card on the web site you'll understand. You can buy this at a local BestBuy. Most web sites sell the adapter as a combo, you'll get a micro card & adapter.
Click the link below.
Look at SanDisk 2GB Ultra II Memory Stick PRO Duo w/Adapter
& you will understand.
Have more questions? Just ask.
Good Luck & Have a Great Day!

I had the same problem, and a little tape and MacGuyvering fixed it!

A piece of tape on the end of the card folded over on itself works pretty well, and doesn't protrude too badly off the side of the card.
Just some simple scotch tape.

I have the same problem on my HP dv6449us. The 5-in-1 media reader does not handle memory stick pro duo. I cannot get it to seat properly in the slot; the memory stick pro seems too big. I tried to insert it toward the top or the bottom, but all I got was the blue led blinking for a few seconds but no mounting from XP. If I insert it too far, then the only way to get it out is using a pair of tweezers. HP's manual seems simple enough. It says you gently push it in until it seats. Well, it never seats! And it certainly can get stuck if you don't have a tweezers. To this day (I've had this laptop for almost 3 years), I have only gotten the memory stick pro duo to work once. I was trying to pull it out with tweezers and it accidentally made the right contacts with the pins and XP recognized it and mounted it. I was able to copy photos and format the memory stick pro duo. But that was the only time and I had to use tweezers to get it out. Since then I have never been able to duplicate this. If a SD adapter is required, then this is news to me. HP certainly did not make this clear.

This is because HP does not have any tested information of XP on your Notebook, and one more thing is that HP has not yet released all the drivers of XP for your Notebook
