Gateway desktop can't read a sdhc 32gb memory card


well it should read it unless the reader is incapable of reading cards of that capacity.. Are you sure the card is good ? try it on another reader..

A firmware update wont be of any help there since the capacity is HARDWARE not software. If the card is good you will need to replace the reader to a newer model or acquire and external card reader.

Acer aspire t 180 cant get pc to recognize digital camera photo memory card


Has the computer recognized the memory card in the past? If so, try download and reinstalling the memory card driver.

Get online and got to www.google.com In the google search box type: "Acer Support" (without the quotes and put your manufacturer name before Support). Look for downloads and drivers. Enter your model number and operating system when requested. Download and install the Card Reader drivers.



If after installing the drivers the reader still does not work, you can purchase a multi format card reader that will plug into you usb port from Tiger Direct for less than $15. at



http://www.tigerdirect.com



When the site comes up just put in the search at the top "SD Card Reader or XD Card Reader" depending you your type and press GO. You can sort the returned results by Price Low to High.



Do you have a USB Cable that came with the camera that you can plug into one of the usb ports on the computer? If so, try that. It's another way of getting pictures off the camera. Plug the cable on the camera and into the computer then turn the camera on. The computer will recognize the camera and install the drivers. You can navigate through the camera folders just like you do any other device to find the pictures.

Centros Secure Digital Card Reader Model No.4418951 will not read a SanDisk SDHC Card 4GB.


1. Safely remove the Card and Card Reader from your system.

2. Plug in the Card Reader to the system.

3. Now, insert the Card in the reader.

4. Let the system take some time to detect the devices.

* If the Card Reader donot read the card, try another card to check if there is problem with the reader or card!

* If the Card Reader still donot detect, check it with another system.

tell me if it works...tc! :)

Acer 1691wlmi 4-in-1 card reader wont' work


Hi Traveler,

let me help you with this, but first...

Is it a USB Card Reader?

has it worked before on any other pc that you know of?

when you plug it into your computer does windows detect it?have you been able to install it?

If it doesnt detect it does the card reader itself have a power switch?

is there a light on the card reader? if so does it come on?


thanks in advance for answering my questions. I'm here to help.

Multi card reader fault after re-boot?


I have a akasa internal 3.5 card reader, 4 slots and a usb port, no fans. Installed ok and worked one time then dissappeared in my computer and device manager.

Looking at the plug it had a wire in where a dummy connector on the motherboard connects. Took the cover off the card reader and looked at the other end and on that connectot no wire. Reversed the lead and all up and running. No Quality assurance any more!

A card got stuck in the card reader but now it wont read any cards i put in, there is no hardware faults according to the device manager


If you were able to take the card out, take a close look with a flashlight to see if any pins (inside the card reader) are bent and/or making contact with other pins or the casing. They should be straight especially if it is a Compact flash memory reader (the older bigger media storage )
