Cannot detect SD flash memory

Hi
My Acer T180/Vista does not detect my inserted SD flash card. The green light on the front panel of the computer right next to the SD slot does come on, but I cannot find the card with winexplorer nor does it automatically open as all my usb memory does. Thanks, for the help.

Check in "my computer" and see if it registers as a removable drive there. If not, then check in the device manager while the card is inserted and look for any yellow icons. There is a chance that the card reader need a driver installed or updated.
Hope this helps.

Also test your computer with another card. If that other card gets detected, it means the problem may be with the first card.

Acer aspire t180-d97z will not start ,1 long beep2 short ,


Hi.

There is a problem with the on-board video or the graphics card. If you have a standalone graphics card in the computer take it out, clean the slot and the brass contacts on the card and re-seat it.
Also reset the CMOS by removing the power cord and take out the motherboard battery for 20 minutes. Re-insert the battery and power cord and see of the computer will boot up with a display on-screen.



Good luck.

I cant seem to access MY SD Memory Card from my New Camera through the SD Card slot on the Front panel of My Aspire M1201 - The Green LED is on but no pop up and i cant find the correct the section to...


Newer cameras may have SDHC cards - these have a high capacity. Older computers can't read the newer SDHC cards - they can only read the old SD Cards. The SD card and SDHC cards look exactly the same. The SDHC card will probably say "SDHC" on it somewhere. Fortunately you can buy a USB SDHC card reader for a computer for around £2 on amazon. I would buy one of those. You could search the internet for "usb sdhc card reader".

SD MEMORY CARD!!!!


Hi Sandra,

If you are attempting to transfer photos off an SD card in your camera and you are connecting your camera directly to your PC then you may want to get an external SD card reader as this is a fairly common problem and an external reader should solve it.

If you are already using a card reader I would think that the cables connecting the reader to your computer are defective. To test this try connecting your card reader to a different USB port, if it functions fine then you know the problem is with the previous port you were connecting too.

ALSO, check in "my computer" and see if it registers as a removable drive there. If not, then check in the device manager while the card is inserted and look for any yellow icons. There is a chance that the card reader need a driver installed or updated.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!

Hard Drive


Hi,
That little "red flashing light" on the front of your computer case is the HDD activity LED. When it flashes it indicates that there's hard drive activity. No, you do not need to worry about if flashing.
Thanx for using fixya,
Hope my info helps.

It rather sounds like you're inserting the card after inserting the reader into the PC... am I wrong?

As long as the device is detected in the Device Manager (system properties), it should be fine.

Insert the card first, then insert the USB reader. From there, check that you get a drive-letter. If you do, great.. if it's brand new, it may require formatting the disk before you can open it and start putting things on it or using it in a camera.

When you say "no files are detected", i'm assuming you don't simply mean "there are no files already on the SD card"... because that's normal if it's new. =-]

Let us know!

Where can I see a picture of how to add memory to Acer Ast180 desktop?


Assuming it's the correct type of memory, plugging it in is all you should need to do. When you turn it on for the first time the BIOS may detect the extra memory and ask you to accept the changes, but if it does just accept them and it should work fine.
