Cannot detect SD flash memory

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. Does not detect SD Flash

I have an ACER Aspire 9423WSMi

so are you asking why is it not reading it automatically or that it does not read the card? check to make sure the 4Gb SD card is formatted properly so that Vista can in fact read it. hope this helps.

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!

Wont accept xd picture card

Hi, tecnil

Device cannot detect files on the memory card.


The memory card might be missing or inserted incorrectly. Verify that the memory card is inserted correctly.

The files might not be in the correct format. To print from the device control panel, the files must be in the sRGB JPEG format. To print other formats, you must use a software program on your computer.

You might have inserted more than one memory card. Only one card slot can be occupied for the device to detect JPEG files. Verify that only one card is inserted.

you may have to check the manufacturers website for a vista compatible driver (as it seems that the generic driver is not working here.)

Acer aspire 7004 flash card slot

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.
