There should be 5 slots. Near each slot has the trademark of the card that the slot is for. If you are unable to identify the trademarks or there aren't any ways of finding which slot is which, then try each slot. Do not force your SD card into the slot. There should be only one slot that is the perfect fit for the SD card. Just slightly change the angle of the SD card until it slides in. The SD card has little to no extra room so it will take a little while to get the SD card in. Also the slot is spring loaded so you should here a click when it is in correctly.

If you have trouble, just keep trying and don't force it in. Trust me that it will fit if it is the right slot. Sometimes I get my SD card into my Wii or laptop in under a minute and sometime I have to mess with it for over 5 minutes (the angle of the stand for the Wii doesn't help at all).

Once you get the SD card in correctly, it will show up as a drive in "My Computer" but Windows XP and Vista have normal alerts with a "new hardware found" tone. Think of it as an USB flash drive that is smaller and goes into a specific slot.

When you are done, just push the SD card in and the slot should eject the card so you can pull it out.

Good luck and I hope you get it in.

Sd card in card reader - when viewing - wavey colured lines and sound - do i need to download a pdf


No PDF I know of will help you :)...a pdf is not software of any sorts..PDF stands for Portable Document Format and is used for documents only. Having said that, are you able to get the items off of the SD Card or is it so distorted that you can't get it? If so, a practical option would be to try cleaning any dust in the SD card slot and try again...or try to obtain an external card reader and try it that way. A free option would be to go to your local WalMart photo center and see if it happens there as well...if it happens at WM-most likely your SD Card is bad...if it doesn't the external card reader is a sure fix.

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".

The full specification of your laptop is located HERE. It shows that you do not have any card (mini or SD Cards) slots.The only option left in order for you to use and access any memory card is to buy an "external" USB-type Card Reader. There are 3-in-1 and 5-in1 Card Readers that can be connected via your USB port. In these card readers, you can plug in your memory sticks or memory cards and your computer can then access it.

The m2 adapter i have does not fit my acer aspire laptop yet my laptop card reader says it reads m2 memory cards. is there a certain way of putting the card in to the memory card reader.


I think that with smaller memory cards like m2 and t-flash(micro SD) you would have to use their adapter(a card with a slot that normally converts it to SD) before you can slot it in.

Helpwith downloading from our sd card to our aspire 5920-6313 laptop pc we did it yesterday but for somereason cann't today


pull the sd card out of the laptop and then reboot the laptop restart it most people put their laptops on standby for some reason and ushally causes more conflicts then need be. Try that see if it helps if not I will look at your units documentation to see if there is anything related to that which would solve this issue quickly for you.

Having problem loading pictures from our sd card onto our acer aspire 5920-6313 laptop we did it once and now cann't


Well, you've described the problem so well I'm just going to tell you to use a file manager to copy the files over and delete them off the SD card once you're pleased.

Otherwise, If you don't remember what photo management tool you used, perhaps you need to go through them by roster, Picasa2 through whatever camera maker's application you likely used.

SD card reader


Is the SD reader built in? If so, you should just be able to insert the SD card into the slot, and it should appear in My Computer.
