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.

I put my sd card in slot to download pic and its not reading


If you have not used this card with this laptop before it is possible there is an incompatibility with the card type and the reader. SDHC cards are generally no compatible with card readers built into laptops. IT is due to the compression algorithm used to increase the storage capacity on the card. There is no PHYSICAL difference the higher storage capacity is made possible by configuring the way data is stored and revision 1.0 of card readers arent compatible. Try going to Acer and downloading a newere version of the card reader software if this doesnt work, try an older version card if possible.

My acer 3680 laptop wo't read a 4 gig hc sd card


Good day sir/maam, you may need a driver for your SD card reader for vista. pop in the cd that came with your notebook to the cd drive. make sure its for Vista.
If still does not work, plug in a non HC sd, like a 1 gig SD card. if it works, then the card reader only supports non hc SD. ( I know it usually supports HC cards ) check also for viruses. there are viruses that can dissable sd card readers. just make sure your laptop is virus free.

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.
