Try rebooting with a card in the card reader. Guess I’ll keep checking back here for an update. After doing both of these things, the reader formatted without any problems. As you mentioned uninstalling and reinstalling the driver in Device Manager you may want to “Roll Back Driver” there as an update could have caused this problem initially and reinstalling the updated driver wouldn’t solve it. Posted on Nov 19, If the reader is bad, thats integrated into the motherboard so the motherboard would need to be replaced.

SD Card Reader Not Working on Acer Aspire 5600 Laptop

Still will not show up under my computer Posted by Scarecrow2 on Dec 06, Acer Aspiresame problem as Scarecrow.

If you still get the same message try another SD card in that reader or try to see if another computer will read your SD card, if another computer will read the SD card and the slot still won’t recognize the sd cards properly, then you know at that point the reader is bad.

SOLVED: SD Card Reader Not Working on Acer Aspire Lap – Fixya

Anonymous Feb 15, I installed Windows 7 on my Acerwhich originally came with XP, and the card reader stopped working. I just used this asplre on my Acer z. Think it is a power issue, to many usb’s eat all available power and the first item to get drained of power is the sd slot.

Posted on Jul 18, Uninstall your existing driver, then downloa and instal this one.

Have an Acer I noticed the above response is just a spam ad. Looks like a viable solution, but the only problem is my driver version ends in ; the Hotfix is for the version ending in But the same card works well in dell computer.

Guess I’ll keep checking back here for an update. Acer Aspire Notebook.

Try rebooting with a card in the card reader. I had a similar problem where my xspire card reader would not show up in explorer.


But that didn’t asplre. Posted on Apr 19, Anonymous Jan 07, Posted on Oct 19, The SD should be visible from that window.

Posted on Dec 28, I thought this was strange, so after doing a little research, I ended up going to Acer’s site, where I found a driver for the reader, and installed it on my computer. I cant get any success from any Acer website, all seem to be having the same problems. You can’t post conmments that contain an email address.

Check the driver version for SD controller in device manager. Will try to look other places on the web for hints or call Mfg But I went to the Acer website and downloaded the XP driver Thanks I have a WLMiand when I put the card in it just pops up with the safely ader hardware icon.
