    Okeeeeeeey.

    So like, I lost my Micro SD Reader stick thing,
    so I thought: Instead of buying another one,
    I should use the SD card adapter, since I do have
    an SD card slot.

    So I set it up and then inserted it into the slot,
    but then computer did not detect it.

    Yep. Help?


    P.S.
    I don't have a MicroSDHC card [​IMG]

    mostly you`ll need to install drivers for a special SD card reader.

    Even in windows 7

    I would guess your card is MicroSDHC, while the card reader isn't SDHC compatible.

    The card adaptors also have a write protect tab, make sure it''s in the off position. They are fairly temperamental and can take a few attempts for them to work.

    First, it's not MircoSDHC.
    And what is that write protect tab? Is that the lock thing?

    Try cleaning the contacts on the SD card.

    So your MicroSD is 2 GB or smaller? Any larger and it could be an SDHC problem.

    Go into your device manager and check to see if anything is showing up from the card reader to the card itself.

    This way, you can always and accurately find all types of drivers without the need of opening up a computer or wasting too much time.

    Code:
    PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_803B&SUBSYS_FF101179&REV_00
    PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_803B&SUBSYS_FF101179
    PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_803B&CC_018000
    PCI\VEN_104C&DEV_803B&CC_0180

    ...so, what do I do next...?

    You google them to find the drivers. It's really not difficult.

    You have a Texas Instruments 5-in-1 card reader. Try the drivers on Acer's site http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/notebook/as_3680.html if they don't work, do a manual install and point Windows to the inf file in the ttinst folder.

    If the computer doesn't detect it, there's not much you can do.

    I'd see if it's reported as being present in the computer BIOS, my PC will display 4 USB highspeed devices present as it boots.
