Windows 7: Aspire 9810 Card Reader driver to read Memory Cards beyond 2GB

Aspire 9810 Card Reader driver to read Memory Cards beyond 2GB

Hey Guys (and Gals, if any)...

I have upgraded my Vista Ultimate Aspire 9810 to Win 7 Ultimate(32). Everything is fine, so far, except for the 5-in-1 Memory card reader. It only reads up to 2GB. I cannot remember, when I had Vista Ultimate on it, if it read beyond 2GB.

Any ideas!?!?!!

Are there any updated drivers that support beyond 2GB on this Aspire? I hate to add a reader via USB for that only and wastes a port.

Thanks!

If there's a driver for it, it'll be at Acer Europe - Service & Support, Drivers & Utilities, Downloads, Notebook, Aspire 9810.

Try any relating drivers from XP and Vista as well.

It hope this helps.

Also don't forget to use compatibility mode when trying XP or Vista drivers. Compatibility Mode I see they offer XP and Vista 32 bit drivers on the Acer US. Site http://support.acer.com/drivers_download.aspx Fabe

Try using a generic driver.

Go to the device in device manager.

Right click > Properties.

Click on the Hardware tab and click the properties button.

Go to the driver tab and click uninstall (make sure you have the Acer drivers backed up).

Now 'click browse my computer for driver software' then 'Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer'.

Hopefully it will show the official Acer driver and the generic one (it may not support the generic one though, I'm not sure).

If the generic one is present pick the generic driver.

I hope this helps.

Hi paimei1211, you may be out of luck here, most older card readers cannot read the new SDHC cards anymore it may be worth spending a little amount of cash on one of the usb card readers

I was wondering this myself and I believe, although most likely it cannot read SDHC, it is still possible to get 4GB normal SD cards. I have one which I use in my old compact camera which only supports SD. However I have found it to not work in various other devices that only support SD.

Thanks everyone!!! I maybe be SOL on this one, but I will try what everyone suggests. I think I have the update from Microsoft to which archie123 was referring to; about reading SD cards upto 32GB.

I will let you all know what happens....

Ok Gents....

Yep I am SOL on this one. The older internal card readers can only go to 2GB. Oh well, I will need to purchase a USB reader...thanks everyone.
