OK, so I've been at this for about 5 hours now, and I really am all out of options. Well, in terms of searching for solutions myself, so now I have to start a thread of my own in hopes that someone will be able to help me with my specific problem.
So here we go.
My Computer Model: Acer Aspire 5630
My SD Card : Duracell 2GB SD Card
Current OS: Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Previous OS: Windows Vista (Home Edition I think, but I don't think it matters much)
My Problem: I installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my computer a few days ago and I have encountered several problems; one being that my SD CardReader will not work. I believe it is because i don't have my CardReader driver installed, so I went out to get it.
Unfortunately, most of my drivers were built to be compatible with Vista and not 7. I was able to install my Audio driver, but my CardReader driver does something i did not expect. Instead of telling me that there is a compatibility issue, the InstallWizard finishes, and then prompts me to restart. After I restart, nothing has changed. My driver isn't listed in my Device Manager (not sure what it's SUPPOSED to look like to be honest), and the darn thing still won't read my SD card.
The drivers I've tried installing so far are as follows:
-CardReader_ENE_3.00.00_Vistax86 (from the Acer Support site)
-CardReader_ENE_5.1.2600.2010_XPx86 (from the Acer Support site)
-Cardreader_Jmicro(JMB385)_1.00.12.07_Win7x86x64 (from SD card reader/Laptop
, post #20 from computersplus)
-CardReader_O2_v3.31.02_Win7x86x64 (don't remember where I got this, but I believe it was for a new model of Acer Aspire with Windows 7)
-O2Micro Flash Memory Card Driver 3.00 (from SD card reader/Laptop
, post #2 from Jimbo45)
-O2Micro Flash Memory Card Windows Driver V.1.9 (Stylebook H12Y CardReader) (from SD card reader/Laptop
, post #10 from Jimbo45)
All of those act somewhat the same after an attempt at installing the driver. I run the setup, and it looks like it's installing normally. It would prompt me to restart in order to complete installation. After restarting, I pop my SD Card in and nothing is read. Device Manager doesn't show anything different either.
The results also vary a little bit but end up the same. Some of them don't prompt a restart, but still nothing can be read, and the Device Manager doesn't have anything new.
I think this was all i had to write XD. Thanks in advance.
I'll provide screenshots and all that jazz upon request.
