Windows 7: ENE Card Reader on Acer Aspire 5050

ENE Card Reader on Acer Aspire 5050

I used to run XP before switching over and have never ran vista. The XP drivers for this device worked great from the Acer website. I have downloaded the Vista drivers now and tried them both in regular mode and then after again in compatibility mode (Vista SP1). This did not work. It is recognizing my card reader but the driver's or something is stopping it from working. When I load in an SD card the sound is not made and no drive appears. Am I missing something? I have google'd and gotten all my other devices to work flawlessly. This is the last one and I will have a working Windows 7 machine. Please help

Edit: I have found out a manual for my lapop and it shows the device as "ENE CB714". Scouring google for drivers but haven't seen a thing yet.

Insert the card. Go to Explorer.

Right click the drive.

Open as Portable Device

A new window appears.

Can you read/use the disk?

Also, insert a different card to rule out a faulty card.

In XP when inserted the SD card it would pop up a new drive. In Win 7 no drive is showing when the SD card is inserted or removed. I get an error when installing the drivers also saying it's not meant for this system only Vista and older. I have 2 SD cards and they work fine everywhere else except for this laptop after upgrading to Windows 7. I am thinking I need to install the drivers differently or get proper Windows 7 drivers. I have looked on the ENE website and it only describes the chip I have and does not provide any links for drivers. Any other suggestions?

How does the Device appear in Device Manager?

Did you do this...

Insert the card. Go to Explorer.

Right click the drive.

Open as Portable Device

Yes or No.

If yes, Report result.

In device manager it shows everything as working properly. And no I did not do that because a drive does not show up when I insert the card. Wish it was. Antman thanks for bearing with me.

"It is recognizing my card reader but the driver's or something is stopping it from working."

So, this means the device appears in Device Manager? Please provide a screen shot (Start, Search, Snip - use the Snipping Tools).

Disable the setting shown in yellow.

ANTMAN!!!

Before I did what you said I wanted to try a few things. Well I went to the setup for the drivers and right clicked the file and had windows 7 search for the best compatibility mode to run the setup. It ended up choosing XP SP2 and installed the drivers without a problem. I wrote this down in case I have to format again in the future. I am so happy now! My laptop is now fully functional in Windows 7. Thanks again Antman for your help. Hopefully this will help others too.

It is a good thing when our computer works the way we need it to.

If it is any consolation, my drives do not automatically respond (autorun) when I insert the cards. I know how to fix it, but I never know what one of the children might stick in there.

I ran the Windows 7 upgrade advisor and the only negative result I recieved was, " ENE Card Reader drivers are not compatible with Windows 7".

I've searched the web, went to ENE's site, which has no driver support and could find nothing !

Good luck !

Guess I'll buy a new card reader !

Hi!
You don't need to buy a new card reader. I've experienced Windows 7 installations in multiple Acer notebooks and everything went well with ENE card readers using Vista drivers, even when Windows 7 was in a beta.
Try installing manually your Vista driver from http://support.acer.com (choose the same edition of Vista from the list that you have now in Windows 7).
Good luck!
