Thank you so much. I don't know how you figured this one out but I am sure glad you did. I spent the better part of 4 hours screwing up the notebook before I came across this post. It suprises me that the twits at Acer support can't post a simple little thing like this card reader driver
in the full knowledge that anyone upgrading the OS would run head long into the blessed little yellow triangle. ARGGGGG!!!! I guess they figure if your notebook is a couple of years old you should dole out a pocket full of cash and buy a new one. Then they can forget about you again in a couple of years.
