Acer Aspire card reader not acknowledging SD card

\015 I have an Acer Aspire 9500 running XP with a multimedia card reader as part of the equipment. I had never used it before but, in the past few months, I have tried a few different SD cards that work fine in my camera but the computer doesn't even acknowledge that the drive/reader exists when I insert the cards.I downloaded and installed the latest drivers for the device today and turned on Autoplay but to no avail. Any ideas what it's doing (or not doing)?Thanks a lot.\015

Go to Wal-Mart or K-Mart and such, you can get a SD reader/ writer (such as Targus, about $9 USD, what I use) and put your SD card into it, then plug into USB (USB 2.0 is current standard, but will work with USB 1.1, just slower). PC will ask if you want to play/record from/to the removable drive, select "take no action" then go to the "my computer" icon (or what ever you have named it) double click the drive letter for the flash/SD card (E,F,G etc.). open the file folder that you want to copy from <usually something like "100MEDIA" or such> (I STRONGLY recommend that you "COPY FILE(S)" and NOT "move file(s)" as that if something crashes you still HAVE the orig. files) select to copy to the correct drive letter/ file name(s) and PLEASE remember to "remove hardware safely" or you could KILL the files and/or the drive(s) that you were using. (did that TWICE before I realized what I was doing wrong). good luck!
