Acer Aspire 4520 doesn't read SDHC cards

\015 Can't read an SDHC card via the card reader on the laptop or via an external card reader. Is there a simple solution to fix this such as an updated driver download or do I need to purchase a new card reader?\015

Answers :

No, there is a simple fix. However, it involves flashing the BIOS on the laptop.

Don't worry, there's not much chance of it going wrong as long as you follow their steps of flashing the BIOS (Incidentally, it's stored on most laptop hard drives).

The reader will accept a larger chip if the updated BIOS on the laptop manufacturer's website is written to do it. Contact the manufacturer via email first just to make sure.
