Acer Aspire One - Card Reader not working

Postby jehicks87 on Sun Jan 23, 2011 12:38 am

My multi-card reader on my Acer Aspire will not read my SD card with LMDE. It worked under windows, so I know it's not a hardware issue. Any fixes for this? Thanks in advance!

This is a common issue with that netbook with Linux. I have the same problem.

A) buy a USB SD card reader (fairly cheap)
B) make sure you have tried both SD slots. I know it was reported that only one SD slot could be used as a boot slot.
LMDE Mate 64-bit, LM17 Mate 64-bit
Debian Xfce 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.10 64-bit, Xubuntu 14.04 64-bit, Antergos Xfce 64-bit, PCLinuxOS LXDE 64-bit
