I still have the problem: With my netbook, If I start with an SC card in the left slot on boot-up then the left slot will recognize card and allow removal and it will still recognize it upon reinsertion. The right media slot will not recognize a media card. If I reverse it and have an SD card in the right slot then it will work fine, but the left media slot will not recognize a media card.

, so maybe they are correct SD at boot makes no difference..
The simplest way to activate both card slots is to create a file /etc/modprobe.d/aspire-fix-sd-slots.conf with the following contents:
looks like the same information as on that ubuntu link..
Now, the only question I would ask, is have you ever run windows and got it to work, whichever card reader slot you used (left or right)
