Question :

I couldn’t make it work. I just insert the SD card and nothing happens. Even in Disk management it doesn’t show up. I have tried a lot of SD working cards on 3 different Acer AO 756 and none of them worked. I have searched on different forums and more people have this issue but couldn’t find a solution. Please check it and maybe update the driver or post a solution. Thank you

NOTE: It is recommended that you plug your card reader to the back USB port on your PC to ensure that there is enough power from the USB port for the card reader to be detected properly.

2. Check under Device Manager

b. Select Manage.
c. On the left pane, click Device Manager.
