    Default Using the mutimedia card reader in the acer aspire 5732z

    I can't figure out how to put in the Memory stick Pro Duo in the slot with out getting it stuck! It goes in so far that I'm only able to get it out with the point of a pencil and that is hard to do.

    I have looked in the manual and online and can't come up with a answer. I guess they thought you didn't have to know such a simple thing to do.

    Any help out there??

    Have a really good look at the memory card reader slot with a torch. Try to ensure you understand which contacts in the slot will match up to your card and insert it at the right place.

    Also read the spec carefully as Pro Duo's are not the same as Pro's and may be keyed differently.

    If it goes in right you then often have to push further to unlock/unlatch before it comes out . . like a retracting ballpoint pen
    If it isn't broken don't 'fix it' . . . or at least do this first !

    Thanks for the quick response. I tried to slip it back in but with the same results. The opening is larger then the Pro Duo. My manual does say it will take that card.
    I don't have to use that plug that was in do I?? That's the only thing I believe will keep it going in straight. If no more suggestions I will just use my card reader. I thought it would be more convenient to use the slot.
    Oh well......
    Thanks,
    Patrick

    You might need an adapter for that like this one.

    this is the case with some laptop memory card readers. We tried inserting one in a compaq before and had the same problem as yours.
