    Question SD Card reader not working on Acer Aspire One

    Greetings;

    I purchased a new Acer Aspire One (NAV50) a month or so ago. It shipped with Win7, but I wiped it and installed Lucid on it after, oh, five minutes.

    The SD card reader worked fine in Win7 but has not worked with Ubuntu. I've tried three installs, both with a card in the slot and without. No matter what I do, no SD card will appear.

    Here's the results of lsusb:

    Same problem, although it's on a ZaReason Teo, not an AA1.

    Code:
    dmesg | tail
    gives

    Code:
    [  262.540160] usb 1-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 3
    [  262.673845] usb 1-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
    usb-storage module does not support it. See:

    Re: SD Card reader not working on Acer Aspire One

    I'm just passing through but have an Acer Aspire AOA 150 that works with the SD card on Ubuntu 10.4 (and 9.4 for that matter)

    I seem to remember the trick is to put the sd card in the slot and then power up the machine. One side is better than the other if I remember correctly. I use the RHS slot. Google will have loads of stuff about the issue, I'm sure.

    On a side note I use a 16gb micro sd card in a phone. I also have a USB carrier for it and is most effective. But it also came with an SD sized holder - so in future I will buy micro SD's.

    I saw that as well, as well as an article that says to have a SD card in the slot when you install Ubuntu.

    Neither trick works, alas. This model is different than yours, with only one SD slot (on the right).

    I read somewhere else (forgive me for not bookmarking or sharing the link) that there's possibly a driver issue at work here, or something in the Kernel that's causing it to not function. They've indicated that with this model netbook, the SD card slot doesn't work period. Also, Bluetooth doesn't function (it says there's Bluetooth in this laptop, but the FN+F3 key does nothing and no module shows up on a scan).

    Hopefully, with 10.10, this problem will be resolved, but I'm not holding my breath...

    Hi,
    I've also got an Acer AspireONE 532h netbook. I've had both 9.10 & 10.04 running on it and had no luck with the Media Card Reader. I believe it's an issue of there not being appropriate drivers available, for Linux, for the ENE Technologies UB6250 USB Mass Storage Controller. Certainly the only drivers I can find are for Windows, as from this site;
    http://www.station-drivers.com/page/ene-tech.htm

    Also it would be wrong to think that the Media Card Reader is natively supported in Windows, it's not. You have to install the appropriate drivers from the Acer Support Website, before it works. I know, as I've just installed Windows 7 Pro x86, and it was only after installing the ENE Driver Package from Acer that I was able to access cards in the media slot. I would therefore suspect that until someone writes a specific Linux driver for the ENE UB6250 USB Mass Storage Controller, the media card slot will never work in Ubuntu, or any other distro. I don't have the skills to do that myself, and it doesn't seem likely, to me, that either Acer, or ENE are going to do it either, so anyone game..........?

    On anther note, I was able to use Bluetooth in Ubuntu without any problems on my system. Are you sure you have a Bluetooth equiped model? It's a Broadcom 2046 Bluetooth 2.1+EDR chip in my AspireONE, and this worked fine in both 9.10 & 10.04, as well as now in Windows 7.

    (If you are wondering why I'm now running Windows 7, it was because of an issue with the Atheros WiFi adaptor. I could never get a reliable/stable connection with it in Ubuntu, so in the end I've had to give up and go over to Windows instead, where the WiFi works flawlessly.)
