I am running Vista home premium 32 bit. Is there a way to get this computer to recognize my Sandisk 4gb microsdhc card?

My Acer didn't have a Micro SDHC slot so I had to use a card reader.

Sorry, if you don't call Acer and report the failure you are telling them it works fine.

It does not read SHDC. Only good for under 2G.

Sorry. My card reader is good for 2 and more GB.

What do you have? Mine is a iConnect; I bought this awhile back when any sd above 2G. would cost an arm and a leg.

Mine came with the 4GB card from Sandisk.

9.99 so no arm or leg to part with.

Here is what I found out...
Thank you for contacting Acer America. I?ll be happy to assist you.
Your computer does not support Micro SDHC memory cards even if the driver is updated. Driver updates does not add hardware features to a computer. You need to purchase an external card reader.
