I have an Acer Aspire T180-197Z. I have Vista Home Basic 32 bit. The PC is about 5 years old and up untill now i have had no need to use the SD card reader. I put a card in the reader and a drive appears but when i try to open/expore it just buffers. When i take the card out then it states Open and then insert a disc into the drive. I have tried with other cards blank and full with the same problem. I have looked on Acers site and cant see any help with updating the drivers. My Microsoft updates are all the latest. If anyone can help with this problem i would be thankfull

This article from Microsoft may clear things up, and even point the way to a solution :

As I remember the sequence, XP did not natively support SD cards at all, there was a work around that sometimes worked. Vista supported SD cards but only some SDHC ones, while Win 7 supports them all. I gave the article above a quick look and it seems that Vista is sensitive to the structure of SDHC cards. If worst comes to the worst, you may have to change your brand of card, but you can always recover the data on them using a computer running Win 7 and transferring it to a temporary USB drive.

Just letting you know Chris the Hotfix seems to have done the trick. The Cards are now readable. Thanks again

Glad it helped. Nothing worse than having a bunch of possibly important images you can't get at.
