Nice to see a page I made being used

I asked the nice lady at Dell tech support so that list is 100% guaranteed.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.

Can you use both a Memory Stick and SD/SDHC at the same time?

Interestingly dell.com.au (Australia) states the Mini comes with a 4 in 1 memory card reader...

They consider SD and SDHC as different card types even though they are the same form factor.

No, that is incorrect. You cannot use both SD and MS cards at the same time, only one will fit in the slot.

Not sure if anyone is interested but I found Hitachi Micrdrive Drivers that fool the computer into thinking the SDHC card is a hard drive. It shows up as D: drive in My Computer and shows the total size and available space left. You have to format it in NTFS first then install the drivers. I also learned that you can return it back to Fat 32 afterward which is highly recommended. NTFS crippled the cards speed. Once you convert it back it picks right back up again. I used the Kingston 32gb class 4 card and it holds all my music. No problems so far although if you have alot of music, the first time you click on the music folder it will take about 30 seconds or more to populate. After that it tends to hold it in cache. If anyone needs the drivers let me know.
