That slot is specially wired with a non-standard configuration for MiniPCIe. It uses most of the pins for a PATA/IDE connection, and doesn't have USB or SATA the way normal MiniPCIe does. In other words, you can't use it for anything other than a PATA/IDE drive.
There are folks who have wired up an internal USB hub and other things - see a summary of internal mods on mini 9
