A Kingston 32Gb Class 4 that arrived this morning works fine. Froze the system the first time I put it in but after I took it out shut down all the programmes and reinserted it, it works fine, now formatted on the 9 and seems to be running perfectly.

Hi,

I'm using a Transcend 16GB class 6, and it's working fine so far :-)

That's odd. The same card, or rather one with the same description (the picture has been doctored to remove the capacity so they can use it for others) works fine for me. It did hang the first time I inserted it, but once I'd formatted it, it's been fine ever since. I keep it write-protected most of the time, after hearing nightmare stories about data loss, but those stories seem to come from a while ago before the SDHC driver was as stable as it is now.

Any good deals on this or other 16GB or 32GB SD?

What about USB 2.0 compatible thumb drives? They seem to be cheaper, but they "stick out"

I got mine from Amazon for around $35 I think. It has over 800 reviews and a rating of 4.5/5.
I would've liked a 32GB, but thought it was a bit expensive at this time. Prices will fall down undoubtedly.

Just make sure you get a Class 6 as it's the fastest so far. I'm playing video with no problems.

As you said, a usb stick is cheaper but not practical. I guess this is the best option aside from upgrading the SSD to higher capacity.

Or adding another SDHC inside the Mini9 with the "WWAN - to - MR04 PCIe card" upgrade. Then you have your XXX GB SSD card (for OS etc), the left slot XXX GB SDHC card, and the internal XXX GB SDHC card. For a total of XXX + XXX + XXX GB. For me, I have 32GB x 3 = 96GB total storage. More than I need, but I no longer worry about how many movies, tunes or applications I can carry with me ...

Thanks. Just ordered the 16GB version from Amazon, $37 with shipping. This will give me more than enough free space for email, presentations, music, Word Docs, etc. I agree, the 32GB is too expensive at over 2/3s more. After all I bought the Vostro a90 as a cheap OS X Netbook for simple tasks

Wow, never knew such a thing is possible. Good to know. But it's more than I care to spend on my Mini9 :-)

The 16GB SD will do for now. But I know a friend who'll go nuts over this. I emailed him the link.

Thanks.

I am using the 32G Sandisk Ultra II in my mini under 10.5.7 and it's great. I have a couple of DVDs on it that I watch with VLC. Its formatted FAT32.
