    So I purchased 2 32 GB Lexar Echo ZX backup drives thinking they'd make a great addition to my sleek and sexy Air....Turns out they don't work, neither on my windows 7 partition.
    The keys would have complemented the awesome design of my baby :(

    Anybody know any replacements?

    I assume you mean storage space, as opposed to RAM.

    Why don't the Lexar drives work?

    I have no clue... they require a program offered by lexar to run, but when I tried to find them on disk utility, they didn't show up at all...nothing, nada, zip....I'm kind of pissed!
    An etra 64 GB to the 128 GB already present would have been amazing!!

    You must reformat these drives before they will work with a Mac.
