    Hey all,

    I use my wife's old macbook MA700 and I recently lost my Kingston Traveler and decided to get something cool and nifty to replace it. I bought this Kingston microSDHC card with a USB reader. Got in the mail today, put it in, and nothing. So then I dug around looking for it on Finder, the desktop, search function, and still nada. As far as I can reckon, it might be because the reader is USB 2.0 and the port is USB 1.1, but I thought 2.0 was backwards compatible.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Well this is embarrassing. Having never used USB 2.0, I've been putting it in upside down...case closed. Thanks for responding sim!
