    Howdy,
    I just got the Griffin Expresscard/34 reader for my MBP. I also got a Kingston 2GB SD card. I've tried everything and even formatted it to HFS+ on my PC. It just doesn't get recognized. I insert the crappy 16MB card that came with my camera and it works just fine.

    Does anyone know what's wrong, or know of a 2GB card that's confirmed to work?

    Thanks!!

    Quite common, my quite recently bought usb card reader couldn't handle it either, sucks. Just return it and get something better, preferably something which says it can handle bigger cards, maybe even sdhc?

    SDHC is different, so getting that doesn't guarantee the 2gb card will work.

    i have a $15 usb SD reader from best buy that reads my 2gb kingston card just fine.
