Could I kindly ask others to try their sd cards with their 9300s?
Just to share: I recently bought a 2GB PNY sd card and plugged it in... it shows up as "secure digital storage device" under disk drives with a yellow exclamation point. Under properties it says the "device cannot start (code 10)". I also have a 16MB MMC card, but the 9300 cannot read MMC cards, just SD (a note to others in this thread; maybe that helps?) This is my first try at getting SD cards to work with the 9300.
On a related note I also bought a USB card reader and plugged the 2GB sd card into that and into the 9300. Again, the USB reader shows up as removeble media with the yellow exclamation point and code 10. However, this turns out to be the case because the 9300's usb ports are not powered. Plugging the same gadget into my desktop with the 2GB sd card in works fine.
So... I know the 2GB sd card works and it is not read by the 9300. I have just updated the 9300's system software and that did not help. There is a knowledge base article on dell.com that mentions something about Ricoh drivers -- I do not have that showing up in device manager and there is also no way to install it on my machine as dell says I should get the driver from the "drivers + utilities cd", something they neglected to ship me.
Does anyone have experience with using sd cards with the 9300 and have any experience +/- with getting them to work?
I love this machine (bought it when they first came out), but this is frustrating as hell...
