2407WFP and SD cards

I must say I was really annoyed to find that the 2407WFP SD card reader doesn't work with my 2GB SD card.  I just asusmed because it works in my laptop, this would work.  If I had of known at purchase time I would have ordered the card reader in the drive bay option for few extra dollars it was with the new system.  This really is annoying. Dell should warn people up front when they purchase the unit.  This limitation should be clearly indicated on the product page.
 
A friend suggested to me it might actually be software driver related, not hardware.  Is this true, and if so will Dell release updated drivers ?

Re: 2407WFP and SD cards

Hey Chris,
 
The card is a Corsair SD 2GB card.  It works fine in the camera and in the slot in my laptop.  The 2407 does read other SD card I have here, but they are just 64 MB cards.
 
Thaks for the link to the specs, but it jsut tells me SD cards, no limitations.  After readign these forums it's apparent that model does indeed have limitations at present.  Have any of the support guys tested it with any SD cards greater than 1GB ?
 
Thanks.

Just FYI, I have a Kingston 2GB SD card...works fine with my 2407, so maybe it's the brand and not the size. Strange though, shouldn't matter what brand it is....

The SanDisk 2GB SD card was tested successfully in our lab. At the time, there were not any Corsair SD cards.
