I don't know if the SD reader in the Kobo uses all the pins correctly - it may not use all the data pins, or the command line pin, as an example.

Basically, it may read things okay, but won't be fully functional. If I want to do anything complex to a card, I use a good reader or USB adapter which fully supports the specs of the memory card.
Thats a valid reasoning. And I appreceate your expanding on the suggestion and as to why. I wonder if Kobo Development would care to add some input as well as this particular thought line?




Thanks for taking the time.
