The SD slot is not SDHC. SD up to 2GB (IIRC someone got a 4GB card to work), MS up to 8GB. Yes you can use cards in both slots at once. Don't know about 3rd party on the MS, but I would think so.

4GB non-SDHC cards work, but, generally speaking, will only recognise the first 2GB of data on them. Best to stick with a 2GB card for the SD slot.

WinHac, some people say Sd Cards will drain the Reader's battery life faster than Memory sticks.
