Transcend’s ExpressCard/34 & 54 SSD

Postby miket on Fri Apr 04, 2008 9:23 am

Hi all,

My support laptop has a 54mm Express Card socket built in, which I am thinking of utilising.
I'd like to get a 32GB Transcend SSD card for the slot, however I need to know if this type
of storage media is supported by Mint Daryna 4.0 ?

Can anyone advise please ?

Just incase anyone is wondering what I am talking about, here is a useful link :

Thanks.

Mike.

I think there's no problem with the card, but the card reader may give problems - but probably not

Hello again Husse !

I think you must be following me around ;)

Ok, so do I or don't I ? It's a fair investment but I really could do with the storage ....
I wonder if anyone on the forum is already using such a card via a built-in reader with Mint 4.0 ?

No I'm not following you around - I'm omnipresent :lol:
I was not aware that you thought of buying the card....
I think you have to search a bit deeper than I did
