    This might sound like a silly question but how does the sd card fit into the RNS e unit. Behind the screen the two sd slots are there but the sd card just does not go in?

    It should just slide in.

    You sure you're putting it in the right way?

    You sure it's the right kind? Is there already a card in maybe?

    Tried both ways there seems to be a metal bit blocking acces to the width of the card

    N8, you might need a new woman - yours sounds faulty.

    Russo, SD cards are the same size and shape regardless of capacity - they should all go in the slot the same: if the device isn't compatible it just won't work once it's there.

    Can you take a photo? It sounds like there's a blanking board across the slot :s

    Yup, 2GB each. Didn't know they'd be a different size/shape for a 4GB though.

    No the cards are the same size.

    You are correct it does look like there is a blanking board across the slots

    Looks to me like the face has been taken off and not put back on properly so the slots aint lining up.

    I think Adam is right, whether is SD or SDHC card they use same format so should slide in nicely. Looks like a screwdriver job for me:]

    You can use 4GB card, but it cannot say SDHC.

    These are rarer than hen's teeth btw. 4GB was never a proper standard for SD cards and very few were made as SDHC took over. They do work if you can find them though :)

    In the next few weeks I will have 3x 4Gb SD Cards (non HC) for sale when new car comes. So they will appear in classifieds shortly.

    Are these still available ? if they are give me a shout, as Ive just discovered one of my 4gb Transcend cards has gone belly up and refuses to accept that write protection is off ! Still works in RNS-E but I cant add or remove anything from the card, so need some new ones asap !!
