    I have just had my AA1 for 4-5 days. I am a total Linux Newbie.

    Yesterday, I received my 8GB SDHC card, installed it in the Storage Expansion slot and checked the storage size: 8GB. I installed it repeatedly to no avail. AA1would always recognize it in the right slot but never in the left one (i.e., it would always show 8GB). :?: :evil:

    Today, I checked again... and My Disk shows 10.5 GB free of 13.9 GB!

    What happened between today and yesterday?

    Yesterday, when looking for the new drive & storage size, I looked in System>System which shows only the SSD drive.
    Today, when looking for the new drive & storage size, I looked in File Manager which shows a combination of the SSD Hard drive (My Disk) and the SDHC card. I now see a beautiful total of 13.9 GB. :D

    Talk about feeling dumb... but it's a happy dumb. :oops: :D

    By the way, in the File Manager, if you select View>View as Advanced Mode, you will see both the My Disk and the SD/MMC Drive, allowing you to see the available space in both drives.

    Have a Great Holiday Season.

    I no longer run Linpus but maybe what happen was you rebooted with the SDHC in the left slot and then it saw the SD card.

    I suspect that's what he experienced. It's too bad Acer doesn't include an obviously accessible manual - what's a *nix forum of any sort without a bunch of RTFM comments?
