It is a real problem. A mixed case annoying and strong password is near unusable if it needs to be entered every time the device needs unlocking. There is always a tradeoff between security and usability.

I bought the software from the company mentioned in the thread. My letters/numbers 4-digit unlock code was spit out in seconds. The SD card is not even needed, any encrypted single little file from the card does the job.
This needs to be addressed urgently.
