1. from looking into it, i think its just a way to help prevent the OS memory leaks


2. options > memory card ENABLE the mass storage mode, then usb connect it

Memory cleaner does not free up any memory.
It overwrites deleted data, as an additional security measure.

under media card options, mine are: On, None, On, Yes

When I plug it in via USB a propt usually comes up asking what i want to do with it. I X out of it and go to my computer, and the media card shows as a drag and drop storage drive.
