Default Do I need a special sd card reader for a mac?

Please Login to Remove!

Hi. I just got my Sprint BB 8830 and I want to buy a 2 GB Micro SD card and a reader. Do I need a special reader for the mac? Do I need a special driver for the reader or is it plug and play?

Thank you

no it should be fine. Just look on the box for the reader and it will say its good for mac and it will be plug and play.

But it works just leaving it in the phone and connecting your phone to the mac.

Ignore Borg, he's just envious.

I have a Sandisk 1gb Micro SD. Just leave it in the phone and it will show up as a Removable storage device.

I drop pictures, ringtones, and now eBooks to my card via my MAC at home and my PC here at work. The new Beta version of MobiPocket allows you to store your books on your memory card. I just downloaded it this morning, works pretty well.
