New features that are enabled in this packageThe following new features are enabled in this package:
- Support for SD High Capacity (SDHC) cards that are 8 gigabytes (GB) or larger in Windows Vista.
- Support for dual voltage (1.8-volt and 3.3-volt) Secure Digital/MultiMediaCards (SD/MMC) cards in Windows Vista.
- Support for Secure Digital Input Output (SDIO) cards in Windows Vista.
SDIO cards use an interface that adds functionality for a range of devices, such as GPS devices, Ethernet adapters, Wi-Fi or Bluetooth adapters, modems, scanners, fingerprint readers, bar-code readers, IrDA adapters, FM radio tuners, TV tuners, digital cameras, hard drives, and so on.
Issue that is fixed in this packageIn addition to the new features that are enabled, this package fixes a problem in which the SD card may occasionally stop responding after a Windows Vista-based computer resumes from sleep (S3) or from hibernation (S4).
