    Can I use chdk in Sandisk Ultra II SD Plus

    I consider buying new sd card > 2G Sandisk Ultra II SD Plus
    One that has built-in usb.
    Is it "SanDisk Ultras USB-Edition" mentioned in Bootable SD card - CHDK Wiki ; Windows: Case #2.
    I'm not sure if another method (Windows: Case #1) can make the card bootable.
    And if it can, is there any problem using that card in Windows.
    Will it be auto-detected as a drive when the card is insert to usb?

    Thank you.
    (And sorry for my bad grammar.)

    I think you can use this cool utility :)
    Card Tricks - a small utility to help manage SD cards
    Option "Allow fixed disks" could help you.

    please read this thread before trying to buy or 'tame' large cards:

    Autoboot with 8GB and HDHacker Possibillity

    I'm sorry, but due to the complication of modifying the registry I have not yet
    included the fixed disk hack into CardTricks, you'll first have to do that yourself
    as shown in thread above. After that CardTricks should be able to format it,
    but I can't test that (don't have any cards > 2 Gb)
    About the Wiki: as far as I understand that implies that Sandisk USB's won't work ?

    oh, and glad you like it brabl2, please post bugs/suggestions if you have any  :D

    Hmm...it looks that "Allow fixed disks" option is not neccesary in this case.
    The CardTricks utility shows Drive type : Removable (for my 1GB SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus).

    EDIT:
    CardTricks utility works with 1GB SanDisk Ultra II SD Plus
    I verified that 'Format as FAT' and 'Make bootable' functions work without any problem.

    I'd read those topics, but don't understand much.
    May be it's too difficult and risky (with my incompetent computer skill).
    May I should postpone the budget a little longer and study more.

    Thank you very much.
