    question Winamp on computer sync to Android no SD support?

    OK, I tried winamp on windows and mac but I don't see how to use the android device SD card. Can winamp not use an android device SD card for media sync with a computer? I used the ICS memory management to switch the winamp app itself to SD and that didn't change anything. Winamp for android...

    Dell PERC 6i failed?

    Not my week. Got some disks not showing in my server now. I tried moving power cables around and I didn't see any changes. But when I swapped the two SFF-8484 connectors on the card I did see my drives show up in the other location. Sounds like a bad controller card, agree?
