Not sure why you see a 2mb drop with yours ... I only see about a .1 - .3mb drop in free ram on mine.

Are you using encryption on your SD card? ... and ... Do you install most of your programs on your SD card or on your internal memory?

I am not sure, and I may be way off, but doesn't windows have to have some sort of program or piece of code run to allow the SD card to be accessible? This would account for some of the RAM usage, but I don't know how that would constitute the 2mb you say is being used.

I'm pretty sure you are correct about this. Also, if you have any programs that sense the SD card like meters and such then they will take up a little bit of RAM.
