The ssa100 has some firmware limitations from what I read that only
allow you to use up to 4GB drives. You can use 9GB drives but only about
to use 8GB drives and some reports you can never get that last 1GB back
from putting it in there. Also apparently you can do the same thing with
18GB drives but miss the last 2GB of it too.

There is a metal thingy underneath the tray that you push up and it lets
you pull the tray out. Its like a hook. As you pull it out it will catch
so push it back in a bit push it up and you can take the tray out.

My ssa100 is kinda rotting right now since no BSD supports the card for
