Windows XP and SDHC / SD high capacity - 4gb+ cards

I guess most people would have had this KB update applied sometime in the past.  Lurking on a corporate laptop means I miss this kind of stuff.

SDHC cards inserted don't mount, or files show up as gibberish if you don't have the right stuff.

Normal SD cards should work, so 2gb cards are fine.

For SDHC support, you'll need KB923293.  That'll get you working up to 4gb.

Then, for larger than that, you'll need KB934428.  Largest i've tried is a 16gb class 4, which now works very well indeed.

It's left as an exercise for the reader to find those patches...

Upon installing it states SP3 negates the need for this fix, however I've read all over the interwebz how people are having this problem and still no solution.
