comment /usr/bin/python Replacement

Don't use system("pause"), use getchar(). Or better, don't use any 'press any key...' commands: run your program from a proper CMD.EXE box.

comment Turning 4 GB SD card into 2 GB SD (for AKAI MPC 2000xl)
You could partition the device into two partitions of 2 GB each. But I don't know how the device will cope with that (some devices will only see the first partition; others might reject the card).
