device may not be working with all mini sd cards.
이 기기는 모든 미니 SD 카드와 같이 작동안할수도 있읍니다.


Explanation:
My translation would be "이 기기는 모든 미니 SD 카드와 같이 작동안할수도 있읍니다." "Device" here surely means some personal electronics device like mp3 player or some computer equipment. So, I'm sure my translation is just about correct.

device may not be working with all mini sd cards.
이 기기는 일부 mini SD 메모리 카드와 호환되지 않을 수 있습니다.


Explanation:
Although in strict translation, this sentence should refer to "may not be compatible with". If you prefer to attach on original text, try: "이 기기는 일부 mini SD 메모리 카드와 작동하지 않을 수 있습니다."

The term "mini SD card" can have various translations, as "미니 SD 메모리 카드", "미니 SD 카드", "mini SD 카드" or "mini SD 메모리 카드", from the least used to the most commonly used, respectively.

On of the most common errors seen during such translation is to interpret "with all" as "모든..와". This should be avoided, because in Korean this could also mean that the device may not function at all with any kinds of SD cards.

There were some mistakes on my terminology database - the most commonly used term for "mini SD card" was "mini SD 카드". Please update my suggestion accordingly ("mini SD 메모리 카드" is just a little bit more common than "미니 SD 메모리 카드" but definitely not the most popular). I apologize for this inconvenience.
