Save music to a tiny SD card for portable listening on compatible devices.

A Secure Digital card is a small flash memory device that stores and transfers a variety of files, generally from computers to other portable devices like cameras and smart phones. The card can carry music files to listen to on SD-compatible smart phones with MP3 players. Although you cannot directly transfer YouTube music to the card, you can convert and save songs from YouTube to a compatible file type for your SD card.
