SD card

A MicroSD card is a small, portable memory device that is designed to either function with wireless phones that use a MicroSD card port, or larger devices such as digital cameras that have a standard SD card slot. Because the card is nothing more than a memory unit you can copy data to the card, including music from your iTunes media player.


Step 1

Connect the SD card reader to your computer. Insert the USB cable running out the back of the card reader into a USB port on your computer. You can purchase such a device at most computer and electronic stores.

Step 2

Slide the MicroSD card into the MicroSD card adapter. This allows the smaller MicroSD card to slide into any standard SD card adapter or device.


Step 3

Select "Start," (My) "Computer" and double-click the removable device icon. A window opens with all the files currently saved on the MicroSD card.

Step 4

Open iTunes. If it doesn't have a desktop icon to double-click you can select "Start," "All Programs," "iTunes."



Step 5

Click "Music" from the top left corner of the program window. A track listing of all the music currently on iTunes appears on the screen.

Step 6

Click-and-drag the track listings from the iTunes program window to the open MicroSD card window. This copies the music from the computer to the MicroSD card. Close out the window once you have finished copying files over, right-click the removable device icon and select "Eject" from the pull-down menu. You can now eject the MicroSD card from the SD card adapter.
