How to Use a Micro SD Memory Card
A micro SD memory card is commonly used in cell phones and other mobile devices. The card is roughly a third of the size of a typical SD card. Most card readers do not support micro SD cards. There is a work around, though. The work around basically turns the micro SD card into a regular size SD card. You can then use the card with other digital devices, such as digital cameras. With a micro SD card, you can easily transfer pictures, music and video from you phone to your computer.
Things You'll Need
- SD card adapter or kit
Place the micro SD card your cell phone or other device that supports micro SD cards. Place data on the card.
Remove the micro SD card from your device. Place it in the SD card adapter.
Place the adapter into your computer to transfer data.
Remove the adapter from the computer.
Place the adapter in any device that supports an SD card if you wish to use your micro SD card as a normal SD card.
Remove the micro SD card from the adapter when you wish to use it in your phone or other device supporting micro SD cards.
Tips & Warnings
- If you're only using the micro SD card as a regular SD card, leave it in the adapter at all times to prevent loss.
- SD card adapters and kits can be purchased wherever SD cards are sold.
- Never force the micro SD card into the adapter. There is only one correct way to insert the card. If you encounter a lot of resistance, then you are inserting the card incorrectly.
