How to Use Kingston Micro SD Adapter

By Greg Burosh

Kingston Micro Secure Digital (MicroSD) cards are small flash memory cards that can be inserted into many cell phones, MP3 players and other electronic devices to provide a storage boost. While most SD card readers are too large for MicroSD cards, you can still use them by first placing them in a Kingston card adapter. Once you place the MicroSD card into the adapter, it can be used in any regular SD card reader.

Step 1

Hold the MicroSD card with the label facing up and the arrow facing away from you.

Step 2

Hold the Kingston MicroSD card adapter with label facing up and the arrow facing away from you.

Step 3

Insert the MicroSD card into the Kingston adapter and press in until the back edge of the MicroSD card is flush with the back edge of the adapter.

Step 4

Place the Kingston MicroSD card adapter into the SD card reader on your computer or compatible electronic device. If the card is not being read, eject the card and remove the MicroSD card from the adapter. Press the card into place once more and reinsert it into the SD card reader.
