    Micro SD Adapter Instructions

    SD cards provide a convenient and reliable medium to store data for a wide variety of devices. The use of SD cards has become commonplace with personal computers, digital cameras, mp3 players, and many more gadgets within the spectrum of everyday use. Given that there are many SD card formats of various size dimensions, not every card will fit into every device, but it is possible to adapt the smaller cards for use with larger card slots.

    How is a microSD Card Different?

    The microSD card stands out because of its small size. It is the smallest of the SD cards, which is why it has been widely adopted in the mobile marketplace. More importantly, microSD cards are backwards compatible with SD card readers and slots, provided that you use a microSD card adaptor.

    Why use a microSD Card Adapter?

    A microSD adaptor makes it possible to use a microSD card in any device that has only an SD card slot and not a microSD card slot. The adaptor, itself, looks like, and functions just the same, as a standard size SD card.
