A Secure Digital (SD) disc is a small chip that is used as a storage device, and can be inserted into any device that supports SD discs. As a backup for your iPod music, you can transfer up to 32GB of music from your iPod to your SD disc by connecting your iPod to your computer for synchronisation and inserting the SD disc into your computer. Once the music is successfully transferred, store the SD disc in a safe place to prevent damage, as the disc is fragile.
